Welcome to the Penang Old House Homestay, located in one of the famous tourist destinations in Malaysia - Penang Island, formally known as “Prince of Wales” Island. Penang was part of the Malay sultanate of Kedah until 1786, when Captain Francis Light built a fort at the site of present-day Georgetown and managed to get the island ceded to the British East India Company. The island, along with Malacca and Singapore, was one of the three British Straits Settlements. Last time Penang was a British colony island, now Penang is renowned as a place with plenty of famous gourmet dishes, most picturesque and romantic city in South East Asia..... Penang Island is located at the north-western coast of Malaysia. This bustling metropolis is a reflection of the unique Eastern and Western culture. Be it lush tropical gardens or ornately designed temples and unique heritage buildings such as the classic British-style villas and Chinese-style shop houses, Penang will give you a glimpse into a world where nature, tradition and history blend into a rich cultural tapestry.
