TRAVELLERS' TIPS

Travellers to Penang are advised to be properly hydrated by drinking enough water. The average day time temperature in Penang is about 32 C although it can feel hotter due the humidity. August to October in George Town tends to be cooler in the evenings due to occasional rain. It's good to have an umbrella with you! A hat and loose fitting clothes is most comfortable in the tropics.
