We booked a long weekend away to Penang (not knowing anything about the Island and having not even heard of Georgetown before) but on a whim to meet up with family whilst they were travelling. What a fab surprise we were in for! I utterly loved our time in Penang and cannot stop recommending it to others.
We booked a quick weekend escape to HCMC in August 2016 - knowing full well that such a vibrant city would require more time than a weekend allows for. But given how easy of an escape from Singapore it was, we shall certainly be making a return visit soon!
