About Penang (Pulau Pinang), Malaysia

The swirl of Batik in eastern bazaars, the cascade of waterfalls in the Botanical Gardens, jungle-clad hills ringed by golden beaches, these are the images you will take from Penang. This lovely resort island and its bustling capital of Georgetown are the picture of Malaysian diversity. Visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and Kek Lok Si, one of the most beautiful temples in Southeast Asia. See the ornate Khoo Kongsi, and old Chinese clan house; and an 18th century British fortress. Enjoy the Chinese embroidery and Malay daggers in the Penang Museum, or marvel at the Penang Bridge (third longest in the world).

nothing at the port but a taxi will take you shopping but not very exciting and certainly not the cheapest in Asia

Had a VERY VERY BAD experience with Shore Excursion. We immediately complained after our trip but damage already done. You are better off organising and taking your own trip

Don't do the shuttle to the mall in Penang. It was dirty and scary. And was gonna walk around the surrounding area but it felt really sketchy. Do the batu excursion instead I heard better reviews.
