Reviewer: M Thompson
The itinerary was great, although I recommend that you pre-purchase the express line tickets for Penang Hill. Unfortunately, we hadn't while the other couple in our group did, we caused some confusion and delay. We ended paying extra so we didn't have to wait in line (would have literally hours).
