By George that’s a quality place

George Town is the capital of Penang and has a large amount of historic and cultural sites that are perfect for teaching you about the area’s colourful past. Wander around the city to some of the highlights such as the 19th-Century Fort Cornwallis, Queen Victoria Clock Tower and the Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple. There are also numerous museums, restaurants and shops.

George Town has a range of accommodation that caters to all types of travellers, whether you’ve got a strict budget or are looking to splurge. Award-winning hotels such as the Seven Terraces, Yeng Keng, Museum, Macalister Mansion and the Traders Hotel ensure you experience exceptional service and facilities.

Plenty of beach and attractions on Batu Ferringhi

Batu Ferringhi is located on the northern coast of Penang and has been built up into one of the country’s most developed beach areas. Don’t worry; there is still white sand, palm trees and inviting water to enjoy. However, you’ll also be entertained by a butterfly farm, toy museum, shopping at markets and treks through the jungle.

The beachside resorts and hotels on Batu Ferringhi don’t hold back when it comes to their guests, providing all the facilities you need for an enjoyable holiday. Whether you choose to stay at the Bayview Beach, Flamingo by the Beach, Golden Sands, Hard Rock or Holiday Inn, you’ll want to relive your time there over and over again.

Access the city and beach in Tanjung Bungah

Sitting on the north coast, not far from Penang’s capital city of George Town, Tanjung Bungah gives you beautiful beaches along with a convenient proximity to all the exciting happenings in the city. Staying in this quiet area, you’ll be able to truly relax while lounging at the beach. Visit its two most interesting attractions: the Floating Mosque and Toy Museum.

Tanjung Bungah is less popular than its neighbouring beachside town, Batu Ferringhi, so the cost of accommodation is significantly reduced. There are great places to stay such as the Four Points, Rainbow Paradise Resort and the Flamingo Hotel, which are located right on the water.
