Penang Half-Day Tour

Penang City Tours

  • Penang is a Malaysian island that is often overlooked due to its superstar West Coast cousins. Most Malaysians will laud its gastronomic offerings as well as the retail bargains to be had from street-side vendors.

    The ‘Pearl of the Orient’ is also home to more than its fair share of sightseeing attractions. Once colonized by the British, the island is a mixture of Chinese store fronts and British-era structures. The Penang Half-Day Tour takes you on a journey to visit some of its key attractions; start out the day with a visit to Khoo Kongsi –a clan house for ethnic Chinese from the Khoo family which also doubles as a temple.

    Next head on over to the Wat Chayamangkalaram Temple – a Thai temple that is home to a 33-metre long reclining Buddha, one of the largest in the world. Later the tour continues on to the Botanical Gardens before a stopover at a pewter factory where you can see how this popular alloy is fashioned into the authentic and popular pewter products.
