Situated on top of the Bukit Batu Maung, the Penang War Museum in Penang Island is a must visit attraction for anyone visiting this part of the region. Initially it was a British military defense fortress which was built in anticipation of the second world war. It has been built by locals, Prisoners-of-War, Nepalese, Indians and South Africans but is a design of British engineers. The museum houses sleeping quarters for soldiers, anti-aircraft firing bays and canon-firung bay. A Penang hotel offering excellent comforts and service is Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang. It is a desirable Tanjung Bungah Hotel Penang catering various types of travellers.
