Visit, Discover & Enjoy Penang, and Everywhere Else!

Hello and welcome to Penang Travel Tips, the guide to visit, discover and enjoy everything about Penang, and my personal online encyclopedia of the world!

B. Melayu

My name is Timothy Tye, or simply Tim. Because of this website, people call me "Mr Penang." Penang Travel Tips is my own online encyclopedia of Penang and everywhere else on earth. This website has a Sight Directory of Penang listing 3607 Penang sights, a Business Directory of Penang listing 202 types of businesses in Penang, and a Street Directory listing 797 streets in Penang. And that's not all. Also within this website is an online, audio-enabled Penang Hokkien Dictionary with over 5,500 words.

The Penang Travel Tips website was started on 26 July, 2008, when I relocated my Penang content from my earlier site, AsiaExplorers. Over time however, more and more non-Penang content was moved across to be housed here. As of 22 March, 2017, it has 20,018 pages and receives some 2,000,000 page views per month. On 1 September 2017, I split this website into two, with non-Penang content gradually moved to my new Timothy Tye website. As of 12 November, 2017, all my Asia content has been moved, with relocation of non-Asia content planned for a later date.

Penang Travel Tips was created for one purpose: to satisfy my curiosity about the world around me, but it has since grown to become my personal encyclopedia. The information found here goes back to 2003 and has been updated numerous times. Every page is built like a layer cake, with information added to it through countless updates. The result is a body of knowledge that has become a useful source of reference material not only for casual tourists, but also by the locals, students, teachers, journalists, just about anybody seeking fast information about Penang and elsewhere.

Why I support the Penang Transport Master Plan

As a Penangite and a concerned citizen, I have been following the development between the Penang State Government and Penang-based Non-Governmental Organisations with regards the Penang Transport Master Plan. Here, I want to share with you why I support the Penang Transport Master Plan.

 Getting to know Penang

Of the almost 20,000 pages on this website, some 7,000 is about Penang and just Penang. So, that's a lot about Penang to discover. Administratively, Penang State is divided into five main districts called the Northeast District (Daerah Timur Laut), Southwest District (Daerah Barat Daya), North Penang Mainland (Seberang Perai Utara), Central Penang Mainland (Seberang Perai Tengah) and South Penang Mainland (Seberang Perai Selatan). To help you find your way, I have grouped the places in Penang by the following major towns.

Penang is famous as a street food destination, so I am often asked, what I like to eat. Since this same question is being repeated to me over and over, I decided to create a page to answer it, so that I never have to do it in person ever again!
