The sights and sounds of Penang reflect the city’s rich cultural heritage, from ornate temples to tropical gardens. This is your opportunity to glimpse a world where history, tradition and nature blend harmoniously and become greater than their parts.
George Town for example has a fascinating colonial past and its streets are lined with stately buildings from that time. Every structure has its own unique tale to tell, and you can take a guided walking tour during your trip to Penang to explore the district in more depth.Penang Hill, 821 metres above sea level, is home to some of the grandest and most flamboyant of the city’s old colonial mansions, now turned into rather more useful shops and restaurants for the citizens and visitors.
You get excellent panoramic views of the city after an exhilarating 30 minute ride by cable car to the funicular station at the top of the hill.
