Penang is a bustling place that melds eastern and western cultures. It’s known as the “Emerald of the Indian Ocean.” George Town, which is the seat of the Penang State Government, has many preserved historic structures. It was inscribed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. The souvenir in the image depicts the trishaw, a common sight along Penang streets. The trishaw was the main mode of transport for Penang residents in the early years. The fare was calculated based on the total ride time. Manual trishaws did not disappear after automobiles became ubiquitous. They remain in use, catering primarily to tourists.
