Diving in Penang
Penang doesn't offer a good diving quality, being its waters quite murky. It means that all the boats go to Pulau Payar, 2hs away north of Penang (see Langkawi). Still in 2010 Pulau Payar didn't have much to offer: all the corals had been bleached and there was little marine life.
Travel to Penang
Penang is an island off the northwestern coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Penang's beaches are nice, though a little lackluster when compared to those in some other Malaysian states, but this is more than compensated for by the island's rich multicultural history which is full of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and European influences. Penang is also well known for being the "food paradise" of Malaysia.
Georgetown is the capital of the island and state of Penang, on the west coast of peninsular Malaysia. It was listed by UNESCO in 2008 as a World Heritage Site, together with fellow former Straits Settlement, Melaka.
Today, the town is known for its well-preserved colonial core, with original shophouses dating from the 19th century to the 1930's still surviving, together with their trades of old. Street markets and hawkers continue to be a part of daily life, and the atmosphere is often likened to that of Singapore back in the 1960's and 1970's.
Like Langkawi, Penang doesn't offer a good diving quality, being its waters quite murky. It means that all the boats go to Pulau Payar, 2hs away north of Penang (see Langkawi). Still in 2010 Pulau Payar didn't have much to offer: all the corals had been bleached and there was little marine life.
