WELCOME TO AN ISLAND PARADISE FOR AN ULTIMATE GETAWAY
Officially inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, George Town in Penang is home to Eastern and Western influences coupled with timeless architectural styles that are reflected in over 12,000 old buildings across the town. These residential and commercial buildings comprise quaint shophouses, majestic mosques & churches, incredible monuments and government offices. This World Heritage Site is a delightful destination that can be discovered on foot, bicycle, trishaw or part of a guided tour.
Its unique townscape can be attributed to its fusion of various cultural elements from the Malay Archipelago, India, China and Europe. It also serves as an excellent living testimony to the multi-cultural heritage and tradition of Asia as well as European colonial influences. The capital’s religious buildings of different faiths, ethnic quarters, languages, festivals and food represent its colourful heritage.
