Foodies take note! Penang is the food capital of Malaysia and as such it’s up to you to keep up with Penangites and eat around the clock. Boasting an extraordinary culturally diverse cuisine with Chinese, Indian, Malay, Thai and Western influences, Penang is a gourmet paradise. Spend the day shopping for local ingredients, learning how to cook Malay dishes and sampling the delicious dishes at hawker food centres.
Walk all that good food off on a guided walking tour organised by Penang Heritage Trust. Take the cable car up Penang Hill for panoramic views of the island and a sneaky peak at some of the country’s grandest colonial mansions. And if there’s time left, visit one of Penang’s modern shopping malls, including Queensbay Mall, Gurney Plaza AND 1ST Avenue Penang.
