Apart from soaking up the sun at some of Penang Island’s lovely beaches, there are numerous tourist attractions to see. Rapid Penang busses cover an extensive network, but are slow and at peak times can get very crowded. There is far greater freedom with a hire car and one can be flexible according to the mood and the weather, of what one wants to do on a sunny day in Penang!
Tourists with a taste for the oriental delights of Penang’s restaurants and food stalls will regard George Town, the capital, as a gourmet’s paradise. Penang Road, with its glittering colours at night and its plethora of fine dining opportunities is one of the highlights of a trip to the island.
For day trips by hire car from Hertz Penang International Airport there are a huge number of opportunities. George Town itself is a UNESCAO World Heritage site. Its many colourful street artists’ performances, the many religious and cultural festivals that are held throughout the year and the sheer inexhaustible number of splendid buildings, temples, pagodas, gardens and picturesque country walks that Penang Island has to offer make car hire an essential part of a holiday in this part of Malaysia.
Eating lok-lok (skewered seafood, meat and vegetables) straight from a street vendor’s stall or watching them prepare ikan bakar, barbecued fish marinated in colourful spices and coconut milk, then wrapped in banana leaves and grilled over hot, gleaming coals, by the sandy beaches is a marvellous way to get to know the country and its people.
There are many opportunities to work off the calories by going hiking in the hills, playing golf on one of the many golf courses or participating in the many water sports on offer at the beaches.
Going shopping in George Town’s vibrant street markets is, of course, another way to burn off the fat! Having a sizeable hire car that can hold the many gifts and souvenirs is advisable…
