What You Could Get in Penang for $10 – Enjoy the View of Penang from the Top at Penang Hill

First of all, I would like to apologize for the late post of this week’s $10 series. It’s not that I wasn’t aware of this, because I really was. It’s just that the circumstance didn’t let me publish this post on time.

I was planning to come back home from Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday, only for me to find out that I booked the wrong flight which departed earlier in the morning. As a result, I got panic, I had to extend my stay for one more night and buy a new return ticket. All those things, with a lot of things to do work-wise.

But here I am… Back to the $10 series, as now we’ve got Priyanka of On My Canvas to share with you how to spend $10 in one of the cities that I visited recently, Penang.

Not So Thrilled at Penang Hill

Last year, I was still on probation in April and the situation forced me to just stay in Penang for 2 days for Sya’s wedding as I was asked to be one of her bridesmaids. But since it was my first time in Penang, I thought that I still had to go somewhere that was not just the wedding to see what’s in there.

So this classic rookie who barely knows how to read a map eventually made some mistakes on her first visit in Penang.

So I booked the hostel around Georgetown area and after talking to this cute girl who was my Uber driver, she told me that I should have booked a hotel around Little India as places to visit can be reached by walking distance.

In my defense though, there are way too many Georgetown villas and hotels that are way too good to miss as options there.

However, being positive as I rarely am (lol), I decided that maybe it’s just a sign to revisit Penang someday to see more parts of the city.
