  take it easy in first couple of days. Seriously!!
by mccrorj

Please be aware of the heat if you are from the northern hemisphere, particularly if you are travelling in our winter. We had real problems with my 15 year old daughter who was flattened for the first couple of days. Please build in a period of acclimatisation when you arrive and take heed of the warnings to keep drinking water. I have travelled in north africa and the med and have never experience heat like it. If your like us many of the locals will offer this advice when you arrive. Drink lots of water and take it easy for the first few days. Penang hill is definitely to be tried on your first day off the plane from europe in the middle of feb, please take my word for it. If you are going to spend a couple of days by the pool make sure its days one and two.
