Kuala Lumpur was like a stopover and pit stop on the way to and out of Penang. But we made good visiting some sites in KL and checking out a couple of recommended restos by a local. And Penang may be warmer πŸ₯΅ but certainly more interesting! We had a leisurely holiday but managed to cover as much ground as we could.

Going (Eating) Peranakan

City Hall of Penang

How we managed despite the high temps and humidity? A good, leisurely breakfast at the hotel, out by 10am to hit the Museums/Mansions/Temples πŸ•ŒπŸ•πŸ«, lunch, back to the hotel🏩 by 2-3pm to rest πŸ’€, out again by 5pm to hunt for street art πŸ–Ό and check out the jetties ⛡️, dinner then back to hotel 🏨 . For an even better appreciation and comfortable travel though, go during cooler months. December and January should be good months to visit. And soon! Many street art installations are in serious need of repair and restoration. Enjoy! πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£
