Towel Rental & Toiletries
KOMTAR (Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak) was named in honour of the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, the late Tun Abdul Razak bin Hussein. When this skyscraper topped out, (reached full height during construction phase of 232 metres or 761 feet) it was the tallest building in Asia.
Fort Cornwallis, named after the Governor-General in Bengal in the late 1700s, Charles Cornwallis, is one of the most interesting historical landmarks in George Town. It is located close to the Esplanade, next to the Victoria Memorial Clock.
Kek Lok Si Temple
The Kek Lok Si Temple is a Buddhist temple situated in Air Itam in Penang and is one of the best known temples on the island. The construction of the temple began in 1893 and was inspired by the chief monk of the Goddess of Mercy Temple at Pitt Street. In 1930, the seven storey main pagoda of the temple or the Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas, was completed. This pagoda combines a Chinese octagonal base with a middle tier of Thai design, and a Burmese crown; reflecting the temple's embrace of both Mahayana and Theravada Buddhism. Two structures dominate the scenery, especially when the temple is seen from afar. One is the seven storey pagoda which dates from the temple's founding. The other is a huge bronze statue of the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin -- a popular diety in Penang.
Kuan Yin Temple (Goddess of Mercy Temple)
The Kuan Yin Temple was built in the 1800s by early Chinese settlers of the Hokkien and Cantonese communities. The temple was originally named Kong Hock Keong temple (Cantonese-Hokkien Temple) and was once used not only for religious but also for social functions within the Chinese community. However, the temple lost some of its importance when the current Chinese Town Hall was constructed in the 1880s.
Kapitan Keling Mosque
The Kapitan Keling Mosque was first erected by the troops of the East India Company who were some of Penang's first Muslim settlers, in the late 1700s. Several years later, the growing Indian Muslim community required a more permanent mosque. In 1801, the community, led by their leader, Cauder Mydin Merican or also referred to as 'Kapitan Keling', was granted with an 18-acre lot. Made of brick, the original mosque was a single-storey structure, but over the years, the mosque has seen plenty of renovation works.
Sri Mariamman Temple
In the heart of Little India in George Town, on the corner of Lebuh Chulia and Lebuh Queen, lies the Sri Mariamman Temple. Sri Mariamman is the oldest and, arguably, most famous Hindu temple in Malaysia.
Decorated in the colourful and distinct style of South Indian architecture, the temple is adorned with nearly 40 statuettes of Hindu Gods, Goddesses and sacred animals. Many of the statuettes are mounted on the impressive facade of the temple which rises over 23 feet high.
Tropical Spice Garden
Opened on 27 November 2003, TROPICAL SPICE GARDEN is an agrotourism project showcasing over 500 varieties of exotic and endemic tropical flora, particularly spices, spread over eight acres of secondary jungle. This project is endorsed by the Penang State Government and privately funded by Bertam Consolidated Rubber Co. Ltd., a company involved in palm oil estates in Malaysia. The main focus of the Garden is to create awareness of the natural environment and the importance of plants through its vital programmes of conservation, education and research.
Batu Ferringhi, situated along the coastal road north-west of George Town and lined with a string of international-standard resorts, is the most popular beach in Penang.
Soak in the sun or unwind on the beach while you enjoy a host of aquatic thrills from wind-surfing to canoeing. For a spine-tingling adventure, try parasailing to enjoy the view of the beach from the sky.
On Penang Hill you can escape the heat of tropical George Town. The hill, also known as Bukit Bendera, is 830 meter high (2,750 foot) and it's much cooler than in the city below. It's about 3 degrees cooler than the places near the coast.
The station to get to the top is located in Air Itam. From George Town, take a Transit Link bus No 1, or No 101, or Lim Seng bus No 91, or minibus No 21 from Lebuh Chulia to the Air Itam Terminal. Penang Hill has a population of about 1000 locals.
