Penang

Trip Planner Asia  /  Malaysia  /  Penang

Pearl of the Orient

Highly industrialized and urbanized, the island of Penang sits off the western coastline of Peninsular Malaysia and boasts a rich cultural heritage blending Chinese, Indian, and European influences. Although most visitors come for the beaches and fishing villages, no tour of Penang is complete without a stop in World Heritage-listed George Town. This cosmopolitan island capital boasts a diverse architectural heritage, its oldest sections packed with 19th-century mosques, churches, temples, and colonial buildings. Another highlight of Penang tourism are the many festivals, showcasing cultural diversity and offering foreign visitors a chance to soak up the atmosphere of the "Pearl of the Orient." Penang is in Malaysia. Whether you only want to go to Penang, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Malaysia sightseeing website .
