Itinerary
Day 1 - SINGAPORE - PENANG (Meals on board)

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.

This morning, free at leisure to explore the island or laze around on the beach or join some optional tours.

Day 3 - PENANG - SINGAPORE (Breakfast in Hotel)

  • 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.
