Holidays to Penang

Penang is located on the northwest coast of Malaysia, divided by the Strait of Malacca. A hub for trade in the past, it was colonised in the 18th century by the British, with its capital of George Town named for King George III. It is remarkably varied in its influences; reflected not only in its multicultural population, but the architecture, food, and cosmopolitan attitude. With its equatorial climate, tropical rainforest, coastline and fascinating capital city, this is a wonderful place to visit any time of the year. Holidays to Penang can include anything from street art and architectural tours in George Town, to visiting a tropical spice garden, or trekking through Penang National Park to reach secluded beaches where monkeys scamper and turtles hatch. This is also the best foodie destination in Malaysia so you're sure not to go hungry on your Penang holiday.
