Malaysia Penang

George Town

A vibrant UNESCO World Heritage site, known for its well-preserved colonial architecture, multicultural heritage, and street food in Malaysia.

Tips from the community

Few cities on the planet can match the sheer multiculturalism of George Town. One moment you’ll be transported to the spice-scented streets of Jaipur as you dodge the Bollywood CD emporiums and smell Rajput curries in Little India. The next, you’ll see Peking duck and hairy crab being cooked up in the steamy kitchens of Chinatown. Or, you’ll meet ancient clan people on the rickety Jetties of Penang. If you’re short on time, head up the funicular to Penang Hill for 360-degree views of the whole island.

Penang is home to some of the most delicious cuisine I've ever tasted. Doing a food tour is a must! Plus, there's ton of fun street art around the city.
