After being in the concrete jungle of KL we all found being in Penang very refreshing to be surrounded by nature, whether it be the ocean in front of us or the forrest and hills behind us.
Our last couple of weeks in Penang were a little quieter as we took in a bit more of this wonderful part of Malaysia…
Weeks 3 and 4 have flown by here in Penang – this region keeps growing on us, it is a wonderful spot….
It’s hard to believe we have already spent just over three weeks in the Penang region, we seem to have slotted into life here very easily. Perhaps it’s that we have already become quite familiar with Malaysia as a country before arriving here from KL. The Penang state encompasses Penang Island (which is where we are) and an area of mainland Malaysia. Georgetown, on the island, is the capital and was designated with World Heritage status by UNESCO on the 7th July 2008.
We weren’t expecting our trip from KL to Penang to be a blog post by itself but here it is, the joys of road travel….
