PenangSome of the most famous natural attractions at this tropical paradise include the sandy strips of Tanjung Bungah and the panoramic views from atop the Penang Hill.

Summer temperatures in Penang are uncomfortably high and most of the annual rainfall occurs during the period which can play a spoiler to plans for holidays.
