On your first visit, you can’t miss a visit to Georgetown — Penang’s capital city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wondering how best to explore the city? By trishaw, of course! Georgetown’s Street of Harmony, in particular, is one of the top places to witness Penang’s rich collection of cultures.

For stunning views of the city, you’ll want to take a hike or a funicular ride up Penang Hill. And of course, no trip to Penang is complete without a taste of its mouth-watering street food  — so make sure to head over to the Peranakan hawker stalls!

Melaka

Another breathtaking Malaysian UNESCO World Heritage City, Melaka is an interesting mix of Peranakan history, Portuguese influence and Dutch architecture. To learn about Melaka’s history and culture, museum-hopping is the way to go. Make sure to hit Cheng Ho Cultural Museum and the stunning Melaka Sultanate Palace Museum for a visually stimulating history lesson. The Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum, on the other hand, is the perfect place to discover more about Peranakan culture!

Make sure your trip includes a visit to the awe-inspiring Melaka Straits Mosque. Also known as the Floating Mosque, it appears to float magically above water during high tide. Known for its captivating stained glass windows and elegant arches, it’s just as impressive during low tide.

Finally, no trip to Melaka is complete without hitting the Jonker Street Night Market!  On weekend nights, it’s the place to go shopping for clothing, artwork, souvenirs, trinkets, and other local handicrafts.
