There not many blogs about longstay travel in Penang. I have heard lots of people that they like Penang, but there are not many people staying and writing abut long stay in Penang and here. First inpresion on Penang is where China and India meet.


We have stayed in Maritimes suites in Jelugor 2-5km South of George Town and in Batu Feringhi By the Sea Condominium

My priorities for choosing place for longstay is quality condominium with a pool.

Penang Cafes In addition I enjoyed Smith coffee and Cafea Coffe which are both in Maritime

Food in George Town

Food #2 by CNN with a map

My Personal best dish: Tiger Char Koay Teow @ Kafe Ping Hooi (Youtube)

Penang or Chiang Mai for digital nomad? (my winner: Chiang Mai)


KL VisaRun hotel / Nilai Springs Resort

As we had to do our visarun, we have chosen to fly to KL.

We chose the closest hotel to KL airport with the best pool.

The cost of taxi for round trip was 100 MYR (20 euros) 80 from airport to hotel and 20Myr from hotel to airport, getting a taxi with MyTeksi app

The food in hotel is terrible, better order FoodPanda delivered to your hotel.

The pools are amazing for kids:
