Welcome to Penang !

A view of Georgetown, the capital of Penang.

Penang has population of over one million, while 400,000 lived in the capital Georgetown. The population is ethnically split between Chinese, Malays and Indians, the largest of the three groups being the Chinese followed by the Malays. Penang has not endured the difficulties that such a diverse ethnic mix has brought to other parts of the country. It is known for it's tolerance and peaceful society.
