The capital city of Penang Island, Georgetown is a classic example of the colourful mingling of multiple cultures in Malaysia. Home to a host of original colonial (Chinese style) shophouses, the UNESCO listed World Heritage Site, Georgetown has many beautiful historical buildings, churches, mosques, government offices, and Western-style skyscrapers and shopping complexes shining high above British Raj–era architecture. Georgetown has many tourist attractions, such as the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and the Kuan Yin Teng Temple Penang at the heart of Chinatown. The Gurney Beach Penang and nearby hawker stalls in Gurney Drive (for a taste of Penang food), the cool breeze and beautiful scenery of the Batu Feringghi beach is just mesmerizing. The labyrinth of narrow lanes and chaotic streets, historical shrines decorated with strings of paper lanterns, shops selling Indian spices, modern cafes and fun bars are tourist delights in Georgetown.
