Holidays in Penang

The unique culture and heritage of Penang stems from Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. Sometimes referred to as the 'Pearl of the Orient' there is a true fusion of East and West, old and new, and some of the best cuisine you will find in Malaysia. It's capital, George Town is UNESCO listed and was founded in the late 18th century. The city streets boast architectural styles from the 18th and 20th centuries so you really feel you are discovering all the layers of history this city has to offer. Not only is there British architecture but a host of beautiful Chinese and Indian-style temples. Kek Lok Si, or the 'Temple of Supreme Bliss' is the largest Buddhist temple in South East Asia and the seven-storey pagoda is truly something to be seen with Chinese, Thai and Burmese designs.

Head to the top of Penang Hill for panoramic views of the island and George Town either by the funicular railway or a three-hour hike which starts in the botanic gardens. The island's main stretch, Batu Ferringhi Beach is a bustling destination and shopping at the night market is a must.
