About Penang

The island of Penang is located off the western coastline of the Malaysian Peninsula. This former British colony is home to an array of fascinating historical, cultural and natural attractions, from the lovely beaches along its northwest coast to the World Heritage listed zones of Georgetown. It has a long history of trade and settlement, which has led to the fascinating multiculturalism that exists across the island today. There is something for everyone when visiting the island of Penang.

Though not as renowned as those found on the Malaysian mainland, beaches in Penang are still ideal spots to relax. Penang National Park has several secluded gems, including Teluk Kempi and Teluk Duyung.

Georgetown is a great tourist attraction with plenty of colonial, post-colonial and pre-colonial architecture to explore. The UNESCO World Heritage Zone in the core of Georgetown is highly recommended. Walking the historic lanes and streets, including Armenian Street, is a must.

Penang is also home to some major spiritual sites which are among the most renowned in Southeast Asia. The Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple and the Kapitan Keling Mosque are well worth exploring for a few hours.
