What people are saying:

It’s a very beautiful place. It’s a place with a slower life and a slow pace. It’s especially leisure. The buildings here are beautiful, old but very flavorful. There are also many authentic snacks nearby, and they are still Chaoshan flavor.

Additional Information


This star-shaped fort was built in 1786 primarily to protect Penang from pirates. It was originally built out of palm trunks with no permanent structures, but two decades later, as the Napoleonic Wars broke out, it was rebuilt by convict laborers using brick and stone. Today, the old fort contains a history gallery and souvenir shop. An amphitheater often hosts local music and dance performances.
