Exploring Penang

With its diverse mix of cultures, eclectic cuisine and beach-city status, Penang is a microcosm of Malaysia. Travelers who desire to experience Malaysia but have little time to tour the country, can take a wide angle shot of the country in Penang. Penang is a turtle shaped island, situated around 8kms from mainland Malaysia. Georgetown, the main city on the island, has begun to spread eastwards. The north coast of the island is already highly developed, with many popular beach resorts dotted along its shore.


The island is multifaceted; historic buildings, temples and mosques are juxtaposed with modern developments in the city, while the coast is home to a crop of luxury resorts and sleepy fishing villages. Penang has an interesting heritage and was once one of the three British Straits Settlements, along with Singapore and Malacca. Penang is Malaysia's most densely populated state, and is unique in that ethnic Chinese are the majority.

Sightseeing in Penang

- Georgetown


Georgetown was originally a Brisith settlement. You will find that the architecture of this area has a mix of both Eastern and European history. There are many attractions to see in this area. Shopping is also popular, with the Kompleks Komtar shopping center. Other must see sights include the Kek Lok Si temple and Fort Cornwallis.


- Penang Hill


The Penang Hill Funicular ride lifts visitors above the stifling heat and humidity of the coastal plain to a cool, breezy hilltop haven. At the top, beautiful gardens, charming mansions and a Hindu temple add to the incredible panorama. Visitors can take the Transit Link bus number 1, 101, 351 or 361 to Air Itam. The funicular ascends every 30 minutes.


Transportation in Penang

Public transport in Penang is very poor, and visitors are often left feeling frustrated by the system. The bus service on the island is unreliable and taxi drivers often refuse to turn on their meter, leaving travelers lost and confused.


Georgetown is best explored on foot, especially during the morning before the heat sets in. Arranging transport to other areas can be very challenging. RapidPenang is the government's attempt at improving the situation, and although the vehicles are more comfortable, services are infrequent.
