A little bit of intro...

The former British colony of Penang Island at the Strait of Malacca has been gaining popularity throughout the world as a tourist destination. From a sparsely-uninhabited island in the 18th. century, this melting pot of cultures grew into one of Malaysia's major cities.

Therefore, this Penang wiki, made only by local Penangites, is created for Penangites as well as the world.

For the sake of clarity, this wiki focuses on Penang Island, even though the state of Penang consists of both Penang Island and a strip of mainland Peninsular Malaysia called Seberang Perai.
