Upon arrival to Penang Island, we first visited Kek Lok Si Temple at Air Itam. After lunch at the Kek Lok Si Vegetarian Restaurant, it was time to check in to our hotel, The Paradise Sandy Beach Resort in Tanjung Bungah (Cape of Flowers). Along the way we pass by this area. The skies are bright and sunny now.
I looks like there is a lot of development going on in Penang Island. There seem to be more skyscrappers here than in Klang city and they look brand new. Traffic was quite heavy but there were no massive jams. I have visited Penang Island during public holidays and weekends in the past, and the traffic jams were terrible. A trip meant for relaxation had become very stressful then.
It is great to travel offpeak, i.e. Dec 8-10. It was just before The Flower Festival and Dragon Boat Races would started on Dec 11th. Every year, there is also the Pesta Festival and Year End Celebrations which attract a lot of visitors to this island.
