Before we start let me introduce to you a bit about Penang. Penang – THE PEARL OF THE ORIENT, is known to the world as a beautiful, exotic holiday destination, she is Pulau Pinang – a virgin paradise that got her name from the abundance of betel nut palms scattered across her soft, sandy beaches. The Island measures a modest 285 sq. km. And is inhabited by slightly over a million people who hail from a diverse mix of cultures and religions.
Penang has always been a popular tourist destination, both domestically and internationally.In 2009, Penang attracted 5.96 million tourists, ranking third in tourist arrivals in Malaysia. Penang is known for its rich heritage, multicultural society and its vibrant culture, its hills, parks, and beaches, shopping, and good food. Penang enjoys a year-round tropical rainforest climate which is warm and sunny, along with plentiful rainfall, especially during the Southwest Monsoon from April to September. The climate is very much dictated by the surrounding sea and the wind system.
Penang has been ranked by Yahoo! Travel as one of the “10 Islands to Explore Before You Die” and listed in Patricia Schultz’s best-selling “1,000 Places to see before you die” travel book.
