George Town — 3 nights

A kind of architectural playground, George Town is city offering an attractive mix of style, history, and culture.
Cheong Fatt Tze - The Blue Mansion and Kapitan Keling Mosque are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Kek Lok Si Temple and Dharmikarama Burmese Temple. Spend the 27th (Sat) exploring nature at Penang National Park (Taman Negara Pulau Pinang). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Colonial Penang Museum, get engrossed in the history at Pinang Peranakan Mansion, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Reclining Buddha Wat Chaiyamangalaram.

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.
