Penang (Pulau Pinang), Malaysia overview

The swirl of Batik in eastern bazaars, the cascade of waterfalls in the Botanical Gardens, jungle-clad hills ringed by golden beaches, these are the images you will take from Penang. This lovely resort island and its bustling capital of Georgetown are the picture of Malaysian diversity. Visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and Kek Lok Si, one of the most beautiful temples in Southeast Asia. See the ornate Khoo Kongsi, and old Chinese clan house; and an 18th century British fortress. Enjoy the Chinese embroidery and Malay daggers in the Penang Museum, or marvel at the Penang Bridge (third longest in the world).

Did an excursion of famous homes and temples - excursion was a bit of a waste of time as the excursion was only a few minutes from the port- we left the excursion halfway through and did a walk about on our own which was great

You get right off at the port here, great, I didnt do a tour, but did my own thing, went shopping,, they have a hop on hop off bus, (cat) like in Perth Central Area Transit, but the locals only know it as the free bus. Did a lot of shopping here, but I only did the local Georgetown streets, Penang Rd markets.
