About Your Trip

Journey to Penang Island and discover some of Malaysia’s oldest and most culturally significant landmarks on this illuminating DreamTrip. Start your full-day tour at Entopia® by Penang Butterfly Farm — get up close to free-flying butterflies or explore the interesting learning center. Then kick back and experience a trishaw ride. At the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, marvel at the antiques and collectibles owned by a rich Baba more than a hundred years ago. Before a Peranakan-influenced lunch, take a cable-car ride to Penang Hill and savor panoramic views of the city, bridges and Malaysian mainland.

Get your cameras ready the next day for a half-day tour of other top sites, starting at the Dhammikarama Burmese Temple in George Town. Take in the abundance of statues, the landscaped gardens and the stunning tall bell tower. At the Thai temple of Wat Chayamangkalaram, be sure to see the impressive gold-plated Reclining Buddha statue. Then, stop at Penang Bridge and Fort Cornwallis for photos. Before the day is over, pose with multidimensional murals and enjoy miniature scenes of Penang life at the 3D Trick Art Museum. Enjoy your leisure time and further explore the city on your own.

What we love:
• Trishaws, a popular mode of transportation, are often lavishly decorated to draw the attention of tourists.
• Themed heritage walking tours available throughout George Town allow visitors to explore the city’s culture and history at their own pace — try the Food Trail or Heritage Building Trail.
• Thanks to well-preserved buildings, the capital city of George Town is designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
