Penang – one of Malaysia’s most popular holiday destinations – isn’t the most physically beautiful island in Asia but it is indelibly fascinating. Branded a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, the Isle of the Beetle Nut has no shortage of cultural sights and natural scenery. Malaysia’s only predominantly-Chinese state is home to a rich polyethnic culture; its landscape is a mixture of jungles, lakes and beaches and its streets feature a collection of colonial era townhouses, temples and tea shops. Local food is one of its top draws but its distinctively unfettered multiracial dynamics are also what make it truly fascinating.
The Penang Free & Easy tour allows you to enjoy the plethora of attractions that the Pearl of the Orient has to offer on your terms; brave the heat and sample its famous fare or simply lounge on the beaches of the wildly-popular Batu Ferringhi. Additionally you can also choose to hoof it and visit the island’s famous historic and cultural attractions including the famous Khoo Khongsi clanhouse, Kek Lo Si temple, Penang Museum and Georgetown.
