Pearl of the Orient.

Two weeks ago we decided to go a little exploring and set off for Penang Island which is to the northwest of K.L. The highways in Malaysia are fantastic and there are NO potholes!! The drive took a few hours. It was lovely to get out of the city and into the countryside. The building and development that is taking place wherever you go in Malaysia is amazing. The Government offers a great progamme to encourage ex-pats to invest and live here called" My Second Home" and Penang is a favourite destination.
Georgetown is the capital and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has a rich history and has been used as an important trade centre. To get to the island you have to cross a 13.5 kilometre long bridge.Add Image
