    Sumit's 4 days trip to Penang

    4 star hotel with good name was provided on the recommendation of the agent. When we reached hotel they were not ready to provide room before their check in time of 3pm. On the last day hotel power supply outage was there and we had to be without electricity for about 5 hours in the midnight. Really bad experience. Trip was ok, points were ok city tour could have been more.

    Prasun's 5 days trip to Penang

    I am quite happy with the trips and all around management of the same. Most of the things were good with few exceptions and that might be because of some lack of knowledge from my side or their side but still overall experience is good. Anjali - with whom we planned our trip was nice, coordinating and humble throughout the trip and even at onsite destination she was regularly in touch. Malaysia local tourist agency was also very professional and supportive. Pick-up, drop, local guiding, behavior, in all spheres they maintained their decency. So on gathering all the points on the scale of 10, I will give them 7.5. Langkawi hotel , Bella Vista, its sea side view and location in the city with all around facilities including Indian restaurant nearby for food gives us good experience there.

    Penang experiences hot and humid climate all year round, but it is suggested that you visit Penang between December and March to experience a fairly cool climate condition.

    The climate is humid on the beaches and it is therefore suggested that you wear comfortable cotton clothes. Keep hats and sunglasses to beat the sunlight and don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes with proper grip to add convenience to your trekking experience.

    Along with the recreational activities like trekking, climbing, swimming and wildlife observation, you can enjoy opportunities for research and education.
