The small area of Little India in Georgetown Penang is a lively place to stay, with some amazing Indian food, lively street life, Indian shops and a seemingly endless amount of festivals, giving this area of town a very different feel than the nearby Chinatown area.
Little India doesn't have that many places to stay within it's actual boundaries, but there are an ever increasing number of small guesthouses and hotels just a minute or two by foot.
