I am planning a trip to SEA in August. On the way from KL to Bangkok, I want to spend some time in Georgetown, which is high on my list. But I would also like to do some jungle trekking. Reading the forum, it seems that Penang is not a particularly good place for that, but Langkawi is. Can someone confirm this or is there not much difference?
Problem is I don't have much time to spend on the islands, maybe 4 nights only. I understand there is the National Park on Penang too, but some people say it is not really good for jungle trekking. Now I am wondering if I should take the ferry to Langkawi for one night perhaps and get some jungle experience there or stay in Penang for the whole time and go to the National Park instead. I am not interested in beaches, so I would only visit Langkawi for the jungle experience. Is it worth it or will I be able to see similar places in Penang?
