Things to do indoors in Penang

Updated: 1 Jul 2013

It’s hazy outside and it’s better to remain indoors. So, we’ve got a list of fun, cool things for you to do while being able to breathe deeply!

Live Performances
There are a couple of shows for you to choose from this weekend. Here’s where you can absorb not only culture but also air-conditioning and way cleaner air to breathe in. There’s a dance performance that marries two very different styles, Grey and live music from the ever-smiling Bihzhu.

Nurse a Drink or Three
Catch Happy Hour around town in air-conditioned places such as Nueve with their Asahi promotion, The Lounge draught Tiger beer promotion and Oktober Munich where there are special prices for three pints of Guinness.

Soak in Art
There are plenty of art exhibitions going on right now. To list down a few, there’s a solo exhibition by Franky Pandana, A Town Called George by Marie Dargent, Strange Paradise by Anurendra Jegadeva and Her Studio featuring art and life of women artists.

A Touch of Retail Therapy
It might be a good time to catch up on some shopping. There are a couple of sales happening such as La Senza semi annual clearance sale and COCO Furniture Concept Home Fair at Auto City. For a unique touch, wonder down to Singapore House where a host of Singaporean artisan labels are selling their products.

When All Else Fails, Eat in Elegant Surroundings
To avoid breathing in toxic air, satiate your hunger in eateries that are indoor-prone such as the elegant and modern Chinese cuisine at Sesame + Soy, Feringgi Grill that's enveloped in old school charm, Passage Thru India and Chin’s Stylish Chinese Cuisine on the pier.
