During your stay we’ll also take you on a guided tour of Penang to experience the local heritage, including stops at temples, mosques and Chinese-style architecture, and you’ll indulge in a spot of afternoon tea at Malaysia’s only surviving Georgian Mansion, Suffolk House, which dates back to 1804.
