Penang

Penang is a state in Malaysia and the name of its constituent island, located on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia by the Strait of Malacca. It’s seaside location and walkable streets and alleys make for a great break from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur. The vibrant Little India district provides a delicious place to grab food and the painted shop houses make for wonderful wandering. We enjoyed visiting the huge Kek Lok Si Temple as well as strolling through the many intertwining lanes of Penang.
