It was too heat to do a lot of walking around even in the late afternoon, but there is so much to take in George Town that it would be a pity to miss out, so after a bit of haggling which still no doubt resulted in me paying way over the odds, I opted for an hour's trishaw tour of the old city.
Along Lebuh Chulia.

Along Lebuh Campbell
Masjid Kapitan Keling ~ a spectacular-looking mosque at the junction of Lebuh Campbell and Labuh Pitt.
Coffee shop in Little India.
The Victoria Memorial Clock Tower.
