We booked our flights to Malaysia when we’d decided that we needed to have a break from travelling and go home, at least for a little while. Instead of exploring Kuala Lumpur and Batu Pahat as planned, we spent the majority of the time scouring the internet for a flight back to the UK and begging for our old jobs back. Nevertheless, our stay in Penang was just what we needed. Time to think about our next steps and relax on a budget.
Here are our favourite sightseeing spots and how we managed to live comfortably on 15 GBP a day!
