Talipon Road (or Jalan Talipon, which can also be translated as ‘Telephone Road’) is a little street that links Kinta Lane and Madras Lane in George Town. The street was named so due to the nearby Telekom Malaysia Berhad’s telecommunications building.
Kinta Lane (or Lorong Kinta) is a rather small street in George Town that starts from Burmah Road to Macalister Road. The street is recognizable by its large furniture mall, Mekio, which is also converted from the old Rex cinema. A row of pre-war shophouses located along the street are now renovated to be a part of the ‘Penang Furnishing City’ in George Town.
