Penang Flights GuidePenang, a Malaysian state, serves as a link between Europe and Asia. Penang is divided into two parts: Penang Island and Seberang Perai on the main Malay Peninsula. Some of the top sights in Penang are the Blue Mansion and Khoo Kongsi in George Town, Tropical Spice Market and Penang National Park in Teluk Bahang, and the Kek Lok Si Temple in Air Itam & Penang Hill.
Ferries will take you from George Town to Butterworth on mainland Malaysia. You can also take the train from Butterworth to Kuala Lumpur or the plane from Penang Island to Kuala Lumpur.
Penang has a tropical rainforest climate with temperatures routinely in the 70s and 80s year round and high humidity. April to May and August to November are the rainiest months of the year with peak rainfall in September and October. While it may rain many days in a month, the rain showers are usually relatively quick and in the late afternoon. Penang's proximity to Sumatra, Indonesia makes it susceptible to haze from Sumatra's forest fires from April to June.
December and January is peak tourist season in Penang. May and October is low season but with less crowds and much better prices. Though you will probably see plenty of rain and gray skies, the heat is also less oppressive in between the rain showers. The best time to visit is late November to early December and February when the weather is fairly comfortable and you can avoid peak prices and tourists during the holiday season.
