Relax on Penang beaches; Breath fresh air on Penang Padi fields; Grab a drink on Penang Hill.
If time spent in Kuala Lumpur has reminded you that big cities really aren't your jam, a road trip to somewhere slightly more scenic and outdoorsy may be just the antidote you're after.
Penang was made for road trips. August is the perfect season to cruise along Penang scenic drives and byways with your windows down and the tunes up high. Stock up on the snacks, fill up that gas tank, and start exploring!
About 5 hours drive from KL, the island is well known for its food, heritage sites, sandy beaches, padi fields, fishing villages, and resorts.
