HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Brush up on Pe­nang’s his­tory (and duck out of the blaz­ing sun) at one of the city’s mu­se­ums. At the Colo­nial Pe­nang Mu­seum, you’ll un­cover hand­writ­ten doc­u­ments by Cap­tain Fran­cis Light, who founded Pe­nang in 1786. Head up the hill in Batu Maung and you’ll find your­self in the Pe­nang War Mu­seum, a fortress built by the Bri­tish army and later cap­tured by the Ja­panese. You can still see the World War II-era in­ter­ro­ga­tion cham­bers hid­den in the maze of tun­nels.

Colo­nial Pe­nang Mu­seum: $57. 7, Jalan D.S. Ra­manathan, 10350 Pe­nang, (+60) 17-666-2789. Pe­nang War Mu­seum: Lot 1350, Mukim 12, Daerah Daya, Batu Maung, 11960 Pe­nang, (+60) 4-626-5142.
