Wondering if it’s worth stopping in Penang on your Malaysian adventure?

Located off the west coast of peninsular Malaysia, Penang is our favourite part of Malaysia and somewhere we used to call home. It’s home to a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site in George Town, beautiful beaches, some of the best food in the world and so much more!

In the same day, you can be surrounded by jungle on a mountain, lying on a beach, exploring the cultural heritage of George Town and eating the best food of your life! There is so much to love about Penang.
