The Best Things to Do in Penang, Malaysia | City Tour

With sunny, warm, tropical weather for 12 months of the year it's easy to see why us Brits have such an attraction to Malaysia and after spending a week in Penang, I now know why there is an affinity to this particular city in our great history. Penang is located in the northwest sector of Malaysia and is an Island just off of the mainland city of Sungai Petani with Georgetown as its capital. If you are a backpacker entering Malaysia from the south of Thailand it's a great location to visit straight after having a relaxed few days on the beaches of Langkawi and before heading on to Kuala Lumpur for some city life.
