"Join the rich and famous as you dive into the slick city life of Hong Kong before visiting the Malaysian state of Penang, where rich culture and natural beauty collide."

Defined by a glorious skyline set against green-capped mountains, Hong Kong is visually astounding. At times chaotic and overwhelming, the city is an incredibly exciting destination. Penang offers a different experience entirely, centred around the bustling city of George Town with its beautiful colonial architecture.

Weather

Kowloon's subtropical climate means that winters are generally mild and summers are hot and humid. The peak time to visit is between October to the end of December, when temperatures comfortably arm and sunny and nights are pleasantly cool. The months of January through early March are cold and rainy, and March and April are very changeable. May to September sees hot, humid weather with plenty of rain, and the city is at risk of typhoons.   Penang’s equatorial climate means high heat, high humidity and high rainfall all year round. There are two main seasons – the dry season from December to March and the wet season from April to November. However, Malaysia is affected by two monsoon seasons so wet weather is always a possibility. Most people opt to visit Penang during the dry season, when rainfall and humidity are at their lowest.
