Details

Having lived in Penang for over a year now, I have loved exploring and getting under it's skin. I have shown family and friends of all ages around my current hometown and have been able to discover the best things to see and do. It doesn't matter if your a solo traveller, honeymooning couple, or a family, I can guarantee that Penang has something on offer for you. 

This guide comprehensively covers everything you need to start planning your visit - accommodation options, 4 pages of food and drink recommendations broken down by meal, detailed activities from historical to hiking, cultural tips, transport explanations, and a brief packing list.
