Re. The most informative reference point for Nonya Baba heritage
I think that Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion will also be to your liking next time you're in Penang and is more of the same you had at Peranakan. I would say of the two though, the one I brought up is a lot more flamboyant.

The most informative reference point for Nonya Baba heritage
I would say that the trip to Peranakan Mansion, which is now a museum, was fascinating and we became a lot more informed on the ethnic diversity and true heritage of Penang as an island and Malaysia as a whole. It's also good for those who admire such buildings of splendour.

Re. More than just a monastery
If you like views then the best one is meant to be from Bukit Bendera - especially at night. You can see the whole of Georgetown and Penang's bridge light up. It isn't free but not going to harm your budget at RM30 per adult or RM15 per child.

More than just a monastery
They say that once you've seen one temple/monastery in Asia, you've seen them all. In my opinion this doesn't apply to Kek Lok Si - the Monastery on Crane Hill, which is a historic site while also providing panoramic views of the whole of Penang island. Recommended.

I would dread to think how you would walk up this
We rightfully gasped upon being told that Penang Hill is over 2,750 feet tall, which is why you can understand we opted for the railway up it. This was a great scenic rail route and definitely worth the effort.
