We love Malaysia and especially Penang. My wife and I travel with our 2 children who are 9 & 7 so travelling where we feel safe is our biggest concern.
Between me and my wife we have been to Bali over 15 times and travelled to Thailand a couple of times. My wife has spent years travelling through Europe and I have travelled the west Coast of the USA.
Why do we love Penang? Numerous reasons but the main one is that we feel safe. We stopped going to Bali when we had children. For us the past events that occurred in Bali are reasons enough not to go there again. I know it can happen anywhere but twice in the same place was too much.
In Malaysia you can get your money changed without having to worry about being short changed, you can eat the food down any side street without risking getting ill and drink the water out of the ta
The food is exceptional, if you enjoy Asian cuisine, my mouth starts watering a month before we leave. Malay, Chinese, Thai and Indian food to name a few.
