In the 4 months I was in Malaysia, it was together with a friend. Our maine reason was for a schoolpractice, but we did much more than that. We stayed in a school for blind children, our practiceplase, the fisrt 2 months, but it was to small. In these 2 months we had a holliday for 2 weeks to thailand, a very nice country, everybody should go there!! We lived in Penang, but sometimes we went to the mainland or Langkawi to relax and just enjoy the beach and the sun. The other 2 months we stayed in a condo in Battu Ferringhi, very nice, with a swimmingpool, fitness and sauna, what more do you need?! We had to get every morning at 6 to take the bus to the school. Ans as avery outher meal, we took breakfast on the street!! I loved eating on the street, you dont have to cook and its so cheap!! Januari and Februari are very hot and the ebst to go there!
At the end of our practice my sister came to visit me and to go back home together. Together with my sister I went snorkeling, everybody should try this, so cool!!! After a few days stay in Penang and snorkeling, we took the bus to Cameron Highlands. It was raining that day and so cold!! Only 25 degree, but it feld so cold because Penang was 37 degree for 2 months... In Cameron Highlands there was allot of beautifull nature. The last days we took the bus to Kuala Lumpur, and it lokks like every outher capitalcity. We visited the twin towers, battu caves, the palace and some outher tipical places, only good for max 4 days.
I was there on Christmas, Newyear, Taipusum and Chinese Newyear, so we have seen allot of cultural things, thats the best time to go.
I hope all my expereances helpt you with your trip to Penang!! I loved it!!
