Penang Island
Penang was known, once upon a time, as Pulau Pinang or the “Isle of the Betel Nut”. Listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2008, this virgin paradise has no shortage of cultural sights and natural scenery. Nicknamed the Pearl of the Orient, Penang is famous for its soft sandy beaches and is fondly regarded as the food capital of Malaysia. Some of the most interesting sites of Penang include the sandy beaches, Penang Hill and the Tropical Spice Garden.
  
Day 1 SINGAPORE - PENANG
Depart from Singapore Changi Airport for your flight to Penang Island, under the state of Penang. Penang name comes from the modern Malay name Pulau Pinang, which means "island of the areca nut palm or also known as betel nut". Penang is also fondly known as ‘The Pearl of the Orient’. Penang was discovered by Captain Francis Light and became Britain’s first settlement in Southeast Asia. The British legacy is reflected in the myriad buildings that have been maintained throughout the island as part of our rich history.

ROUND ISLAND DISCOVERY ADD S$40 Adult/ S$30 Child
Duration: 4 hours (9:00 - 13:00)
Penang or “Pulau Pinang” which means "Island of Betelnut Palms" - was once a pirates' hideout. It came under British control in 1786. History has it that Captain Francis Light loaded the cannons with silver coins and fired into the thick undergrowth and the locals scrambled to recover them - thus clearing the area for settlement. Born as a crossroads for traders from Arab to Europe, India to China and nearby islanders, Penang is today a mini Asia in a nutshell! The island still retains its natural charm with quiet sun kissed beaches along the famed Batu Ferringhi strip.
Witness the local Traditional Art of fabric making with the use of wax and dyes. Then drive through the hills where one will enjoy the lush greenery of a tropical rainforest dotted with fruit orchards and spices.
Take a breather at a street stall and be introduced to the many varieties of fruits and spices produced by local farmers. Drive to a valley where there are clusters of traditional Malay villagesand paddy fields, taking you back to basics with a sense of tranquility. Proceed to the centuries oldSnake Temple and learn about its intriguing history before going for a shopping spree at the Coffee Tree, where you can stock up on local products to bring home with you before returning to your hotel.
