Destinations / Malaysia / Penang
The ‘Silicon Valley’ of Malaysia, the high-tech world of Penang is not obvious to the casual tourist. When you leave the hubbub and heat of the capital, Georgetown, you'll discover the gorgeous beach resorts of Batu Ferringhi and Tanjung Bunga 30 minutes away. On your holiday in Penang, relax in one of the luxury beach-front hotels. During the day, sunbathing, para-sailing and snorkelling are popular pursuits, and when the sun goes down, the legendary night markets, excellent restaurants and laid-back beach bars are right on your doorstep.
A land with a rich oriental heritage, Penang has a wealth of stunning temples like the Arulmigu Karumariamman, ancient monuments, lush forests and orchid gardens to explore. The sleepy Malay fishing village of Teluk Bahang, famous for its fresh seafood, offers a quiet retreat from the busier. It's also a gateway to nearby Penang National Park, home to an array of exotic wildlife like dusky leaf monkeys, bellied sea eagles, monitor lizards and the long-tailed macaque.
