Penang has long been popular for its hawker fare and street murals dotted across its historic city centre. And the island continues to flourish as chefs and artists breathe life into the creative scene. Celebrate local flavours through fine dining experiences and discover a budding music and literary scene.
Off the beaten track: find yourself whisked away in a limo to catch breathtaking sunset views with family and friends at a private event house on Penang Hill, known only as the “Penang Hill House Experience”. It’s also a great way for solo travellers to make new friends.
Beyond hawker food classics, here’s a list of eclectic cafes and art hubs that play host to live music, cinema screenings, and more.
