Penang is famous not only for its food, but also for its history. A short Penang city tour to Fort Cornwallis, Street of Harmony and Chinatown will help you learn and understand more of the island's vibrant past.
This is the oldest and the most historical site of all Penang.
What started as a wooden fort was turned into a formidable fort with walls made of stones.
The site now has the remains of the fort, 17 cannons, a small prison and weapon cache area.
