Relish the captivating allure of George Town, the capital and largest city of Penang. On this culturally enriching Penang shore excursion, you'll comfortably travel in an air-conditioned vehicle with a professional guide through scenic streets, observe a world-famous reclining golden Buddha statue, and absorb all the stunning historical cultural variety Penang has to offer. This George Town guided tour is ideal for anyone looking to experience a beautiful array of cultural venues, buildings, and historical information for a low price.

George Town has been labeled a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unique architectural and cultural townscape unparalleled anywhere in East Asia. Your guided tour begins with a visit to a Thai temple, where you'll want to take photographs of the incredibly decorative and colorful entrances. Inside the temple, witness the grandeur of a gold-plated reclining Buddha measuring over 100 feet in length. Photographs are allowed inside the temple, but make sure to remove your shoes before entering.

Your expert guide will then take you to the Peranakan Mansion, a beautiful home to priceless antique collections of artifacts. These fascinating items depict the assimilation of cultures between the Malays and early Chinese settlers. Afterward, you'll visit the majestic Khoo Kongsi, the most beautiful Chinese Clan House outside of China. Following a scenic drive through popular cultural spots, you'll see Little India, home to the oldest Hindu temple in Penang, and Chinatown, a bustling street full of distinctive stalls and shops. Time will be provided to shop for fantastic souvenirs that friends and family will love.

Wow what a great day! Georgetown is a lively and varied place, and in a few short hours our driver, navigated us to 4 different sites, and through a scenic tour of the city. He was friendly and knowledgeable, and a good driver.

Reviewer: Jack Landau
This was a really good tour through George Town that was not expensive. The Thai temple was fine, but the really interesting aspects were the Peranakan Mansion and the Khoo Kongsi clan house -- a great insight into past life here.

Reviewer: Ka Wah Chan
Meeting point was confusing, other tour groups met in the pier area, ours were outside. Some guests nearly joined the wrong tour. Guide courteous and knowledgeable, although lacks confidence (in his English) initially, he later warmed up and the trip was quite pleasant. Many spots included in itinerary with fairly short time. Car was comfortable.
