George Town is the capital city of the Malaysian state of Penang. George Town is Malaysia’s third most populous city with 708,127 inhabitants as of 2010, while Greater Penang is the nation’s second largest conurbation in the country after Greater Kuala Lumpur with a population of 2,412,616.[6][7][8] The historical core of George Town has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.[9]

Established as an entrepôt by Francis Light of the East India Company in 1786, George Town was the first British settlement in Southeast Asia.[10] Together with Singapore and Malacca, George Town formed part of the Straits Settlements, which became a British crown colony in 1867. It was subjugated by Japan during World War II, before being recaptured by the British at war’s end. Shortly before Malaya attained independence from the British in 1957, George Town was declared a city by Queen Elizabeth II, making it the first city in the country’s modern history.

Due to the intermingling of the various ethnicities and religions that arrived on its shores, George Town acquired a large eclectic assortment of colonial and Asian architectural styles.[11] It also gained a reputation as Malaysia’s gastronomic capital for its distinct and ubiquitous street food.[12][13][14] Moreover, the city hosts unique cultural heritage, such as the Peranakans, whose legacies are still visible on Penang’s architecture and cuisine.

The city of George Town includes the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone, a high-tech manufacturing hub regarded as the “Silicon Valley of the East”.[15][16] The city also serves as the financial centre of northern Malaysia and the nation’s most vital medical tourism hub.[17][18][19] Logistically, the Penang International Airport links George Town with several major regional cities, while a ferry service, the Penang Bridge and the Second Penang Bridge connect the city with the rest of Peninsular Malaysia. Meanwhile, George Town’s Swettenham Pier has emerged as the busiest port of call in Malaysia for cruise ships.[20][21]

Ayer Itam (also spelt Air Itam or Air Hitam) is a suburb of George Town in Penang, Malaysia. Nested within the central valleys of Penang Island, it is located approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) southwest of the city centre. Ayer Itam is one of the well-known places to sample Penang cuisine, and includes a handful of major tourist attractions such as Penang Hill and Kek Lok Si Temple.[1][2]

The area now known as Ayer Itam was first developed in the late 18th century, soon after the founding of Penang Island by Captain Francis Light in 1786. British officials intended to turn Ayer Itam, including Penang Hill, into an agricultural area and established spice farms. To this day, fruits and vegetables are still grown at the hills of Ayer Itam; fresh produce are then brought downhill daily to the wet markets throughout George Town.[3]

Balik Pulau is a town within the jurisdiction of Penang Island City Council in the Malaysian state of Penang. Located at the southwest of Penang Island, it is also the administrative seat of the Southwest Penang Island District.

The agricultural town of Balik Pulau was established in 1794 by the British East India Company. To this day, the economy of Balik Pulau still relies heavily on agriculture; Penang’s most famous produce, including nutmegs, cloves and durians, are grown and harvested in the town.[2][3] These have also contributed to the town’s growing tourism sector; Balik Pulau’s reputation for its wide variety of durians, for instance, attracts hordes of tourists between May and August each year.[4][5][6]

While Balik Pulau, and by extension, the western part of Penang Island, is generally seen as quieter in comparison to the bustling city centre on the other side of the island, urbanisation has also reached the town in recent years, with more residential developments being planned for this part of Penang Isla
