Kek Lok Si Temple at Georgetown Penang, Malaysia

Penang Island, off Malaysia’s west coast, is the oldest British settlement in Malaysia and one of the country’s major resorts. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, Georgetown boasts an incredible skyline and architecture inspired by traditional Chinese culture. Compact and easy to navigate with plenty to see and do, the city is a joy to explore.

Situated on the northeast coast, this city has lots of Chinese flavour and abounds in ‘old world’ charm. Georgetown is relatively compact and easy to wander round.

At the centre of the city is Fort Cornwallis, constructed by the British in the 18th century. Within the walls of the fort is a remarkable cannon called Seri Rambai.

Georgetown boasts a beautiful skyline with Kek Lok Si Temple high in the leafy mountains and rolling hills of the island vegetation.
