The island of Penang has long served as a link between Asian kingdoms, so it has a rich cultural history like no other.
Penang’s capital, George Town, is a thriving hub of old-world scenery. The city was founded by the British in 1786, and there is evidence of this in the architecture of key buildings like the City Hall and the Church of the Assumption.
George Town also houses some ancient buildings that are popular sights for tourists and locals alike. The Blue Mansion was built in the 1880s and blends Eastern and Western designs with its distinctive blue hue.
If you want to venture out of George Town, then a visit to the Penang National Park is a must. Here you’ll be able to trek through some luscious greenery and relax on the beautiful Monkey Beach.
As it is so close to the equator, Penang enjoys a subtropical climate, meaning that the island doesn’t experience summer and winter like in the UK. Instead Penang, like the rest of Malaysia, has a monsoon season from May through to November so it’s best to pack a light raincoat if you’re planning on visiting during these months.
