Meet a driver at your Penang hotel for 8:30am departure, then travel to George Town, Penang’s vibrant capital city. Upon arrival in George Town, start your walking tour, following a specially-designed route to the city’s highlights.
Walk to the State Assembly building, then follow the “Street of Harmony,” where a wide range of religious sites and devotees line up side by side. You’ll see the rooflines of the Chinese society houses, and stop at a series of religious buildings, including St. George’s Church, the Goddess of Mercy Temple, Sri Mariamman Temple, and Kapitan Keling Mosque, a 19th-century landmark built by Indian Muslims.
