Malaysia: July 3rd - George Town

Overslept slightly in the morning and couldn't sample the buffet breakfast here, so instead headed towards the Prangin Mall for some brunch. This mall is situated next to Komtar, a 58-storey office tower built about twenty years ago, which was once a state-of-the-art office complex and mall, but the shops have all but gone now and the whole thing is now just a horrible eyesore that can be seen from miles away.

Then it was on a bus out to see Wat Chayamangkalaram, a Thai temple of a huge Reclining Buddha, which is colourfully impressive.

On the opposite side of the road is the equally impressive Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple, this one featuring a standing Buddha.
