Photographer's Note

Penang to me is one of the most beautiful places in Malaysia. Trekking to Penang Hill in the morning already is quite an experience, with its temples and scenic view of Penang Sea. Imagine my surprise when I went to Penang Hill in the evening and this is what I saw. It's a view of the temple and surrounding establishments, including a traditional Malaysian restaurant.

Penang is about 40 minutes away by plane from the capital Kuala Lumpur. By land it's about 3-4 hours. From the airport, Penang Hill is a short 30-minute drive. Best time to visit is around 7:00 p.m. as Penang is known for early-evening sunsets.

Note: I was using a friend's camera in taking this photo, which did not have a credible night scenery setting. Just the same, what made this difficult was that we did not have a tripod!
