Alliance Française de Penang

On 26 September, The Alliance Française de Penang in George Town unveiled its 20 meter art mural called Paris/Penang which features major landmarks (such as the Eiffel Tower, Penang Hill, etc) in Paris and Penang that were then linked together via the Penang Bridge. The art work was created by local artist Elan Hasyim and it was painted in a way to portray the relations between the two cities.

This large mural can be found on the wall of the building of The Alliance Française de Penang, which is located at Jalan Phuah Hin Leong, George Town. The Alliance Française de Penang is a unique association and a language center in Penang that aims to promote both French language and culture all around the world.

The Penang Boat Float




The colorful Penang Boat Float reportedly won the 1Malaysia International Tourism Night Floral Parade which was held at Putrajaya back in June 2014. After the end of the festival in Putrajaya, the boat was brought to the Karpal Singh Drive (formerly known as the Nautilus Bay or Jelutong Promenade) for display to the public every night. The boat showcases several beautifully lit places of attraction or landmarks in Penang. The boat is also designed with a dragon head and shape, to represent the annual international dragon boats festival held on the island.
