Inspired by Man Asian Literary Prize winner Tan Twan Eng's first novel, 'The Gift of Rain trail' is designed for readers to experience the tale in 3D. Hosted by BFM radio host, Umapagan Ampikaipakan, readers will get to visit various spots mentioned in the book that includes Millionaire's Row on Northam Road, Esplanade, Floating Mosque of Tanjung Bungah and more. The half-day trail starts from E&O Hotel and wraps up with a scenic funicular train ride up Penang Hill. One of the trail's highlight includes a seafood lunch and steamboat dinner set with author Tan Twan Eng himself. For a sneak preview, check out our interactive map or download the PDF version.
