Top Tourist Spots in Penang
George Town has been named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the rich architectural legacy that has been left from the colonial period. This includes a lot of the former administrative buildings and the Governor's House. In addition there are examples of architecture from the Chinese, Indian, Malay, Burmese and Siamese populations that have contributed to Penang's glorious cultural diversity.
The diverse cultures of Penang have helped to give the area an exceptionally vibrant food scene. This is centred on Gurney Drive, with its huge selection of street food stalls and eateries.
Nature lovers in Penang can take advantage of the national park and the Botanical Gardens, each of which have an interesting collection of flora and fauna.
