Penyengat Island


Your historical journey begins as you board a local sea craft that will take you back in time to Penyengat Island. This is the abode of the kings of the last phase of the Malay Kingdom. Here, the ruins of an old palace, the Royal Mosque and mausoleum are all adorn in hues of yellow and green. The rusting cannons that defended the locals against the Dutch invaders still caste their glances over the sea and the sounds of a bygone era still echo in the wind. The island and all its attractions are pending listing as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is no wonder it has been awarded the ‘Certificate of Excellence’ by TripAdvisor.
