George Town (Penang), Malaysia

George Town (Penang), Malaysia

Renowned as both “the Pearl of the Orient” and “the Food Capital of Malaysia”, the island of Penang has it all: venerable history, a potpourri of multicultural influences, pristine beaches, and of course fantastic food. Shop to your heart’s content at Menara KOMTAR: At 65 stories, it’s both Penang's largest shopping mall and tallest building. The bustling capital city of Georgetown features colonial architecture, old-fashioned shops, Chinese and Indian temples, and the Penang Museum, ideal for a stroll though the city’s history, cultures and festivals. Great day excursions include a visit to the underwater world of the Palau Payar Marine Park, a round of golf at Bukit Jambul Country Club, or a tour of Southeast Asia’s largest Buddhist temple, Kek Lok Si, and the Penang Botanical Gardens, located at the base of Penang Hill.
