A kind of architectural playground, George Town is city offering an attractive mix of style, history, and culture.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tech Dome Penang and Tower Spa. Take a break from the city and head to Penang National Park (Taman Negara Pulau Pinang) and Batu Ferringhi Beach. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Wonderfood Museum Penang, contemplate the long history of Cheong Fatt Tze - The Blue Mansion, get engrossed in the history at Pinang Peranakan Mansion, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

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.
