Believe it or not, I am one of a handful of Singaporeans who rarely explores Malaysia as a travel destination; I can count the number of times I’ve travelled across the Causeway on one hand.
Anyway, when Traveloka, an online travel e-commerce site in Southeast Asia, invited me to check out their flights and hotels from Singapore to Malaysia and Indonesia, curiosity got the better of me and I did a quick search on their flights from Singapore to Penang for the month of June. Holy smokes! A one-way airline ticket goes as low as RM 82! What have I been doing all these long weekends?
So, I’ve decided to do something different this time: instead of chronicling all the places I’ve travelled to, I’ve created a travel bucket list of all the things I want to check out if ever I hop on a quick 1.5 hour flight from Singapore to Penang.
