I am Winnie from Penang, West Malaysia. Penang, known as the `Pearl of the Orient', is one of Malaysia's better known tourist destinations, appreciated for its diverse collection of old world architecture, colourful nature attractions and plethora of delightful flavours.
Located 112km south of langkawi, the state consists of the island and a strip of land covering 760 sq km. on the mainland known as Province Wellesley. The mainland itself is a developing industrial area and acts as a gateway to neighbouring states. It is connected to the island by ferry service and the 13.5km Penang Bridge consider the 3rd longest bridge in the world.
