A trip to Penang, George Town and Batu Ferringhi


So far my husband and I have loved our choice of  travel destinations but this one has been our favourite. From food to people and site seeing a complete holiday is what you call when you discover another hidden Paradise away from home. There is plenty to see and do but let me take you to Batu Ferringhi which is  a suburb of George Town in Penang, Malaysia along the northern coast of Penang Island.

Its consists of a long stretch of soft, white sandy beach along a winding road named Jalan batu-ferringhiBatu Ferringhi, filled with a host of accommodation and dining options. Its night market is  well known. You can enjoy a range of water sports activities such as jet-skiing, parasailing and windsurfing.

Quick guide to most popular heritage not to miss while you are there.
