Penang in Pictures

April 15, 2014

Just a four hour drive north of KL sits Penang Island.  With its laid back charm, cool street art, unbeatable street food and abundance of cultural sites Penang Island makes for a vibrant weekend getaway.  Here are a few highlights (just kidding!  I couldn’t help myself and have included lots of pictures) from our excursion to this exceptionally photogenic place.

There is plenty of great food around every corner.  Just watch out for these guys! (Unless you are into being punished by your food...then, carry on : )

At night the city lights up with street side restaurants.  We happily tried as many as we could.  My daughter gave them all 5 stars.

One thing to watch out for in the water are jellyfish.  After being spotted, this one quickly met his maker.

The Khoo Kongsi Leong San Tong  clan house was built over 100 years ago.  It's a definite "must see."

The Kek Lok Si Temple the place to go if you have wishes that need granting. : )

My favorite part of this trip was seeing all the street art.  It's surprisingly interactive.
