Experience the culture and natural beauty of George Town
Although George Town is Malaysia’s second largest city, the old-town neighborhood offers charming, quaint streets perfect for experiencing the local culture.
The city is quickly becoming known for its incredible street art, a craze that was started when Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic painted eight murals around the city in 2012 for the annual George Town Festival. After the murals went viral on social media the government and tourist board encouraged the creation of these public art pieces by both local artists and artist from around the world.
Take a private group tour to see the beautiful art with a tour guide to explain each piece along the way.
If outdoor adventures are more your style, visit the Panang National Park located on the northwestern side of the island. This gorgeous national park is home to lush, tropical hiking trails and beautiful stretches of beach with tons of wildlife. Visit Monkey Beach and watch macaque monkeys as they search for crab. Or visit the park’s Turtle Sanctuary. There are hiking options and a boat tour if you want to visit both spots in one day. This is a perfect way to get your team out of the office and on a tropical adventure.
Architecture of Milan
Milan is a stylish, cosmopolitan city that is the financial center for all of Italy. It is also home to many stunning, architectural gems. The most recognizable building is the Duomo Di Milano.
The Duomo is the third largest Catholic church in the world and has 135 spires and 2,245 statues decorating its facade. The interior of the cathedral features gorgeous Italian marble and beautiful stained glass windows. The views from the rooftop provide panoramic views of Milan’s skyline with the towering Alps in the background.
Another beautiful example of the local architecture is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the oldest active mall in Italy. The design features two four-story arcades with a tall, vaulted glass ceiling and a large octagonal area in the center that boasts a beautiful glass domed roof with four mosaics laid into the floor. The mall is home to many luxury retailers, options for dining and is a social, gathering spot in the community.
To see all of the architecture Milan has to offer, take an architectural tour with Guided Architects. This tour company’s guides are professional architects offering customized tours focused on architecture, urban planning, and design.
