  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview Georgetown is the capital of Penang and is often referred to as Penang. Penang is an island and is also the second smallest state in Malaysia. The city offers memorable sights and sounds and activities. It is the oldest British settlement in Malaysia.


    This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and convenience to do the tour at your own pace.

    This Scenic Tour of Georgetown, Snake Temple and Penang Island around the outskirts of Georgetown will take you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You will see the actual process of batik making and other cottage industries.

    Visit a batik factory and get a behind-the-scenes look at how local artists create these intricate masterpieces. Then, continue on to the street market for an introduction to some of local and regional fruits. Later, visit the snake temple where a host of slithery creatures are on display. Pause for a refreshing coconut juice before visiting the Coffee Tree shop where you can browse and sample some of the beloved coffee products of the region, including the famous Penang white coffee.

    After a tour of this interesting and fascinating island you will be taken back to your hotel where your tour ends.
