Penang cuisine is famous the world over for its incredible variety, cultural influences and quality. Asia’s great culinary traditions live on in Penang’s coffee shops, hip cafes and fine dining establishments.
Penang is a tropical paradise that not only boasts beautiful beaches and lush rainforests, but also the UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town. Centuries of heritage, gorgeous colonial and pre-war architecture, an active arts and festivals scene, world famous gastronomic culture is all juxtaposed against the backdrop of an international city.
George Town was awarded a UNESCO heritage site status in 2008 as a living museum, as it represents the most complete surviving historic city centre in Asia with a multi-cultural living heritage originating from its trade routes.
