Updated: Dec 7, 2020

Although this was not our first time visiting the island of Penang, this time we spent 4 weeks there in July 2019 2019 and we chat about how we found it to be a suitable destination for longer-term “travel-living”. We also touch on what to see and do as tourists as well as on our personal experiences there with regards to both sights and food.

Penang Island has a wonderful blend of relaxed island vibe together with all the mod-cons of a bustling modern city. As with many areas of Malaysia, Penang reflects a blend of East and West as well as old and new. The capital and historic city of George Town, has preserved a wealth of both Colonial and Asian heritage buildings, which make the main town centre together with the quaint side streets a truly picturesque city to explore on foot.
