Presenting the first and only luxury gateway to 19th-century
Chinatown of Penang – 1881 Chong Tian Cultural Hotel.
1881 Chong Tian Cultural Hotel is set to be the first and the only one Chinese heritage hotel in Malaysia. Housed in a 130-year-old building that is currently being given a new lease of life, it was a thriving hotel in the late 1800s. Then known as the 1881 Chong Tian Hotel, it catered mainly to well-to-do merchants who came to the Penang harbour for trade and business.
