Penang Travel Guide

Where is Penang?

Can't wait to tick Penang off your world map?

It's a neighborhood of Penang. You'll find it 0.1 miles south of the downtown area.

Places to Visit in Penang

Just a stroll away are Fort Cornwallis and the Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi. They're great ways to spend your day.

Explore the carefully maintained rooms and try to imagine how the inhabitants of Pinang Peranakan Mansion once lived. This place gives its visitors a rare historical insight. Need more nearby options? Camera Museum is an excellent spot to explore when it's wet and gloomy outside. But wait, there's still more to see and do. Find some serenity among the calming atmosphere of Sri Mariamman Temple.

Car Rentals in Penang

How about discovering the region your own way? Be the creator of your own adventure by checking out car rentals in Penang with a little help from Orbitz.

Picking up a rental straight from Penang International Airport means you'll be off the runway and onto the highway in the blink of an eye. You'll find Avis a few minutes away from the arrivals hall. Europcar is another good choice.

Where to stay in Penang – Hotel Accommodation

With no less than 226 hotels in Penang, you won't have any problems finding a place to crash. Lock in a cozy room and start organizing the more exciting stuff!

If something a bit indulgent is what you're dying for, slip between the soft sheets at the Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang or the Eastern And Oriental Hotel. Alternatively, look into the Heritage Sixteen (16 Lebuh Cranarvon) or the Wil House (50 & 52, Lebuh Leith) if you're traveling on a stricter budget.
