Step into old-world Asia in Penang, the longstanding link between Asia’s great Kingdoms. With a rich history and colourful culture, Penang has much to offer today’s travellers, who are charmed by the quaint colonial style and lively local atmosphere. A UNESCO World Heritage Site with a big personality, here you will find street art and artisan boutiques, fashionable cafés and trishaws pedalling past, plus carefree carnivals and a diverse mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian people. With this cultural fusion comes some of the world’s best street food, especially in George Town. Away from the streets you will find temples, mansions and a hillside funicular railway, plus beachside resorts along the coast.
