Get to know Penang with Viator

A cultural and geographical melting pot, Penang Island is a rich tapestry of lush rainforest, white-sand beaches, and wildlife reserves, peppered with temples and bustling colonial towns. The palm-fringed coast along the Strait of Malacca is popular as a respite from the balmy heat, but travelers also enjoy the island's hillside tea and fruit plantations, vibrant festivals, and diverse (and delicious) street food.
