Cheap Flights to Penang

With some of the best food and beaches in Malaysia, and where modern Asia is juxtaposed with culture in the historic capital George Town, Penang sure ticks a lot of boxes for the holidaymaker. An island state off the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia, the name Penang is derived from the betel nut that was once in abundance on its sandy beaches. One might say you would be a nut not to visit this exotic locale, but all we want to do is help you find a cheap flight to Penang.

About Penang

Also know as the 'Pearl of the Orient', Penang is a popular holiday destination for local Malays as well as international visitors thanks in part to a year-round tropical climate (complete with monsoons from April to September) as well as its reputation for serving some of the best street or hawker food in the world. Highlights include the nooks and crannies below the skyscrapers of historic George Town; the busy vibe of Beach Street; and the architecture of buildings like the the Kapitan Keling Mosque. Off the coast, enjoy the jungle trails (and even a spa treatment)on the Isle of Jerejak (Pulau Jerejak). Food-wise, try everything! For more information, read our destination guide to Malaysia.
