Pinang Island, or better known as Penang, is a state of Malaysia with the name derived from the areca nut palm trees. The region is recorded as a state with abundant natural resources and considerable zone of the forest environment. Alongside this beauty, many tourist attractions in Penang are also the mainstay of Malaysia.  Considered initially as an ordinary island, Penang began to clean up and keep up with the times. As the most popular city in Penang, Georgetown was designated as a World Heritage City by UNESCO in 2008. Here, you’ll find many historic buildings with attractive architectural styles. Penang has increasingly become more recognized thanks to technological advances and the rapid industry in Malaysia.

How to get there:

Penang Island is probably one of the easiest tourist destinations to reach in Malaysia. You can use every form of transport imaginable; plane, train, bus, car, and even a taxi (though this doesn't make sense compared to the other options due to the high price). From Kuala Lumpur, it generally takes around 5/6 hours to get to Penang, no matter which forms of transport you use. Most tourists travel to Penang by air. There are many daily flights from numerous airports within and outside of Malaysia to Penang International Airport. Prices are often very cheap, mainly because of the competition due to alternative ways to travel to the island.
