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.
