Cruises to Penang

Known as “The Pearl of the Orient,” this island’s rainforest and waterfall-clad mountains form the backdrop to its beautiful, sandy beaches. The capital’s George Town Historic District, a wonderful mix of elaborate colonial homes, Chinese heritage buildings and temples, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The sprawling Kek Lok Si Temple, with a 100-foot pagoda and gardens, overlooks George Town, and is a great spot for photos. Penang’s abundant street eats will tempt foodies.
