Experience the Best of George Town from THE TOP@Komtar
George Town is a colourful tapestry of wonders – where distinct old-world cultures, internationally acclaimed built heritage, a vibrant arts scene and plenty more are seamlessly interwoven into an irresistible fabric of delightful experiences. Here, you will discover the best of Penang’s sights, sounds, smells and tastes. But with the amazing profusion of things on offer, do you know where to begin your adventure in this UNESCO World Heritage Site?
The best way to get a vantage view of this charming city is via its highest point. Introducing THE TOP@Komtar – a 249metre-high attraction in Penang that offers a stunning overview of the city, with its best views, best tastes and best theme attractions all conveniently located in one place.
Thanks to its formidable stature, THE TOP which is housed in the iconic Komtar tower, offers all-encompassing views of the entire UNESCO zone and beyond, right up to the Swettenham Pier and the historic clan jetties at the fringes of island. This way, you get to enjoy the best visual sampling of what the city has to offer.
However, if you’re looking for something more up close and personal, THE TOP will soon debut the Penang State Gallery, which features comprehensive facts and stories on Penang as well as a detailed model of the entire state, so you can get acquainted with every nook and cranny of the city.
If food is your “kryptonite”, you will definitely be spoilt for choice as THE TOP offers arguably the best selection of food choices, from Penang’s famed street food to international and fusion fare, fine dining and authentic local cuisines.
And then, of course, are the many other unique theme attractions at THE TOP that, among others, promise to take visitors to the top of the world and the depths of the oceans, as well as transporting them back to the land before time. These are categorised into the acclaimed “Window of THE TOP”, which encompasses the Rainbow Skywalk at the rooftop of the tower on Level 68 and the Observatory Deck on Level 65; as well as the “Avenue of Adventures” that features an array of edutainment and fun attractions, including the massive Jurassic Research Center, Tech Dome Penang, 7D Discoery Motion Theater, Ocean Explorer and many more.
