Discover the heritage of Georgetown and understand the history behind the colonial buildings and bustling streets. Visit the many historical buildings and pass by the Street of Harmony, Little India and Chinatown.

Start your tour of Penang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and drop by Fort Cornwallis for photo stop. Built in 1808, this is the recorded area where the founder of Penang, Sir Francis Light, first landed on the island.

Continue on past the Queen Victoria Memorial Clock Tower and proceed to the waterfront where you'll get a chance to walk along the Clan Jetty, where houses are built on stilts. Drive by the Street of Harmony and marvel at the architecture of the Anglican Church, Kuan Yin Chinese Temple, Mahamariamman Indian Temple and the Kapitan Keling Mosque.

Next, be taken back in time to Penang’s colonial past at the Colonial Penang Museum and get a glimpse of both the British Administrators and wealthy merchants’ lifestyle in Penang. Stop for a little retail therapy of local products at the Cocoa Boutique.

Last but not least, take some pictures of the third-largest reclining Buddha statue at the Wat Chayamangkalaram temple. End your day with a comfortable ride back to your hotel.
