Named after King George III, Georgetown (pop. 600,000) is located on the north-east of Penang Island. Whilst one of Malaysia's more populated cities, Georgetown is also one of Malaysia's more laid-back cities, slowly coming to life only by around noon. That said, by evening, Georgetown truly sizzles, pretty much in the literal sense too, because the main activity in Georgetown is enjoying authentic hot Asian meals and having a drink or two.

As one of the three Straits Settlements, along with Malacca and Singapore, Georgetown has a rich and marbled history. And it still shows; Georgetown's original heart is still decidedly colonial in flavor, as some of its shophouses date back as far as the early 1900's.
In fact, Georgetown's old street markets and hawkers remain as alive today as they were back then.
Like most of Malaysia, Georgetown comprises a kaleidoscope of colors and cultures. Where Georgetown differs from the rest of Malaysia, however, is that Georgetown's population isn't predominantly Malay, but made up of primarily ethnic Chinese, followed by Malays and ethnic Indians.
Apart from its unique architecture, cultural townscape and its well-earned UNESCO World Heritage status, Georgetown is renown the world over for its culinary magnificence too. So while you're in Penang, and Georgetown in particular, do try some of the typical Georgetown highlights, such as nasi kandahar and cendol. You'll be smitten instantly.
Other must-visit places of interest around Georgetown are:
Batu Ferringhi, a beach favorite for both locals and tourists.
Balik Pulau, offering nearby kampongs, fruit orchards and padi fields.
By the way, Penang and Georgetown have been ranked by Yahoo! Travel as one of the "10 Islands to Explore Before You Die.
