Tour Details

Spend the day in the capital city of Penang and watch history come alive as you wander the streets of one of the oldest cities in Malaysia. Stop at Fort Cornwallis and take a photo of the antique cannons decorating the massive fort walls. At Penang Museum learn about the colorful history of the Straits Settlements including their use as penal communities by the East India Company traders.

Peruse the priceless antiques and artifacts at Peranakan Mansion, where you will gain an appreciation for the cultural assimilation between Malays and the early Chinese settlers. While in the area check out the various murals depicting the simple Penang lifestyle that dress up the streets. Pause at Old Protestant Cemetery on your way back to port. Thought by many to be one of the oldest cemeteries in existence, this burial ground with about 500 graves is where Captain Francis Light, Penang's founder, was laid to rest.

Book this private tour now for an informative and photographic look at early life in Penang.

Please Note: On Fridays, the Penang Museum is closed, and the extra time will be reallocated to the other attractions.
