The buzz in the streets is infectious! We also sampled some local delicacies in a eatery there and its highly recommended.”
“George Town is steeped in history and Kannan did a great job of explaining the transformation of this place over the last 3 centuries. The quaint Armenian Church is a must visit. The bazaars are a great hub of activity and worth a visit.”
