If you can, visit Penang during the month of April during the last lunar New Year celebration for the Hindu god Hanuman. The event is extremely loud and the party goes on all night. Locals parade the shrine of Hanuman around with priests who place flower wreaths on the shrine while smashing coconuts on the ground everywhere.
If you cannot visit during the festival, there is always beautiful street art, delicious food, turtle beaches, and hiking to the local lighthouses.
