Once known as ‘the Pearl of the Orient', Penang is a fascinating fusion of East & West, embracing modernity while still retaining its traditions and old world charm. The capital, Georgetown, (now listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site), is an energetic mixture of English, Chinese and Indian culture and has some fine colonial architecture. Behind the historic promenade and Fort Cornwallis lie busy streets with shops, markets and restaurants selling fresh food from around the world - Penang has long been regarded as one of South East Asia's food capitals. Outside the town lies an island of beaches, fishing villages and green forest-covered hills.
