Penang Swatow Lane New World Park or fondly called as ‘Sin Sei Kai’ by the local was once a happening place where Penang folks came by to unwind in the evening. Located beside the Tune Hotel, It make the way to New world park is easier as much as possible.
It used to be the ground for two cinemas namely Globe and Lido. Paying about 65 cents to a dollar, one could enjoy the latest movie in a decent cinema. Within same vicinity, there was a sheltered opera hall equipped with wooden benches for elderly folks to enjoy the Chinese opera.
Some of the restaurant that available at new world park…
On that day, Starbuks gave us 2 up of coffee. They told us that that is the new flavor and they wanna us to try. It’s kinda suck…too bitter…btw, thx ya…hehe..
What else we wanna do? Sit and surf net lor…I use broadband coz Starbucks internet connection damn slow…
If you visit New World Park today, only the historical wall of its park is retained. The place is re-branded as one-stop to get Penang cuisine ranging from hawker food to a relatively classy cafe like Starbucks or an upscale restaurant like Starview. And once again, it seems New World Park becomes the place to hang out once more!

The mountain of shaved ice is liberally doused with sweet syrups and condensed milk, crowned with goodies like grass jelly (leong fun), sweet corn, red beans and attap chee (palm fruit) This ABC, the ice kacang or ais kacang contained 4 type of fruits (mango, banana, papaya and kiwi) and topped by the scooped of vanilla ice cream.
