Where You Would Find Better Local Food :

Pulau Tikus- literally translated means 'Rat Island'. There is an island offshore (next to Penang)  which has this name. But the name usually refers to the market/town area which is popular amongst locals. This is the place to go if you are looking for local food done the local way and at local prices (instead of the bloated prices of Gurney Drive). Starts early in the morning till lunchtime. Maybe this is the place where the rats used to gather in force until they were led off by that chap with the pipe/flute ? On the other hand, maybe they were referring to all the people who gather here....must have been some envious fellow.

* Note: Best place for those looking to draw money from ATMs, there is a wide range of banks here. You should be able to find some machine who will accept your bank card. (failing which, I will gladly advance cash for you with suitable collateral. Seen Repo Man recently ? Just leave your kidney here, surely you don't need both.)
