What to do in Penang

Penang is a Malaysian city that attracts travellers from all over the world with its historical sights, fascinating architecture, lovely beaches, and the most incredible food. So it won’t be hard for you to love the taste of Penang too.

Visit George Town and be charmed by this UNESCO World Heritage Site full of historic buildings, religious sites, and cool street vibe. Travel back in time at Fort Cornwallis. Then take your camera to Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Khoo Kongsi, Penang City Hall, Pinang Peranakan Mansion, Queen Victoria Clock Tower, and Penang Bridge during sunset or at night.

You’ll also be impressed by the gorgeous places of worship in George Town. See the black domes of Kapitan Keling Mosque. Be dazzled by the Dhammikarama Burmese Temple. Enjoy a visit to the golden Wat Chaiyamangalaram.

Penang’s Air Itam and Bayan Lepas also have gorgeous architecture. You can’t miss the Jade Emperor’s Pavilion, the towering Kek Long Si Temple, and the stunning detail of the Snake Temple.

Hop on a train to Penang Hill for the best views of George Town and the Strait of Malacca. Go trek the jungle and set up camp at Penang National Park. Enjoy the sun, sand, and splash of waves in the secluded beaches of Muka Head, Pantai Kerachut, and Teluk Kampi.

You can’t fly to Penang and not taste the local cuisine. Taste Char Koay Teow, the rich and spicy Assam laksa, the incredible choices of the Lok Lok steamboat, and more with a food trip in Penang.
