Penang, Malaysia

Penang, Malaysia

After having visited Penang about three years ago on a Southeast Asia trip, I went back to the Malay island this November for a work trip. I was there for a week and we had a pretty tight schedule that didn’t allow for much personal shooting. When we went to George Town towards the end of the week, though, we stopped at this pretty fishermen’s beach and I shot a few frames on the Leica.

Southeast Asia – Part 4: Penang Island, Malaysia

In the morning of our last full day on Penang Island, we went hiking in «Taman Negara Pulau Pinang» (Penang National Park). The hike mainly led us through a jungle colored in more than fifty shades of green with weird sounds and exotic plants everywhere. It was beautiful and relaxing despite the heat and the numerous noisy Chinese tourists.
Later on in the day, we visited the «Kek Lok Si» temple, roughly 50 minutes by bus from Georgetown.

Southeast Asia – Part 3: Georgetown, Malaysia

We arrived in Butterworth super early in the morning after a terribly long bus ride. The city is the gateway to the island Penang, where we were headed. After waiting for around two hours, we could finally board the first ferry, which took us to Georgetown in roughly 15 minutes. We walked to our hostel, the House of Journey, and waited for another few hours. Luckily, we were allowed to check in early in the morning and sleep for a bit.

Southeast Asia – Part 2: Perhentian Islands, Malaysia

After a few relaxing days on Tioman, we took the boat back to Mersing and travelled northwards to Kuala Besut. Another ferry and we were on another wonderful island: Perhentian Besar, one of the two Perhentian Islands. A little bit more touristy than Tioman but nevertheless a great place to spend some days lying in the sun.

Southeast Asia – Part 1: Tioman Island, Malaysia

On July 1, I boarded a plane to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. My girlfriend had spent the last few months there as an exchange student. Now the time had come to spend a few weeks traveling through Southeast Asia. We spent the first few days in the capital, where I didn’t take a single photo (even though we came back for a few days at the end of our trip). So, fast forward to a few days later when, after quite a journey, we arrived on the paradisal island Tioman.
