Penang Island is located at the Malacca Strait and is the primary constituent island of the Malaysian state of the same name. The island, which is separated by the Penang Strait from the mainland, serves as the home of almost half of the state’s entire population. In the past, under the British rule, Penang was known as Prince of Wales Island and served as a center for spice production as well as a major harbor. The island gained independence in 1957 and has since become one of Malaysia’s most popular destinations.

In fact, the city of George Town is named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Furthermore, the island is also dubbed as the “Silicon Valley of the East” because of its thriving technological industry.

Top Things to Do
Penang Island is an exciting Asian destination because it offers just about anything that a traveler is looking for – from historical attractions, shopping streets and malls, diverse local cuisine, an exceptional art scene, and other cultural experiences. If you find yourself overwhelmed with where to start, here are some of the best spots worth seeing.
Penang Island is a place that is rich culturally, and it is evident in the number of world-class museums and galleries found here. Each museum has a unique story to tell. Exploring and learning are great ways to learn more about the island and its history.
Colonial Penang Museum: Culture vultures and enthusiasts will surely appreciate a visit to this museum, which gives a look into the history of Penang and what life was like during the British Colonial era. The museum was once the family home of rich merchants and is still largely preserved with the original furniture, art collections, interiors, and other personal effects. (Bag policy: Guests aren’t allowed to bring oversized bags inside the museum. Instead, leave your things with Bounce before your visit.)
Penang State Museum and Art Gallery: Established in 1821, this museum is one of Penang’s finest institutions and houses a collection of national treasures, artifacts, images, paintings, and other items that tell the story of how Penang developed over the years. (Bag policy: Large bags, backpacks, or luggage are prohibited inside the museum. An alternative is to leave your things at a Bounce location nearby.)
Wonderfood Museum: The first food museum in Penang, the Wonderfood Museum is truly a must-visit on the island. The museum opened its doors in 2015 and has since been a hit with both locals and tourists. Wonderfood has on display some of the local food in gigantic sizes and talks about the history of Penang’s cuisine. (Bag policy: The museum does not allow guests to carry big bags inside. What you can do is locate a Bounce partner and leave your things there.)
When it comes to shopping options, you won’t run out of places to go when in Penang. The island is filled with retail areas that cater to all kinds of shoppers and budgets – from stalls and street markets to malls and upscale shopping centers.
Gurney Drive: Also known as Persiaran Gurney, this strip is lined with hawker stalls and restaurants and is home to the famous Gurney Plaza, a premier lifestyle and shopping mall in Georgetown, Penang. The mall carries many global brands such as Rolex, Omega, Pandora, CK Jeans, Kiehl’s, and more. Gurney Paragon Mall is also a well-known shopping spot along the Drive.
Batu Feringghi: Aside from its stunning beaches, Batu Feringghi is also renowned for its host of shopping options, particularly its iconic night market. Here, you will find some of the usual souvenirs as well as artworks, food, wardrobe, jewelry, and even some knock-off designer bags and shoes.
Campbell Street: Located in Georgetown, this well-known street is considered to be one of the most important shopping areas on the island. The street features hundreds of stalls and vendors that have been around for years, selling everything from wardrobe, fabrics, tea, herbs, jewelry, dried food, and more.
Penang is dubbed as the food capital of Malaysia and is considered a food lover’s haven. Thus, you can expect some memorable dining experiences while on the island. Here are some of the must-try dining spots when in Penang.
Street food: Asam laksa, char kway teow, and nasi lemak are just some of the iconic street foods in Penang that you absolutely have to try. You can practically find these dishes everywhere, but there are some stalls that you shouldn’t miss. Some of the famous spots include Gurney Drive Hawker Centre and Chulia Street Night Hawker Stalls for hawker finds, Paya Terubong for nasi lemak, Kafe Hueng Huat and Sister Yao’s Char Koay Kak for noodles, Lok Lok for some skewers and the Air Itam area for asam laksa.
Fine dining: Although Penang is known for its hawkers, there’s no shortage of fine dining options for those who want to spoil themselves and have a 5-star dining experience. Some of the island’s most beloved fine dining restaurants include Indigo Restaurant at the Blue Mansion Hotel, Restaurant Au Jardin, Blanc at Macalister Mansion, and Kebaya Dining Room at Seven Terraces Hotel.
Indian food: Indian cuisine is a huge part of Penang’s culture, and you can find plenty of authentic Indian restaurants on the island that are worth a visit. Perhaps the most popular place to go to for Indian food is Woodlands Vegetarian Restaurant, which has an exclusively vegetarian menu. Other Indian restaurants to try in Penang are Sri Ananda Bahwan, Passions of Kerala Restaurant, Indian Palace Penang, Kashmir Restaurant, and Micke’s Place.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
