Air Itam

— 3 nights
Air Itam, a town in Penang just outside of George Town, is renowned for its impressive Buddhist temples and shrines.
Explore hidden gems such as Reclining Buddha Wat Chaiyamangalaram and Kapitan Keling Mosque. Escape the urban bustle at The Habitat Penang Hill and Teluk Bahang Dam. Change things up with these side-trips from Air Itam: Batu Ferringhi (Chin Farm Waterfall & East Wind Watersports). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Pinang Peranakan Mansion, take a stroll through Chulia Street, admire the landmark architecture of Kek Lok Si Temple, and stroll the grounds of Old Protestant Cemetery.

Pearl of the Orient
Penang Island blends historical elements with natural exploration. Long a place of trade between Asian kingdoms and European colonial powers, the island's varied history and cultural influences are seen in a range of historical and cultural sites around its main urban centers, from British forts and factories to Chinese shophouses and narrow market streets. Outside of the towns, the island offers palm-lined beaches, sprawling native jungles, and agricultural land, which is known for providing the island with the fresh produce used in its thriving cuisine.
