Malacca and Penang (George Town) are two of the most talked about places in Malaysia. They are renown for the cuisine and both are listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. They have incredible street art yet it’s crazy how each city has such a different vibe.
Going off my own experiences I feel like Penang is way more fun for young people as it has more bars and a better night life. Whereas Malacca has more of a romantic feel to it as it has such a beautiful canal which you can walk down at night. SO ROMANTIC.
The food in both cities is to die for although to be honest I think I’m slightly bias towards Penang as I spent a lot more time there.
Both places should be visited, you will not regret it!
Here’s a short clip of my time in Malacca.
