Penang Road Photos

Penang Road photos have a lot of variety in terms of buildings and human activities as the place is one of the longest and busiest place in Penang. Here are some of the photos of Penang Road. One day you must come and walk the street yourself. Meanwhile, take the virtual tour of my pictorial essay below.
