Alas! We’ve come to a conclusion of our trip to the magical island of Penang. I personally, for once, truly enjoyed the tour (or should I call it a journey?). And if it was a journey, it was definitely a long one. We’ve met Uncle Lee who makes handmade joss sticks, visited farm and cottage industries in Balik Pulau, strolled around George Town for a food hunt, spent the nights in heritage boutique hotels, and walked through a 130 million-year-old virgin rainforest. Studying in Penang for 3 years, I thought I’ve explored the island to its every corner and tasted every delicacy possible. Yet, apparently, there was a lot more to discover and believe me when I say this, you will never feel content as there’s always something new every day for you to discover.
Penang is indeed The Pearl of The Orient. It has never had a shortage of locals visiting and foreign tourists coming from all over the world to experience what it has to offer. From its gastronomical delights to cultural and heritage buildings, this small island has definitely caught the eyes of the world. It’s a perfect destination for everyone – those who want to spend a holiday with their families, urbanites going for a short getaway with friends, nature enthusiasts and foodies alike.
