City Walk 2019 In conjunction with City Day

We woke up early on New Year morning to join the other Penangites for the City Walk 2019. City Walk is an annual event organized by Majlis Bandaraya Pulau Pinang in conjunction with City Day. This City Walk is me and husband's third time (after 2014 and 2017), Balqis' second time and of course the first one for Bilal.

What I like about the City Walk is that not like other walk where you just walk for few kilometres to get the medal. One of this walk objective is to let you know more about Penang generally.


Each participants will be given a passport with five Penang attractions or historical places, and you will get a sticker (previous ones were stamped) when you reach the places.

The first pit stop every year is the Penang City Town Hall. I didn't manage to get a photo there as we arrived a bit late and there were already crowd on the road and we couldn't go near the Town Hall. The event started with and opening speech by Penang Chief Minister and we started to walk at about 7.40 am.

The second pit stop is the Friendship Pocket Park.

The third pit stop was at an old Odeon cinema located on Penang Road.

penang road old tram history

If you passed by the Penang Road, you may still see the old tram tracks on the road. that were used before 1920s. The electric tram made its debut in 1905, giving birth to the George Town Municipal Tramway (GTMT), which was tasked with the running of the tram system. The trams were gradually replaced by trolleybuses in the 1920s.

The forth pit stop was the Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling.
