Why Penang?

I guess it has alot to do with the strong emotional attachment...I was born and bred on this beautiful island.

During this brief period of my adulthood, I have seen Penang through some of her significant moments especially in her change in keeping up with the times and development with the rest of the world.

I would be honoured to take you around the Island of the Betelnut and discover sights and fancies that will captivate and enchant you...and with a little help from your imagination, take you back in time.

I shall tell you the history of the island, of the temples, churches, and mosques; show you the beaches, and marvellous scenery; introduce you to the endless array of local food, with something for every palette; all this, and more, is what makes Penang the 'Pearl of the Orient'.

So, let us push open the 'door to the East', and discover the places and people which make the island of Penang unique...
