    Penang is a city that deserves far more time than one day. A few days in Penang is enough to fall in love with Malaysia. With only one day to burn, one needs to get a bit of the culture in and Kek Lok Si Temple is absolutely worth a visit. This Chinese Temple is on the outskirts of town, and the best way to visit it would be using the public transport of Malaysia.

    The buses here are cheap and well-kidnapped and economical. This temple is famous for its Ten Thousand Buddhas which are lovingly placed throughout the grounds. The temple has a great feel and is absolutely huge. Checking https://www.redbus.my for online bus tickets is highly recommendable.

    Now who doesn’t love a happy turtle? Literally hundreds live alongside the monks of Kek Lok Si. Ever the peaceful creatures, this turtle community are adored by all the visitors and they’re a wonderful sight as you step into the grounds.

    Ready for some Adventure?
    The few hours spent at Escape Adventure land Penang are likely to rank as some of the most thrilling and emotionally-charged moments of your life. After all, hurtling speedily through the open air, dozens of feet off the ground, is pretty memorable. A park specializing in zip-lining (or, as Australians call it, flying foxes), there are other fun activities here including a free fall from a 20m jump platform, an inner-tube slide and tree rope swing.

    All of us have been to the best of museums. But have you ever come across an interactive museum? I don't think so...The Made in Penang Interactive Museum really helps shake off pre-existing ideas of boring, outdated museums, instead offering visitors a fun, exciting way to view artwork with exhibits that have clever 3D imagery features. For example, a portrait of the Penang Snake Temple, with a large 3D snake slithering out from the framework.

    Penang (and Malaysia on the whole) has the most sensational Indian food. Authentic Tandoor ovens, steaming hot masala chai and mouth-watering rich curries finished off my one day in Penang perfectly.
