The Penang Island City Hall was built in 1880; the town hall on the left by Wright Street and the City Hall on the right by the sea is the new building of the city council, completed in 1903. The white exterior symbolizes the status and contribution of the City Council in George Town, and is also the eye-catching architectural landscape of Old Gurney Drive. The two buildings, together with the lawn in front of them, are so beautiful that people often forget their original functions.
Fine colonial buildingAnother good British colonial building on the heritage zone next to the padang and the esplinade. You can enter and see the small exhibition of the history of Penang up to the present.
The building is full of strong Victorian style and was the headquarters of the Penang Municipal Council at that time. The memorial to soldiers who died in World War I is also erected here. In 2013, Penang also won the Best Municipal Council Award from Europe.
To the left of the old Gurney Drive, there are two colonial government halls. The white exterior symbolizes the status and contribution of the City Council in George Town. It is also the eye-catching architectural landscape of the old Gurney Drive. The two city council halls, the town hall on the left and right side of Wright Street, were built in 1880; the city hall on the right by the sea, which is the new building of the city council, was completed in 1903. In Chinese, Town Hall is a town hall, and it can also be called a city hall like City Hall.
If you want to see the clock tower where Lust Jie was filmed, it is already very close~ I also stayed here for a while because I think this building is quite beautiful, there is a beach next to it and there is a large grassland, and I walked to the other side of the grassland. It's very close to the clock tower~
One of the most beautiful buildings in Penang, separated from the sea by a road. But when I went there, the front lawn was completely fenced up, and it was probably being renovated, which caused the whole scenery to look bad. Of course, this was only temporary.
Penang Town Hall, on the west side of the Old Gurney Drive, the building is exquisite and elegant, erected on the side of the huge lawn very eye-catching. The one on the left is called Town Hall, which was built in 1880; the one on the right by the sea is called City Hall, which was built in 1903 and is the new building of the city council. During our stay in Penang, the new building has always been repaired, which affected the viewing effect. Looking at these two elegant buildings, together with the clear sea next to them, there are children playing on the big lawn, the sun is shining, and it is a wonderful and harmonious picture, people can't help but want to sit down and enjoy it all. Especially at dusk, the sky is brilliant, and I will be bathed in this orange splendor with the building, and I have forgotten the way home.
