It was a short flight anda complete change from the vibrancy of the city. We chose Penang- The Pearl of The Orientbecause we liked the idea of the beach at Batu Ferringhi, the lovely hotels (we choseShangri-las Rasa Sayang Resort).While we were there, we relaxed, shopped in the colourful street market at night, ate in thewonderful restaurants and hawker food stalls (which were fantastic and very reasonably priced).We also went up Penang Hill, went into Georgetown, Kek Lok Si, Dhammikarama, and thereclining Buddah temple to name only a few of the amazing sights we saw. It was truly awonderful holiday and we can’t wait to go back! 3/6

Also get onto boat and enjoy scuba diving orsnorkeling.Penang is a place where you can get a chance to see diversity of Malaysia culture.How about adding Cameron Highland to your list.It’s a wonderful peaceful place for honeymooners too.A place of tea plantation, strawberry farms, rose garden and everything nice. 4/6
