This 2 kilometer (1.25 mile) esplanade is a popular venue for morning walks, jogs and tai chi exercises, often followed by a delicious bowl of bah kut teh (herbal pork rib soup). It is also the unofficial civic centre for the Chinese community who constitute over 90% of the island's population. Guests of Penang residents are nearly always treated to this breezy and characteristically simple locale of leisure, including the nearby street market and its appetising array of restaurants and food stalls. Like so many other nostalgic corners on the island, modern cafés have sprung up in the numerous bungalows that line the drive.
