The Penang Island region
Penang's climate is equatorial, with a very pleasant mix of warm, sunny days and the occasional cooling rain storms. It is widely know as the Pearl of the Orient and is an island that has been attractive to travellers and visitors over the centuries.
Penang has perhaps more on offer per square mile than any other place in the world. For sheer variety of locals, cultures and foods. Penang is hard to beat. Georgetown the capital boasts Southesast Asia's largest collection of intact prewar buildings. Stroll past a century old church, a Chinese temple, an Indian temple and a Muslim mosque all with a short distance of each other. Sample the delicious hawker foods which seem to be available on every corner of the city twenty four hours a day seven days a week. Festivals occur throughout the year and life goes on at a slow pace that most visitors can only envy.
Of course should one wish to leave the city there is always the peace and tranquility of the
beaches and the hills. Many attractions abound outside the city including a Butterfly Farm, a Tropical Spice Garden, Fruit Farm, Penang Hill Railway, Batik Factory and of course the food is an experience in itself.
Enjoy the flavor of the Orient in Penang.
The Batu Ferringhi area
Batu Ferirnghi, situated along the coastal road north-west of Georgetown and lined with a string of international-standard resorts, is the most popular beach in Penang.
Soak in the sun or unwind on the beach while you enjoy a host of aquatic thrills from wind-surfing to canoeing. For a spine-tingling adventure, try para-sailing to enjoy the view of the beach from the sky. Horse riding is available as is jet skiing and the usual beach pursuits for the adults and children.
As the sun sets, Batu Ferringhi comes alive with a carnival-like atmosphere with an open-air bazaar selling anything from ornate curios to enticing souvenir items. Watch local artisans demonstrate the intricate art of craft-making and batik-painting. Dubbed the Ferringhi Walk, the bazaar offers shoppers a host of attractions.
The bazaar is held every evening of the year along the footpath that runs on either side of the main road that winds its way through Batu Ferringhi. Many bargains are to be had for the smart shopper, so make sure that you do bargain the price as that is what you are expected to do. Stalls sell everything from clothes, DVDs CDs, jewelery and other local and imported handicrafts.

Our unit was clean well appointed and handy to everything. Great view if the beach. Bus at front door, spa and night markets a short walk down the road. Susie was very helpful organising airport transfers etc. would go back tomorrow
12 Feb 2013
We stayed in apartment 10-03, Susie arranged an airport transfer for us, Simon was waiting in Penang arrivals, he is a lovely man and told us lots about the island on the way to Batu Ferringhi, he even gave us an information leaflet explaining the local cuisine.
The apartment is equipped like no other we have stayed in, the owners have thought of everything from bin liners to dish washer tablets, it is fantastic. Lots of towels too.
Susie was waiting at the apartment to meet us and to explain how the utilities worked, location of shops and money changers, along with everything else we would need to know. We found the money changer directly across the road from the Holiday Inn gave a higher rate (about 4% more than the others), the shop is yellow on the outside and next to a Tailor, about 15 min stroll from the apartment, we exchanged money when we were going to the night market and out for dinner as we were down that way anyway.
The apartment is very clean, the view is beautiful and it has everything you could possibly need for a home away from home experience. There's plenty of storage space for clothes, the beds are firm, which was perfect for us and the furniture is very comfortable.
Straight across the road for the apartment complex is where you catch the bus into George Town (2.70MR), we spent a few days there, following the Heritage Trail which is very straight forward and incredibly interesting.
When you leave the main entrance of Sri Sayang, just to the left is a shack serving typical Malay street food, you can eat in or take away, it's ridiculously cheap but an excellent way to sample lots of different things, The lady speaks relatively good English and will tell you what you are about to buy, we bought a selection of goodies from there a couple of days, for rice cooked in coconut milk, wrapped in a banana leaf, 2 small doughnuts, prawn kebab and 2 small, spicy potato pasties we paid just under 1€ for the lot. The bus stop to go to the Tropical Spice Garden, Butterfly Farm, Tropical Fruit Farm and the Penang National Reserve is right next to the shack and we found the buses to be every 5-10 minutes on both sides of the road. Bus to George Town costs 2.70 MR and the bus going the other way to the Spice Garden etc was 1.40 - 2.00 MR, you won't get change on the bus so make sure that you have more or less the correct amount, always make sure you ask the driver for your tickets,as we saw a lot of ticket inspectors during our time there. You can download the bus service timetable, which will also give you the prices to where you want to go, just Google RapidPenang and off you go! Weekly bus pases can be bought for around 8€ per person but the buses are so cheap we didn't bother.
The night market is a few minutes stroll away, about a third of the way down it, there is a large square full of hawker stalls, called Long Beach, we ate there lots of times, there are around 25 different stalls, serving Malaysian, Chinese & Indian food, along with a couple of others, it's incredibly cheap, cooked freshly to order and again, with prices so low, you can try everything and not worry whether or not you will like it, just take in the atmosphere and sample things you may not normally try. Just tell the stall owner your table number and pay when they bring the food to you. Just down the road, on the same side as Sri Sayang is a place called Eden Centre which houses KFC, a couple of convenience stores and banks, if you go to the 2nd floor, there's a Chinese Restaurant called 'Andrews', we've never had prawns dishes as good as here, Andrew is a lovely guy and will tell you when he thinks you are ordering too much food (easily done, everything we tried was delicious)! They also do an all you can eat for 23MR, this was small portions (so you can try lots of different dishes), cooked to order, we didn't try that but lots of others did and it all looked fab.
Susie and Jamie went out of their way to make sure that we had a wonderful holiday and we cannot thank them enough, we will definitely rent one of their apartments next time we go back to Penang, it makes a huge difference knowing that they are only a phone call away for advice.
Buy a sim card from the 7/11, (take your passport for ID, the shop assistant also needs to input a store purchase code to activate the sim so don't just leave when you have bought it or you'll have to return to get it done) it costs 8 MR which includes 5MR credit which was invaluable when we were out and about, we used the sat nav on our mobile phone to find places of interest whilst we were walking around George Town, we topped up an extra 5MR during our 2 week stay and still had 3MR left on it when we left, which meant I could catch up on emails whilst we were waiting at the airports for our flights home.
All in all, we had a 5 star holiday experience and cannot fault anything about our stay, we were given a friendly and professional service, from the time of booking, right up until we left.
Thanks Susie & Jamie, we had a wonderful time :)
