George Town
, the capital city of the Malaysian state of Penang, is located at the north-eastern tip of Penang Island. It is Malaysia's second largest city, with 708,127 inhabitants as of 2010. Penang’s UNESCO-listed George Town combines stunning architecture, street art and food. George Town was Malaya’s (old name for Malaysia) thriving colonial port. Penang’s capital showcases some of the best examples of British architecture in Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

The British became wealthy from mining tin, rubber plantations and growing coffee in nearby Perak state. Ships exported these commodities from Penang. George Town’s legacy of this bygone era lies the number of preserved buildings. Restored colonial buildings line the older parts of the city overlooking the Straits of Melaka. Mosques, churches and temples sit side by side elsewhere. Street art adds character to the already colorful neighborhoods. Grand Chinese mansions stand next to food courts, shopping centers and weekend markets. Botanical Gardens sprawls at the base of towering Penang Hill, a favorite with hikers.
