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.
