Rain does that for the first part. Run down is a bit of the charm in my opinion. Run down but real and functioning. As opposed to what we have here. Just has always been kind of unique to me.

I guess its really a personal decision on what you think of Penang. I walk for hours there and enjoy myself even in the heat. But I no longer find walking for hours pleasant here. Never mind the heat in either city. Perhaps its that myself and the family are tourists there, but locals here.
