A vibrant state with a diverse mix of Eastern and Western cultures, Penang is a melting pot of unique heritage, history, traditions and charm to delight the whole family. With an ever-changing and exciting food scene, Penang delivers full-on flavour. George Town holds little surprises for even intrepid travellers; a new dish, a hidden bar, or the coolest street art. Alternatively, at Batu Ferringhi on the northern coast, visitors can spend lazy sun-drenched days poolside, or take a sunset stroll along the white, sandy beach.
George Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
A charming town that features a wealth of historical and colonial buildings and architecture, a walk through its storied, vibrant streets will have you reaching for your camera at every turn. With impressive street art, cute cafés, quaint temples and the most yummy street food, no trip to Penang would be complete without spending a day or two getting lost in the streets here.
The Habitat, Penang Hill
Enjoy an immersive and educational experience, not to mention incredible sweeping views over Penang Island when you visit this amazing canopy and treetop walk. Perched high up above a 130 million-year-old rainforest, you'll explore a myriad of flora and fauna – plants, trees, insects, birds, reptiles, and mammals - as you make your way leisurely to the spectacular viewing point. A not-to-be-missed Penang experience for the young and young-at-heart.
For the Foodies!
Tuck into the most sumptuous, hearty meals along the streets at hawker stalls, duck into quaint cafes or dress up for a fine dining rendezvous. Whether you are with family or friends, each meal is a delightful experience waiting to be savoured. It's no wonder - Malaysia’s food capital takes great pride in its reigning title, regardless of where you decide to dine.
