Burmah Crescent, George Town, PenangBurmah Crescent, George Town, Penang (29 December, 2018)

Burmah Crescent , or Lengkok Burma, is a minor road in George Town. This curving road links Burmah Road to Codrington Avenue. It also forms junctions with Peirce Close, Peirce Road, Tingkat Burma, Raja Gopal Road and Thaton Lane.

Burmah Crescent has one of the few pockets of undeveloped land in George Town. The area is called Lau1 heok3 Hnui2, meaning "wild pepper leaf plantation" in Penang Hokkien. You can even find here a few kampong houses, something astonishing as Burmah Crescent is close to the stately neighbourhood of Codrington Avenue.
