During this trip, you’ll hop on a bike for a tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Georgetown, the cultural heart of the city. Wander amongst the flower carts and tandoori stands of Little India, mosey past multi-coloured Chinese temples and sample some seriously tasty street food.

For two nights, you’ll stay in the centre of Georgetown, Penang’s most atmospheric and happening area and a recognised UNESCO World Heritage site.

Guided Bike Ride & Departure

There’s no better way to get to know Penang’s heritage and food scene than to hop on a bike and explore with a local guide. You’ll be collected from your hotel and transferred to the starting point where you’ll be given your bike, helmet and safety jacket. From here you will cycle with your guide in a small group around the city, discovering hidden temples and learning about the history of this area.
