We didn't exactly know where to go for our belated honeymoon this year. All I knew is that it had to have a South-East Asian flavour. Numerous options were thrown our way from friends who recommended the beauty of Bali, the beaches of Thailand and even the jungles of Borneo.
When I mentioned this to my Malaysian-born Australian friend, she suggested we go to Penang. Langkawi and Kota Kinabalu were even thrown in the fold, but for some magnetic reason, Penang stood out.
Other than it being a tiny island off the Malaysian mainland, I didn’t know much about Penang. Based on the advice of my good friend, I booked our flights and started researching about Penang with the belief her word would be as good as my expectations and that we would have a great time.
