Circle The Island

Penang or “Pulau Pinang” which means ''Island of Betelnut Palms'' - was once a pirates' hideout. It came under British control in 1786. History has it that Captain Francis Light loaded the cannons with silver coins and fired into the thick undergrowth and the locals scrambled to recover them - thus clearing the area for settlement. Born as a crossroads for traders from Arab to Europe, India to China and nearby islanders, Penang is today a mini Asia in a nutshell! The island still retains its natural charm with quiet sunkissed beaches along the famed Batu Ferringhi strip. Highlights: - Tranquil fishing villages at Teluk Bahang (Bay of Reflected Light). - Batik Factory (a local cottage industry) - one of the largest original hand-made batik factories in Northern Malaysia. - Fruit Stall - Discover our exotic tropical fruits & spices. - Laid back Malay villages (Kampung) - village houses on stilts. - Snake Temple or the Temple of Azure Cloud, where poisonous Wagler's pit vipers perch on the altars. - Visit to OE Design and admire the intricate pieces of jewellery that have been crafted.
