A kind of architectural playground, George Town is city offering an attractive mix of style, history, and culture.
Do your shopping at Hin Bus Depot and Gurney Plaza. Family-friendly places like Tech Dome Penang and Monkey Beach will thrill your kids. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Asia Camera Museum, steep yourself in history at Chulia Street, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Arulmigu Balathandayuthapani Temple, and admire the landmark architecture of Kek Lok Si Temple.

Melbourne, Australia to George Town is an approximately 13- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of flight and ferry. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) to Western Indonesia Time (WIB), which is usually a -3 hour difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Melbourne in March, with highs in George Town at 38°C and lows at 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
