Kuala Lumpur, Melaka & Penang - Penang (Chapter)
This is the Penang chapter from Lonely Planet’s Kuala Lumpur, Melaka & Penang guidebook.
‘Pearl of the Orient’ - trishaws, ornate temples and gold-embroidered saris displayed in shop windows next to mosques sending a call to the midday prayer - whatever Penang’s nickname conjures chances are that Penang is that reality. Add slick cafes, shopping malls, jungles and white beaches and you’ll have an even sharper image.
- dine on the fabulous array of hawker food
- explore the outrageously ornate Khoo Kongsi
- restaurants & accommodation
- hike through jungles to monkey beaches at Penang National Park
