Discover Penang

Penang has rightly been named “The Pearl of the Orient”. Here you will find a fascinating fusion of East and West, where old traditions and old world charm are still maintained.

Penang, rich with an impressive history, is a testament to the multiracial population living together in harmony and prosperity. Their well-preserved buildings dating back to colonial times as can be found in the main city of Georgetown have even earned a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site listing. Penang is more than history it is also a place to explore the hidden streets and secrets of Georgetown, to enjoy the scrumptious blend of local flavours, to relax at inviting beaches and to discover a range of unique attractions.
