Tours to Penang

The island of Penang or Pinang (eng. Penang is the Malay style. Penang or Pulau Pinang) is an island and state in Malaysia on the West coast of the Western (continental) part of the country in the Andaman sea. The island is located a few kilometers from the coast and connected with the mainland by a bridge. The territory of the state of Penang also includes a small strip of land near the island on the mainland. When tourists talk about Penang, it usually is about the island of Penang, which is one of the most popular tourist destinations, and not the state.

Penang is very popular among tourists visiting Malaysia, and ranks second in popularity and attendance after the island of Langkawi.

The island is George town (George Town), which is the state capital and introduced in 2008 in the world heritage list of UNESCO. In General, many tourists compare the island with the city: a large part of the island is developed and built up, covered with a network of roads with fairly heavy traffic.

Penang vacation is, first and foremost, sightseeing, shopping, excursions and entertainment. Life in Penang is busy and in full swing: there are many Nightclubs and entertainment venues, restaurants and shopping centers, souvenir shops and night markets. Beach holidays in Penang are concentrated only in certain parts of the island, which is not much inferior in quality to the famous beaches of Langkawi island. Most of the beaches of Penang beyond the tourist beach areas are dirty, with closely adjacent roads and skyscrapers. This "port-shopping-excursion" the island, and go here for a beach vacation is not worth it. There are good hotels and plenty of budget accommodation, restaurants, beautiful churches, parks and gardens. But the main hallmark of the island, and whatever was sent here thousands of tourists are the historical and cultural sights, of which there are several thousand!

There are several variants,but in any case the route you have to be on their own. Here in a nutshell information:
From Pattaya you need to get into Satun (city in the South of Thailand), and from there by ferry or drive to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis in Malaysia already.
I would prefer the first option, Satun, as passed through twice, it was fine. To Satun from Pattaya can be reached with a stopover in Bangkok. Travel from Bangkok to the southern bus station and there change to the bus to Satun. Previously, these buses were a lot, now looked up the schedule, there are very few, maybe just schedule them there. But even then that is quite suitable, it is night, will arrive in Satun in the morning and in the afternoon we will depart on the ferry. Basically about Satun all we've got painted -
The second option is via Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis. If by bus, you must first get from Bangkok to hat Yai (, and from there to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis as you prefer, and then onto the ferry. According to this embodiment can be on the train ride.

Honestly, difficult to answer, after all this is a very controversial status without citizenship. It can at passport control not to pay attention to it, and the place of issuance of the passport to put the visa for 90 days as a citizen of Estonia, and can not supply a visa and even do not give, because there is in fact a list of countries that require a visa and persons without citizenship there is clearly no. Try to call the Embassy in Moscow, and even better to write them a letter at least e-mail to answer on paper just in case. And if not difficult, then let me know what happened. ...
