Everything You Need To Know About Penang's Area

Dubbed ‘The Pearl of the Orient’ by foreign traders in the distant past, Penang is an eclectic and interesting fusion of a variety of local cultures. Featuring old-fashioned allure, the island has a plethora of historical attractions sprinkled across its landscape and is best known for its authentic hawker fare which locals claim can’t be duplicated elsewhere. Georgetown, Penang’s capital, has been granted UNESCO World Heritage status largely due to its collection of 19th and early 20th-century architecture. The island offers plenty of sightseeing opportunities ranging from the ever-popular Gurney Drive to the historic Fort Cornwallis.
