About George Town

George Town is the colorful and multicultural capital of this Malaysian island of Penang. This city named after King George III. And walking down the streets of Georgetown is like walking on the paths of history. As acceptance of its well-preserved cultural and historical heritage, the city was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on the 7th of July 2008. The wide-ranging jumble makes this a city that rewards explorers. Get lost in the maze of chaotic streets and narrow lanes and the past shrines of George Town is decorated with strings of paper lanterns and there are fragrant shops which are selling Indian spices; or enjoy George Town's expanded street-art scene, its modern cafes and fun bars.

The time-worn shophouses of the Unesco World Heritage Zone will likely spark a desire in some visitors to move straight to Pulau Penang's most attractive city. The more impressive thing of this city is the movie set–like mishmash of Chinese temples in Little India, mosques in Chinatown, and Western-style skyscrapers and shopping complexes which are gleaming high above British Raj–era architecture.
