Default going to Penang for a month

wish to go to Penang Malaysia from London for about a month. would it be
feasible to rent a flat for that time or would it be best to get flight and
then find a hotel when there. Or are there any specific packages (ie
flight and hotel combined) worth considering for a whole month.

any recommendations please gratefully received. thanks

For one month only it will probably make sense to stay in a hotel. BTW
one month is too much for Pinang. Your time would be better invested if
you only spent a few days in Pinang and spent the rest travelling across
Malaysia.

Depends on what your interests are. Malaysia has nice beaches, nature
(many national parks), a few historical sites (mainly Pinang and
Melaka), mountains.

If you are coming to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, you can stay in a resort
for only USD65.00 nett per night, but must be for 7 nights, full
kithcen and 2 bedroom, hall , 2 bath for 6 person.

For USD 65/night you can stay in a four star hotel in KL - no minimum
stay requirements.
