Re: Penang islandadmin5 May, 2015 My IMHO, is by far. I really like Penang, though not impose, on taste and color, as they say. But to take an evening walk to George town in search of flat wire sculptures (don't know how they correctly are called), or to seek out the famous graffiti on the walls... Romance. In General, I really like it there, despite the fact that it is noisy, dusty city. But beyond the island, too, all abound. But from romance to business. About the city of Langkawi in doubt, at least not seen such, though I do have tourist pamphlets from Langkawi to find and scroll through, there is about all the excursions booked. And you don't need trips, they can do it. If you already travel date is known in advance tickets by AirAsia to Langkawi-Penang-Langkawi. If shares can catch, they can give you $ 25 to do with man back and forth. You can still on the ferry, but by the time it turns out a little longer, almost half a day to spend. Well, or in one direction on the plane, back on the ferry, as you like. But in any case do not go ashore on the ferry+bus, kill the whole day. If questions, ask. ...

Re: the island of Penang,minister26 July, 2018 On the island of Penang in Malaysia, I visited already 3 times. The first time I came for 3 days, a week, for the third time already for 3 weeks. And I think that will go again. Talking to different people on the island and outside it, I notice more and more that this place is very much underestimated. Someone generally knows nothing about it and does not even think about to come. Someone (a lot) arrives in 2-3 days to make Thai or Indonesian visa. Really, Penang is an excellent and very convenient place for visa-wound of those long lives in Thailand (Phuket, Samui, Phangan) and those who "Longstreet" to Bali in Indonesia. But other than that, Penang is also very beautiful and interesting place in itself and that is what I want to share. Their posts in instagram I have inspired several people to go and explore the island a little deeper, and now decided to write a full article in the blog. I hope and believe will inspire even more! A little General information. Penang is a state in North of Malaysia, just 160 kilometres from the border with Thailand. The state consists of the island and the mainland strip of Seberang-Perai. It is now going about the island, what I liked 3 of their arrival. The size of Penang is about 2.5 times more than Thai of Koh Phangan, just a quarter more of Koh Samui and is about 20 times smaller than the island of Bali. If you look at the map, we can see that Penang is about halfway between the three most numerous Asian Nations — India, China and Indonesia. This arrangement was facilitated by a large influx of people from these countries and resulted Penang has become a beautiful, harmonious and prosperous center of the mixing of cultures and peoples.

Re: the island of PenangAnfisa21 September, 2018 Please tell me it is better to Penang by plane to Langkawi and back and forth? And 2-3 days is enough to see the most interesting places? Thank you. ...
Re: Penang islandadmin21 September, 2018 It depends on what you what you mean by "Better" ? If faster, then Yes, the plane is faster, but not so much, because the flight need to arrive for check-in , plus the aircraft arrives at the other end of the island, where the Georgetown still have to drive 30-60 minutes. But the ferry arrives right in Georgeton immediately to the hotel on foot can be reached, if well guided. 2-3 days, in principle, the most interesting to watch. Of course not all will see, but if several days to run the attractions. Also because you are tired physically and mentally, everything will be monotonous, so 3 day norm. But on the other hand, IMHO, the old parts of Georgetown are so cool, it is possible to walk endlessly, always something interesting. I personally just fell in love with Georgetown, so I went back a second time, and still going. ...
Re: the island of PenangAnfisa22 September, 2018 Thanks for the reply.. I understand.. better.. tell me the ferry tickets booked in advance or on the spot has to buy for Langkawi ferry to Penang? The hotel is better for sure in advance I guess ...
Re: Penang islandadminSeptember 23, 2018 Better, at least for the day. It is possible to buy over the Internet in place. But the place is inconvenient, you have to spend on taxi to the pier and back, and time to spend.
