A legacy of the British era and food fusion
Since the British first settled here, they had always yearn for respite from the depressing heat, thus they set sight on the highest peak in Penang i. e. Penang Hill. They built a railway up the hill and bungalows for retreat during weekend. Experience the smooth 10 minutes ride up the hill amid lush greenery. See view of George Town and Butterworth from atop, Hindu temple, Love Lock, etc.
A visit to George Town's heritage enclave - heritage houses, clan houses and living heritage to understand why this city, together with Malacca were inscribed into UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2008. Understand George Town's diverse multi-racial cultures, their living styles, past and present, that live harmoniously side by side of each other along the same street.
Enjoy some fusion foods of east meet west meet south - sample on famous and mouth watering Char Kway Teow, Hokkein Mee, Curry Mee, Satay, Pancake, Porridge, Laksa, etc. Take back packets of Tau Sar Pneah to delight friends, colleagues and loved ones.
