Explore Penang

Set upon unending adventures

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 else.
