Penang

An all-in-one package, Penang offers a rich array of attractions including fun beaches, historical buildings, diverse cultural attractions and a delectable cuisine. Combine that with cozy hotels, fabulous resorts and great restaurants and you have all it takes to enjoy a great vacation in a fun and tropical setting with the right dose of history and culture.

Hotels

Much of Penang’s luxury-style, mid-range and budget accommodation can be found in the capital, Georgetown, but travelers can still venture out to the main tourist beach of Batu Feringghi and check out a couple of fancy beach-resorts.

Food & Drink

Penang is famed for its local breed of Malay, Chinese and Indian delicacies, much like the rest of the mainland. To enjoy the best culinary experience, be adventurous and sample local street stalls, especially those that are patronized by locals.

Shopping

Penang is a shopper’s paradise, especially during the retail festivals in August. Like most places in Asia, bargaining is expected, so make sure you fight for the best price, and remember that if it’s expensive, you can probably find it on a street stall for less!

Spa

If it is opulent spas that you are looking for, the classic luxury hotels at Georgetown and the fancy beach resorts at the tourist beach of Batu Feringghi are the places to go to.
