One exceptional place to visit on Malaysia vacations is Penang Island, the most populated island in Malaysia located in the state of Penang, off the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia and the fourth largest in size, measuring 285 sq. km (177 sq. miles).

As the oldest British settlement in Malaysia, Penang Island features a rich multicultural blend of Chinese, Malay, Indian, and European influences, and is considered the ‘food paradise of Malaysia.

Penang Island’s northern coast features the city of Batu Ferringhi, where its white sandy beaches and luxurious hotels make Penang Island a premier resort destination on a Malaysia tour.

Georgetown, Penang’s state capital, is situated on Penang Island and features many colonial buildings, 19th-century churches, temples, mosques, and Fort Cornwallis, the largest fort in Malaysia. A major tourist attraction on Malaysia tours, Georgetown is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Penang Hill, situated 830metres (2722 ft) above Georgetown and featuring pleasant gardens, a hotel, a Hindu temple and a mosque, offers great views of Georgetown’s twinkling city lights.

Penang Island features various cities, all offering their own unique attractions, including an array of water and land activities, scenic gardens, temples, markets, cuisine, shopping, and festivals. With its warm, tropical climate, Penang Island is a destination offering something for everyone on a Malaysia vacation.
