Kampung Kastam, Balik PulauKampung Kastam, Balik Pulau (25 November, 2012)

Kampung Kastam (GPS: 5.37427, 100.30104) is the name of the government quarters in Bukit Gelugor, in Gelugor, Penang. It is a working class neighbourhood established to house employees of the customs department in the early 1960's. While the government quarters still exist, they appear to be in a rather forlorn state. Although spacious, many of these early quarters are now vacant. Later housing developments such as those at Brown Garden provide a contrast as to the amount of space given to each unit.
