Malaysia Georgetown Historical

Georgetown & Penang Island


The state of Penang lies at the crossroad of Asia’s major civilizations, and has sparked visitors' imaginations for centuries. From grand architecture, non-stop shopping, and mouth-watering cuisine, Penang is an authentic taste of the real Asia, where laid-back charm is woven into a tapestry of culture, heritage and natural beauty.

A perfect blend of East and West, Penang has accepted modernity gracefully while maintaining the heritage and tradition, especially in Georgetown’s World Heritage listed colonial quarter. Penang may be the second smallest state in the country, but it has it all: rich history, fun beaches, beautiful resorts, beautiful nature, diverse culture and arguably the most delicious food.

Every year, thousands of visitors come here to experience the unique cultural heritage at and scenery. It is also a very cosmopolitan city, perhaps the second busiest in the country after Kuala Lumpur.
