Penang as classy name

Sightseeing chillout time

The Malaysian state of Penang is made up of an island and a peninsula connected to each other by the country’s two longest bridges. Due to its colonial architecture; its relation to WWII; and its numerous green spaces, which include everything from formal botanical gardens to tropical jungles, George Town, the capital of Penang, has become a major tourist destination in Malaysia. Parts of George Town were also listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. See our list of top tourist attractions in Penang if you’re looking for ideas about how to spend your time once you get to Pulau Pinang.

Though I have been go to Penang with my kids for quite some times in the past, I still do not visit some of the places as I do not even know its existence. I will pay them a visit next time, for sure!
