DISCOVER GEORGETOWN, PENANG

PENANG,
THE PEARL
OF THE ORIENT.

Malaysia's 'Pearl of the Orient' carries a natural beauty and cultural splendour like no other place. Its name comes from the Malay translation of betel nut - 'Pinang'. Every year, thousands of visitors come here to experience the unique cultural heritage and scenery. It is also a very cosmopolitan city, perhaps the second busiest in the country
after Kuala Lumpur.

GEORGETOWN, THE CITY OF ART, HERITAGE AND CULINARY ADVENTURES.

With a long and illustrious history under its belt, Penang’s capital city is one of the most interesting and colourful cities in Malaysia. Given its long history as an international trading port and a British colonial headquarters, it’s little wonder Georgetown has centuries of heritage, food and culture to share.

As acknowledgment of its well-preserved cultural and historical heritage, the city was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on the 7th of July 2008.
