Published on

Thanks to an influx of private and public investment and creative energy — precipitated in part by Unesco’s 2008 listing of Penang’s capital city, George Town, as a World Heritage site — the Malaysian island is padding out its list of attractions. To the region’s best street food add smart restaurants and bars. Along with a lively street culture anchored in religious festivals

36 hours in Penang, Malaysia

  1. 1. 36 Hours in Penang, Malaysia
  2. 2. Day 1 Penang Botanic Gardens George Town The 30-hectare Botanical Gardens are also known as the Waterfall Gardens, after the stream that cascades down from Penang Hill. They’ve also been dubbed the Monkey Gardens for the many long-tailed macaques that scamper around. Don’t be tempted to feed them; monkeys do bite, a ...
  3. 3. Day 1 Padang Kota Lama George Town The Padang field is the venue for most of the island's important events, such as the Chingay Parade during the Lunar New Year. In the old days, sepoy regiments used it for target practice and the Manila Band played from a bandstand from 1890 to 1954. Portions of the Padang's expa ...
  4. 4. Day 1 Fort Cornwallis George Town View this itinerary on mygola.com, explore more details about this trip. You can create your custom plan from this itinerary and book. http://www.mygola.com/36-hours-in-penang-malaysia/i412 For all its size, Fort Cornwallis isn’t particularly impressive; only the outer walls stand, enclosing a pleasant park within. The star-shaped structure houses some vaguely informative exhibits, a poor Malaysian man is made to stand in full British colonial uniform at the gate ...
  5. 5. Day 1 China House George Town Penang has no stortage of historic architecture, but so far, it's been lacking in spaces devoted to contemporary culture. Enter China House, the newest venture from hotelier Narelle McMurtrie of Bon Ton and Temple Tree Langkawi fame. Occupying three pre-World War II buildings str ...
  6. 6. Day 2 Aik Hoe George Town Scarred with a rustic, nostalgic charm, Aik Hoe, its apparent popularity notwithstanding, has yet to succumb to revamping its outlet. Much less a business move from a budgeting perspective, it’s, rather, a conscious effort in refusing to unhinge the welding of sitting on metal ...
  7. 7. Day 2 Penang Heritage Trust George Town The Trust was formed in 1986 to champion the preservation and restoration of heritage architecture and sights. Projects include the conservation of Suffolk House, the Protestant Cemetery and the Carpenter's Guild. It also organizes guided heritage walking tours, an annual antique ...

  14. 14. Day 2 That Little Wine Bar George Town That Little Wine Bar restaurant is proving that Penang’s reputation as the country’s premier destination for good food need not be confined to a roll call of hawker fare. Sophisticated yet inviting, locals just call it TLWB. Set on the quiet side street of Chow Thye, it comes ...
  15. 15. Day 2 Love Lane Inn George Town Run by affable Jimmy who is a quite a character, the Love Lane Inn offers free WiFi and reasonable budget rooms — though go for an upstairs room as the downstairs ones are pretty dark.
