Set on the northwest coast of Malaysia, Penang is rapidly becoming a tourist hotspot for adventure travellers who want something a little different. It’s an island packed with culture, consisting of both Malay and other colonial influences. It has plenty of great beaches, but its real draw is the fabulous food you’ll find. Penang is referred to throughout the region as the ‘food paradise’ of Malaysia, so if you want a culinary experience like no other, then this is the destination to choose.


Penang’s capital is George Town – a mishmash of old British colonial buildings and ultra-modern city developments. Its older sections make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so make sure you have your camera with you when you go for a wander around its back streets and alleyways. The air is scented with incense, and trishaws ply their trade along the streets and boulevards of the old quarter.


Holidays to Penang are ideal for couples and groups of friends, although the hotels also cater to families, welcoming younger visitors with typical Malay warmth. Package holidays to Penang with Qatar Airways Holidays will introduce you to a location that’s filled with colour, passion, and fabulous flavours.
