A kind of architectural playground, George Town is city offering an attractive mix of style, history, and culture.
Step out of George Town to go to Teluk Bahang and see Escape Adventureplay, which is approximately 32 minutes away. Spend the 15th (Sun) exploring nature at Penang National Park (Taman Negara Pulau Pinang). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Kek Lok Si Temple, steep yourself in history at Armenian Street, see the interesting displays at Khoo Kongsi, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Dharmikarama Burmese Temple.
