Flights to Penang

For exotic beaches, rich multicultural history and delicious food, look no further than Penang, a peaceful island located off the north-western coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The Malaysian island state of Penang is one of the most developed states in the country, commonly referred to as the 'silicon valley of Malaysia.' Though thoroughly industrialised, this does not detract from the island's attractions, with much of Penang's natural beauty and old warm charm still easily visible.

Airlines that fly to Penang

Penang Airport

Flights from the UKto Penang will disembark at Penang International Airport and include a stopover in Asia. Penang International Airport (PEN), previously known as Bayan Lepas International Airport, is situated in the southeast area of the island. The airport is located 10 miles away from George Town, the capital city of Penang.

Penang's capital is George Town, the financial and government centre of the state. It is also a city of fascinating history, which you can discover at the Queen Victoria Memorial Clock Tower, built in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, or at the Nagore Shrine, built in the early 1880s.

 

George Town, and Penang as a whole, is incredibly multicultural, with Indians, Chinese and Malays each boasting a rich history and strong community on the island. As such, George Town is home to Little India, China Town and a famous culinary culture. Travellers constantly rave about Penang's cuisine, with notable dishes including Char Kuay Teow, a flat noodle stir fry, and Hokkien Mee, a fragrant noodle soup. Some of the best examples of these dishes can be found on the street. Opt for the street hawker with the largest crowd and enjoy some world famous Penang cuisine.

 

Though the kitchens of Penang may be full of action and activity, the island's beaches are quiet and peaceful. Some of the state's best beaches can be found in the northern part of Penang, such as Batu Feringghi and Taluk Kampi Beach. For even more pristine and untouched beaches, consider heading out to Aman or Jerejak Island, located off Penang's coast.
