Penang offers a wide mix of traditional Malay, Chinese and Indian dishes. Not only that but there is also Peranakan (Baba Nyonya) cuisine, which incorporates regional ingredients and Chinese and Malay cooking methods. The best part is, the foods can all be easily spotted in hawker centres and shophouses throughout the state.

If you think food is the only main attraction in Penang, you might want to think again.

Penang is so much more than just food and architecture. In September 2021, the popular Penang Hill was designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Penang Hill marks the highest point of the state which often attracts people who are in love with hiking. The lovely botanical garden in Penang Hill is also the house of more than 200 species of orchids.
