Air Itam

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 Chin Farm Waterfall. Go for a jaunt from Air Itam to Batu Ferringhi to see East Wind Watersports about 30 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Kek Lok Si Temple, don't miss a visit to Cannon Street, take an in-depth tour of Pinang Peranakan Mansion, and experience rural life at Tropical Fruit Farm.

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.
