This is a travel video of us exploring the neighborhood of Little India, an ethnic Indian enclave, located in the heart of UNESCO heritage city George Town, Penang, Malaysia. As we wandered down Little India we were assaulted by a series of colorful saris, thumping Hindu music and hustle and bustle of vendors, street merchants and pedestrians all sharing this space. We noticed men sitting down on curbs enjoying candid conversations while a decorated rickshaw tries to negotiate through a crowd. Naan bread, roti and other Indian breads are being formed in a large cooking pan. As we wander further we notice colorful displays of saris, flowers and trinkets being sold in nearby shops. Overall, as we wandered down Little India, we felt as though we were back in India once again.

Video Script:

Penang is known for its distinct neighborhoods and none is more colorful than Little India.

As you might expect there are also lots of Indian restaurants in Little India so it is the perfect place to get some Palak Paneer or curry or Naan bread, Lassis or anything!

One of the things that you can find in Little India are lots of Saris stores and Bengal stores. Lots of shopping to be done.
