Penang Heritage Tip :: Cathay Hotel

This is mid-range budget hotel in an old whitewashed colonial-era Chinese mansion. Stepping inside is like walking into the past, with many of the building’s original features having been preserved, including the tiled floors, open air courtyard and carved woodwork.

Address: 15 lebuh leith, Georgetown, Penang 10200.

In 2002, “The Touch” starring Malaysian ex-Bond girl Michele Yeoh was filmed partly at the imposing Cathay Hotel.
