Penang is a popular tourist destination in Malaysia and its capital Georgetown is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A fusion of different people, cultures and traditions, Georgetown used to be a major trading hub in the Straits of Malacca. The city was known for its colorful architecture, combining British colonial buildings, Chinese shophouses and mosques. In just four hours, you will get to see some of the best sights Georgetown has to offer and what makes it a truly unique city that cannot be found anywhere else in Asia.
Have a great time exploring Penang, even if you only have four hours. After a convenient hotel pick up, you will get to see a number of key attractions in the city. The tour starts off with a visit to the Kek Lok Si Temple where you can marvel at the 7 Tier Pagoda of the 10,000 Buddhas. In addition to this, you will see the 30.2 meter bronze statue of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy. This compact tour also takes you to new heights – literally – because you will get to rise 833 metres above sea level aboard the funicular train ride to the top of Penang Hill. By the end of the tour, you'll have ticked off many of Penang's key sights.

What people are saying about Architecture Tour in Penang
The mansion looks even better than the photos.
Check in was a breeze. We were given a room on the ground floor overlooking the water feature.
We had our cocktails at the bar before dinner.
The 3 course dinner was really good and came in pretty big portion. The finale which was the yuzu and strawberry parfait was a feast for the eyes and the palate.
We get to pick our mains for our breakfast the night before. There was also a small buffet spread comprising of yogurt, breads, cereal and light snacks like lor bak and french toast with cheese and ham.
We selected western breakfast and teo chew porridge. Their fried pao is worth mentioning.
Breakfast was served in the courtyard which was a perfect setting.
We joined the 11am tour before check out and learnt more about the place and its history.
Overall, we love eveything about the mansion and all it has to offer.
