Island Hopping from Phuket to Penang

Plan Your Travel - Island Hopping from Phuket to Penang

The first couple of weeks of this 4-week trip to Malaysia involved island hopping from Phuket to Penang, stopping off in between in Langkawi. Despite their close proximity to each other, these are 3 very different types of island. Phuket is quite commercial, whereas Langkawi is much less-developed and laid-back. Penang is culturally the most diverse of the three. Something for everyone, then  🙂   Be sure to first check out our Plan, Maps and Budget for this 4-week round trip.
