Penang, also known as the “Pearl of the Orient,” is a sparkling gem in Malaysia’s crown. Situated on the northwest coast of the Malay Peninsula, Penang is an island that seamlessly blends its rich history, cultural diversity, natural beauty, and delicious cuisine. Here are some interesting facts:

Its old town has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its colonial architecture, narrow streets, and a unique blend of Chinese, Malay, and Indian architectural styles. You can walk through streets adorned with colourful street art murals that tell fascinating stories.

😇 Impressive Temples and Shrines: Penang hosts a plethora of temples and religious shrines, such as the Kek Lok Si Temple, one of the largest in Asia. Its giant bronze statue of the goddess of mercy, Kuan Yin, is breathtaking. The Sri Mahamariamman Temple is also an architectural gem of Hindu heritage.
