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. Penang cuisine is a flavorful mixture of traditional Malay cuisine, with a side of Chinese, a dash of Indian, and a sprinkling of fusion cuisine like Baba Nyonya and Peranakan. And the best way to experience this world of flavors is to hit the streets and follow your nose.

Discover the bustling capital city of Georgetown and marvel at the colonial architecture, old-fashioned shops, Chinese and Indian temples, and the Penang Museum. The inner city of Georgetown is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and consists of a mixture of colonial architecture—a reminder of this city’s British past—and the ideal spot for a stroll to get a feel for 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.
