  • Overview

    Penang is home to inviting and soft palm fringed beaches. George Town, Penang Island’s colourful capital, where British colonial buildings, Hindu temples, mosques and Buddhist statues neighbour Chinese shophouses, is overlooked by a funicular railway and thoroughly modern skyscrapers. Penang’s long history as the link between Asia, Europe and the Middle East makes it great for food; dine on excellent regional cuisine, sublime seafood, or take a seat at the hawker stalls of the bustling night markets.
