Visit 'Malaysia's Silicon Valley'

George Town is the capital of the 28-square kilometre island and sliver of mainland Malyasian peninsula, sporting a mixture of pre-war houses, colonial buildings, mazes of alleyways, churches and mosques. The nearby beautiful Kek Lok Si Temple pagoda is worth a visit and you'll see fine views of the region atop Penang Hill. George Town hotels include budget stays and restored Edwardian Anglo Malay mansions.

The northern beaches around Batu Ferringhi and Teluk Bahang (with all their watersports) steal the hearts of many. On this part of the island, the pasar malam (night market) stocks cheap food, jewellery, handicrafts and clothes and is a pleasant nocturnal diversion from sun and sea. When your appetite flares, wherever you are in Penang, you'll find the hallmarks of Nyonya, Chinese, Indian and Malay-style cooking. Hawker (street stall) fare is particularly tasty.
