Tourist Police, 2013
There are now Tourist Police based on Muntri Street. Tourist Police are necessary. Around 50% of the foreigners I know in Penang have either been pick-pocketed at Komtar, had bags snatched or their wives have had gold necklaces ripped from them, along the main road, in Batu Ferringhi, by motor-cycle thieves. Do not think I am being negative about Penang, I love the place, but you need to be careful.

This is the exotic food available to backpackers in Muntri Street, 2014
