The island of Penang has traditionally been a hub of trade and exchange between Asian countries; this means that the island is a cultural mixing pot, with a fusion of sights, sounds, tastes and smells from all over Malaysia. The cities in Penang are fascinating but the region also has a host of charming fishing villages and beautiful beaches, lined with palm trees . Penang gives you an authentic flavour of Malaysia and invites you to immerse yourself within it.

While Hepatitis A, Typhoid and Tetanus jabs are advised when visiting Penang, contaminated water and food has been known to be a cause of other illnesses even when staying in all-inclusive resorts on the island.

The tropical nature of Penang also means that you need to be aware of mosquitos and take precautions to prevent their bites as they may be carrying malaria. If you’re planning on being away from the beaches and exploring the more rural areas instead, it’s recommended that you steer clear of mammals such as dogs and bats as they may be carrying rabies.
