Bon Ton’s Straits Collection Penang

Now, if you want to spend a few nights in Penang  , you can stay comfortably and well cared for in some roomy, well restored antique Chinese shop houses located in the core zone of UNESCO Heritage Georgetown.

“Situated right off the main strand of Penang’s Chulia Street, tucked within Stewart Lane, sits renowned Bon Ton’s latest collection of 5 adjoining newly restored Chinese shop houses . . . two houses now operate as one enclave consisting of Kopi Cine café, a public reading & film space and a tea & coffee shop. One of which was a coffee factory; the outmoded machinery used back when, remains in the indoor courtyard by a comfort station, preserved for its historic significance. Even its bricked walls still retain blemished remnants of roasted beans!” (citation:

4 more shop houses are situated at Armenian Street. They contain “Bon Ton The Shop” – with Fashion Accessories & Lifestyle Gifts – and the Tea and Coffee Salon (and shop) China Joe’s, beside an other 4 residences (two short term only).

All this is explained much better and with maps and a lot of beautiful pictures at the new website, which we had the honor to create for Bon Ton:
