Trip Planner Asia  /  Malaysia  /  Penang  /  Penang Island

Pearl of the Orient

Penang Island blends historical elements with natural exploration. Long a place of trade between Asian kingdoms and European colonial powers, the island's varied history and cultural influences are seen in a range of historical and cultural sites around its main urban centers, from British forts and factories to Chinese shophouses and narrow market streets. Outside of the towns, the island offers palm-lined beaches, sprawling native jungles, and agricultural land, which is known for providing the island with the fresh produce used in its thriving cuisine. Our Malaysia trip builder combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
