Thanks to its history as a spice trading port, Penang is arguably the food capital of Malaysia. In the ‘Pearl of the Orient’ you’ll experience mouthwatering dishes that carry influences of Chinese, Thai and Indonesian cuisine. Walk it off through the winding streets of Georgetown, Penang’s colonial capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The island is best weather wise from November to April as during the summer months there is higher rainfall and increased sea swells are visible. The island is reached by 60 minute flight from Kuala Lumpur.
