This trip is all about getting on foot and feeling local in Penang as I'll take you back to the earliest discovery and development of the Island through history, plants we'll walk past and especially from the local cuisine we'll get to indulge in along the way. It's like a trip like no other as you explore the city with all your senses! Georgetown traffic is crazy hence, this walk is exclusively conducted either at 7.30 AM or 5.30 PM for you absorb the Island's beauty without the crowd!

Every part of Georgetown tells a story. We will begin the walk at the Penaga Hotel followed by the Francis Light Cemetery while Selva will introduce you Penang from the first day Captain Francis Light discovered the Betel Nut Island, now known as Penang. Some of the historical sites include Neoclassical Eclectic Houses, En route to E&O, City Hall, Godowns, Queen Victoria Clock Tower, Street Arts, Clan Jetties, Armenian Street, Temples and Shrines
It's a trip on foot so be sure to wear something comfortable. Take steps to protect yourself from the sun and we encourage staying hydrated so a water bottle is a plus point! And you're petty much set!
