About Us

Living in Penang is a resource site that wants to prepare foreigners who are interested in coming to live in Penang, Malaysia with an awesome resource, to help people get settled quickly and to get the most out of their time on this great island.

Most of the information has been gathered by two American families.  By no means do we believe we know everything there is to know about this city, so if you have updated information please add them to comments or email us and we will be glad to validate and incorporate your input.
