Penang: Family Holiday
Pearl of the Orient
Many of the larger coastal hotel resorts are ideal for a family holiday in Penang. Some offer 'kids clubs' to keep their younger guests entertained. Penang Island offers a multitude of activities to keep the whole family entertained, from a wide range of water sports, to shopping, markets, zoos, botanic gardens, the butterfly farm and a even a toy museum. The major downside to a family holiday in Penang is that it's a long flight for younger children. It's worth bearing in mind that April to November has the highest rainfall, so it might not be the best choice for an Easter or summer holiday, but perfect for a Christmas holiday (although prices rice steeply around this time).
