Pulau Pinang, the 'Island of the Betelnut', has long
been an inviting destination for traders and travellers.
The city, founded
by British traders in 1786, offers the curious explorer a wealth of fascinating
sights that reflect its diverse heritage. A centuries-long history of trade with
China, India, the Middle East and Europe comes to life here more than anywhere
