The main shopping area of the island is the town named Georgetown. It is simply full of spacious market squares where you can buy lots of various goods. There are several craft shops and shops that sell antiques. The most popular local souvenirs are mahjong chips (this game is popular among local residents), and female tourists may be interested in purchasing gloves with their name on them.
To the service of guests of this place are offered numerous tourist routes. You can go to the butterfly park or botanical garden, visit the temples of Penang, or make a walk in one of the old towns. In Georgetown you will find several museums and exhibition galleries, while nature-lovers should go to one of the parks, where they can sit in shadow and escape from the town’s noise.
