A kind of architectural playground, George Town is city offering an attractive mix of style, history, and culture.
Get out of town with these interesting George Town side-trips: Teluk Bahang (Escape Theme Park & Kerachut Beach), Tropical Fruit Farm (in Batu Ferringhi) and Bayan Lepas (Aquarium of Fisheries Research Institute & Penang Golf Club). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kek Lok Si Temple, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, appreciate the extensive heritage of Armenian Street, and examine the collection at Khoo Kongsi.

For where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the George Town online tour itinerary maker.

Perth, Australia to George Town is an approximately 10.5- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and ferry; or do a combination of bus, flight, taxi, and train. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Perth to George Town due to the time zone difference.
