Culture, history and food tour in UNESCO World Heritage Site.


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.

Pricing included:
> 4-hour (HALF-DAY) tour guide service + Licensed tour van for 5~12 travelers.

* DIFFERENT VEHICLE OPTION: A luxury MPV (Hyundai Starex) for 6 VIPs is also available for an additional fee.

In case I am no longer available for booking on your date of arrival, please consider my team-mate "Lawrence L. " who is also registered under ToursByLocals.
