Penang: Winter Sun
Pearl of the Orient
With January average daily highs of 32C, Penang, the spice isle off the west coast of peninsular Malaysia is ideal for a winter holiday. It’s the perfect island to escape to in the cold winter months. With an abundance of beautiful beaches, scenery, beguiling colonial and oriental architecture and glorious weather, a winter sun holiday in Penang ticks every box. Rainfall in Penang is at its lowest levels from December to February and therefore this is regarded as the best time to visit the island by many. Accordingly, prices can rise steeply during this period.
