Penang is a beach getaway located at 320 kms North of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. Penang is a typical beach getaway where locals, guests from other countries in South East Asia and travelers from other Asia countries arrive for a bit of the beach and bit of street food / fun / entertainment.

The most popular beaches in Penang are located at Tanjung Bungah, Batu Ferringhi, and Teluk Bahang, and these contiguous beaches are home to Penang's famed hotel and resort belt.

Penang is also considered food capital of Malaysia for its wide ranging street food and restaurant offering.

Penang may not compare well with Langkawi for its crystal clear water but it outscores it for its sheet fun, party, nightlife and entertainment option that it has and therefore often frequented by getaway seekers around South East Asia.
