The Perhentian Islands by Julian Chokkattu

After Penang, we took an overnight bus to Terrengganu, from where we hopped on a speedboat to the beautiful Perhentian Island. The islands aren't that crowded, at least when we went, which was a plus. We had a few areas to ourselves while we were there. If you're traveling to Malaysia, the Perhentian Pulau is a must.

We also rented an underwater camera for when we went snorkeling (Note: Some of those photographs are taken by my brother).

Penang by Julian Chokkattu

Penang, a small island state in Malaysia, is located off the northwest coast of the mainland. We took a two hour bus ride to get to Georgetown, and grabbed a ferry to Penang. The state is heavily urbanized and is known for its street art.DSC_1425 DSC_1435
