George Town — 13 nights

A kind of architectural playground, George Town is city offering an attractive mix of style, history, and culture.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Danai Spa at Tanjung Bungah Penang and Wonderfood Museum Penang. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Han Jiang Ancestral Temple and Old Protestant Cemetery. Explore George Town's surroundings by going to Ipoh (Kong Heng Square, Sam Poh Tong Cave Temple, &more), Snake Temple (in Bayan Lepas) and Alor Setar (Rumah Kelahiran Mahathir & Wat Nikrodharam). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Penang House of Music, stop by Penang, contemplate the long history of Cheah Kongsi, and buy something for everyone on your list at Gurney Plaza.

Pearl of the Orient
Penang Island blends historical elements with natural exploration. Long a place of trade between Asian kingdoms and European colonial powers, the island's varied history and cultural influences are seen in a range of historical and cultural sites around its main urban centers, from British forts and factories to Chinese shophouses and narrow market streets. Outside of the towns, the island offers palm-lined beaches, sprawling native jungles, and agricultural land, which is known for providing the island with the fresh produce used in its thriving cuisine.
