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 Spas & Wellness and East Wind Watersports. Escape the urban bustle at The Habitat Penang Hill and Teluk Bahang Dam. Go for a jaunt from Air Itam to Batu Ferringhi to see Chin Farm Waterfall about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Pinang Peranakan Mansion, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kapitan Keling Mosque, admire the striking features of Kek Lok Si Temple, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Old Protestant Cemetery.

For traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Air Itam itinerary planner.

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.
