Penang, a state in northern Malaysia was a hidden gem until 2011. It was an island well known as a tourist spot. Its history, culture, people and food are one of the best in South East Asia, if not Asia. What is not well known is that Penang is also a great place to stay long term or retire.
Penang burst into the best countries to retire scene when it was placed top 10 consistently since 2011 by many retirement magazines and websites. It is not only a place to retire but a place to stay on a long-term basis. Many young expatriates working in Asia chose Penang as their home base for travelling around Asia. Retirees finds this place inexpensive yet rich in culture and heritage. Penang offers world-class healthcare yet it is also very affordable. Its friendly residents are living together harmoniously amidst diverse culture, religion and beliefs. It is a place where modern infrastructure juxtaposes with its colonial heritage. It has all the modern conveniences yet you can still find people practising crafts of olden days or religious cermonies that you think were lost in this modern world. It is this paradox that made Georgetown (capital of Penang) a very interesting UNESCO World Heritage site. You will be amazed on what you can do here and what you will find here.
Penang beckons to be discovered and rediscovered by those who yearns new experiences or a new perspective of life.
