Penang time tunnel

This post is all about the history of Penang so some may find it interesting while some may not. The Time tunnel is quite a treasure for those who likes all things old, like me. I’m not so much into history but I adore old things like furnitures, kitchenwares, appliances, abacus, tiffin carriers, etc… Many we do not see in our era anymore. Or maybe we do not use them anymore and they may only be ornaments or decorations in cafes or shops. IMG_9642.JPG

The entrance fee for tourists is RM22 per person which includes the time tunnel and 3D art where you can pose to make the paintings come alive. They may have coupons you can print or show as a photo at the counter and get a few bucks off. We got RM2 off per person. Check out their website and you may find the voucher link. I liked the fact that they had kids edition summary for almost all exhibits so it was really a breeze to read through all of them!

To end off in a light note, stumbled upon a cafe with an interesting wall painting.
