Culture and history tour in UNESCO World Heritage Site. TOUR VAN included.

In 2008, George Town was awarded the UNESCO World Heritage Site listing. This maritime-trading city was developed during the colonial era and are older than most cities in Malaysia. As a result, it has retained a unique cityscape and multicultural heritage.

George Town represents exceptional examples of multi-cultural trading towns in East and Southeast Asia. It is a living testimony to the multi-cultural heritage and tradition of Asia, and European colonial influences. A mixture of unique architecture, culture and townscape was also created without parallel anywhere in East and South Asia.

A Recent Review of this tour

Lawrence was fantastic as our guide. Extremely knowledgeable, covered absolutely everything. Very well prepared (before and during the tour) and offered us plenty of options for the day. Also great with time keeping as we had to be back on board our cruise ship by 4pm. Really made the day as smooth as possible. We were all very happy and highly recommend Lawrence to anyone visiting Penang.
