George Town, the capital of Penang, takes on a different look and feel as night falls. One of the most charming cities in Asia, George Town is one of those places that invites you to explore, whether by day or by night.

If you are a photography enthusiast, the inner quarters are a perfect place to get character-rich shots, places such as Toh Aka Lane, Stewart Lane and Armenian Street. Wait for a lone motorcycle or bicycle to pass, then capture it with a long shuttle speed, creating a stream of light down the road.

Perhaps the best time to explore is at dusk, when the sky turns a brilliant blue and the streets are beginning to be lit up. It's called the blue hour, or l'heure bleue in French, when the sky is neither daylight-bright nor completely dark. In Penang, the time frame for blue hour is only about 20 minutes or less, so you really have to work fast to get the most shots during that short period.

The most important equipment for capturing night scenes of George Town, apart from a good camera, is a steady tripod. This will allow you to get sharp images even with very long exposures.
