All roads in Penang lead to ... Komtar!

During my makan trek, all roads in Penang seemed to lead to E&O, Sunway Hotel and ... Komtar!

Dominating the island’s skyline is KOMTAR (Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak) the famous landmark of Penang and touted to be the icon of its urban renewal programme. With the cost of RM207 million, the 65-storey building was the tallest in Asia at that time.
The buildings consist of a 12-sided geometric block, 760ft (232m) tall and sitting atop a 4-storey podium. The complex comprises office and retail commercial space as well as public and recreational facilities.
