GEORGE TOWN: Fifty-two beauties went on trishaws to take in the sights and sounds of the various places around the Unesco heritage area here.
The trishaw ride with the Miss Tourism International 2011 participants lasted more than a hour.
They were taken to landmark locations like Fort Cornwallis, Town Hall, City Hall, the State Assembly Hall, the Goddess of Mercy Temple and the Hainan Temple.
They ended their ride at the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion where they sampled Penang’s hawker delights.
On Thursday night, they gathered at the Straits Quay Convention Centre for a charity auction banquet dinner.
The function raised RM40,000 for three charities – the Penang Adventist Hospital’s Dr J. Earl Gardner Fund, the Lions Club of Penang Light’s Prosthetic Limbs Fund and the Association of Resource and Education for Autistic Children. - theStarOnline
