A Culinary Inspired Trail Through Penang

Discover the heritage rich sites of Penang and its multi-cultural background through its amazing food. This fulfilling program will set taste buds salivating as you sample the best of the city’s street food. We fill ourselves with sweet and savory treats while learning about traditional Malaysian cuisine alongside locals at a selection of street style restaurants. On our culinary trail we take in the surrounding history, strolling along old city streets, passing preserved heritage sites and stopping at famed food spots such as one of Penang’s oldest Chinese coffee shops.

With Malay, Chinese and Indian flavors in its street food, there’s no better way to literally taste the cultural diversity of Penang. The inexpensively priced cuisine is delightfully rich in flavor and available at all hours of the day (the secret to the immense flavor in the use of age-old family recipes and old-fashioned cooking methods). One of the most diverse places for street food in Penang is Persiaran Gurney’s busy and iconic Gurney Drive Hawker Centre which will please even the fussiest eater.
