Penang is a reputable tourist destination not only with International travellers but also with local Malaysians. Once a pretty laid back town, Penang has, since attaining UNESCO Heritage Listed City status, emerged as a hipster town with trendy cafes and bars co-existing with street vendors and old-style coffee shops serving renowned street food.
Penang is now solidly on the world map attracting a lot of tourists throughout the year and touted as one of Asia’s best places for retirees. Famed for our street food culture and affordability, Penang is also home to The Penang Island Jazz Festival & Georgetown Heritage Festival which attracts an international patronage.
