Ep.38 - Top 10 Penang, MALAYSIA (Budget Travel Guide)

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

In this episode, we discuss our Top 10 Things to See and Do in PENANG. The Island of Penang is just off the West Coast of Malaysia and is actually connected to the mainland by two long bridges. We had previously visited shortly in 2014 and now spent the full month of July 2019 staying just outside of Georgetown, Penang. We enjoyed the fact that Penang is both modern, fantastically practical and functional, and yet still has so much culture and historical authenticity.

We discuss the following:

  1. Georgetown Walking Tour & Street Art

  2. Penang National Park

  3. Batu Ferringhi Beach & Night Market

  4. Penang Botanical Gardens

  5. Arulmigu Balathandayuthapani Temple / Penang Waterfall Hill Temple

  6. Penang Hill

  7. Eat Local Food at a Night Market

  8. The Top Penang At Komtar Tower

  9. Chinese Clan Jetties

  10. Penang Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque
