ROL Cruise recommends…


1. Tuck into the ‘Food Capital of Asia’

Food lovers will be well catered for in Penang. Its rich and varied menu has been inspired by Malay, Chinese, Nyonya and Indian cuisines throughout the years, so hungry visitors can expect to be wowed by a number of exciting flavours. No wonder it’s been named one of the world’s best places to eat multiple times.


2. Explore Britain’s relationship with Penang at Fort Cornwallis

Throughout Penang’s 150-year relationship with Britain, a lot of impressive buildings were created – well worth a visit if you’ve got an afternoon or more to spare. Fort Cornwallis was the first one to be built during this period, and the Town Hall, the Penang Museum and St George’s Anglican Church are all eye-catching examples of colonial architecture.


3. Have fun at the Penang Toy Museum

No trip to Penang is complete without a visit to the Penang Museum and Art Gallery, which thanks to its range of documents, artworks and relics offers valuable insight into the people and culture of the region. Plus, children of all ages will enjoy a trip to the Penang Toy Museum, which houses the largest collection of toys in the world.


4. Be inspired in George Town

For a modern look at Penang’s culture, George Town is a must-visit. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has a history-rich architecture and also plays host to a collection of Lithuanian street artist Ernest Zacharevic’s contemporary wall murals – ‘Children on a Bicycle’ is particularly popular - as well as humorous wrought iron caricatures dotted around the area.


5. Follow in the footsteps of the stars

With its exciting combination of delicious food, rich heritage and modern culture, it’s no wonder that Penang is so highly regarded by travellers. But did you know that the island has been visited by some of the most famous household names? Dignitaries and stars including Rudyard Kipling, Noel Coward and even HRH Elizabeth II have taken in the sights, so you’ll be in great company!


6.  Feel the sand between your toes

After all that eating and sightseeing you’ll be in need of a rest, and thankfully Penang has a number of beaches which will allow you to do just that. If you’re looking to while away an hour or two with the sand between your toes, check out Tanjung Bungah or Batu Ferringhi – both popular with locals and tourists alike.
