Welcome to attend Penang tours! Our English-speaking driver will wait for your arrival at the airport and accompany you to head for Georgetown, the capital of Penang. Before checking in at the hotel, our driver guide will lead you to visit the landmarks in Georgetown.

First, we will visit the Fort Cornwallis from the outside and take some photos. As Captain Francis Light, the founder of Penang Island, landed on Penang from here. It's the best place to learn about the colonial history of Penang.

Then we will drive to the Clan Jetty, passing by the Queen Victoria Memorial Clock Tower. The Clan Jetty is home to a cluster of waterfront wooden houses built on stilts, which are mainly dwelled by Chinese clans. Among the six existing jetties, the Chew Jetty is the most popular.

After spending some time there, we will move to the next stop, the Street of Harmony. Malaysia is a country of diversified culture and religious beliefs. While in the Street of Harmony, you can fully get this point. On this 500-meter-long (550 yards) street, you can find the sites of the four dominating religions in Malaysia, including mosque, Chinese temple, Hindu temple, and church, which were all built about 200 years ago.

The last stop of the first day of our Penang tours is the Blue Mansion, the former residence of Zhang Bishi. It is the largest existing Chinese garden in Southeast Asia.
