    Sundara's 7 days trip to Penang

    We asked for few tourist spot near the suggested itenary but was not acknowledged at all. Also the driver could have been more flexible on the timing rather than instructing us to get dropped at the airport five hrs before the departure time to avoid traffic. The driver was polite and friendly thou
    gh except for the fact of being strict n non accommodative for exploration even though we were on time throughout the trip. Hotel is in outskirts and breakfast wasn't that great spread of indian cuisine. Unfortunately pongal on all days of our stay and few items are below the mark in taste. The nearby metro station was our savior to travel to the heart of city for dinner and don't forget to include the metro ticket fares to your Itenary budget. Overall good and safe trip to Malaysia especially with kids. Melaka was exceptional and the jet skiing at port Dickson was mind blowing. The cable car offered by the operator at genting Highland was totally new to us.
