Penang

Penang is one of Southeast Asia's most popular island resorts and with good reason. This Malaysian island paradise has been a trading hotspot for centuries, but these days it is tourists who come to explore a varied tropical island.

Penang is a resort island with beaches spread right around much of its fringes. You can engage in the range of watersports, with everything from boat trips through to jet skiing and windsurfing. Quieter beaches are available to the south of the island - there are day trips from Batu Ferringhi or you can hire a car and head south in search of your own beach escape.

Beyond the beach: Penang's main town of Georgetown has plenty to keep holidaymakers looking for a change from sunbathing occupied. For a bird's eye view take the funicular up to Penang Hill. Back at street level, the Chinese influence is obvious from the ornate old merchants' houses, the excellent regional restaurants and the old houses built on stilts overlooking the water.

Family fun: Hotels can be a good starting point for finding things for younger visitors to do, with children's clubs and swimming pools. Batu Ferringhi, as a fully-fledged resort, also has plenty to keep youngsters happy with watersports and boat trips. The Penang Butterfly Farm can also be an interesting diversion.
