Cycling through Kuala Kangsar Road

Kuala Kangsar Road or Jalan Kuala Kangsar, is a street in George Town that was named after Kuala Kangsar, the old Royal town of Perak state, and was once a focal area of Malay theater and performance in the early days. The street is usually crowded with marketplace activities in the mornings as the Chowrasta Market is located nearby too.

George Town Link Bike (LinkBike)

As part of Penang government’s effort to promote cycling, the Link Bike Sharing System was introduced by the Penang Island City Council in 2016 to provide a convenient bicycle-sharing system for the public. One can simply pick up a bicycle from any station and then return it to other stations which will be located at 25 strategic places in George Town. The system also provides an alternative to sight-seeing George Town and to use the service, one can just simply download its app and follow the instruction.
