Located on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia, vibrant, multicultural Penang is the country’s fourth-largest island and is also known as the Pearl of the Orient. The Four Points by Sheraton Penang is conveniently located along a beachfront in Tanjung Bungah. We are just a 25-minute drive from the 13.5-kilometer bridge that links the island to the mainland, and 40 minutes from Penang International Airport (PEN).
There is plenty to see and do in Penang. Wander around on foot or in a rickshaw through the narrow streets and alleys in Penang’s charming capital city, George Town. A UNESCO World Heritage Site just 15 minutes from our resort, this compact city is filled with historical architecture, shops, and cafés. Take a short cable ride up Penang Hill to soak in the spectacular views of George Town and the Penang Bridge. Discover a sense of cultural serenity at Kek Lok Si Temple. A sprawling hilltop structure, it is the largest Buddhist temple in Malaysia. Dating back to the early 20th century, the clan house Khoo Kongsi is not to be missed, and the wonderfully restored Pinang Peranakan Mansion is also worth exploring.
See the endless collection of toys at the Toy Museum Heritage Garden. Located at Lebuh Farquhar, the Penang Museum & Art Gallery contains exhibits of old photographs, maps, charts, relics, and paintings showcasing Penang’s history. More history can be found at the well-preserved Fort Cornwallis, built by the sea in 1786. For an appreciation of nature visit the Botanical Gardens or Penang National Park.
Savor tasty treats in one of Penang’s famous Chinese bakeries. Sample the abundant seafood as well as legendary local specialties, including char kway teow, laksa asam, rojak, and cendol. For exciting nightlife, Upper Penang Road (UPR) is popular with locals and visitors alike.
