About Us

We've gone free! From June 2015 onwards, we are now entirely gratis; you can read us online or find our magazines here. Our new direction promises to be more dynamic and responsive in order to trigger discussion on significant issues that concern Penang and Malaysia.

Running since 2010, first as a newsletter before it evolved to its current state, Penang Monthly seeks to be the voice of Penang and an aspiring read for the curious Malaysian. Publishing articles concerning the well-being and good folks of Penang, we also run interesting national – and occasionally regional – analysis on politics, economy, culture and society.
