About this blog On Penang

About this blog On Penang

Hello there, and thank you for popping by! Officially launching in summer 2024, On Penang is a comprehensive travel blog dedicated to the Malaysian island of Penang.

Run by British couple Jenny Lynn and Jason Lynn who currently live in Penang, this is your go-to guide to get the most out of your visit to Penang with suggested activities, accommodation, eateries and itineraries.

Jenny and Jason first visited Penang back in 2007 when they travelled overland (and sea) from the UK to Australia without a plane and instantly fell in love with the island’s fusion of cultures, mouthwateringly good food, tropical vibe, and welcoming locals. They found themselves returning time and time again over the years, and in 2024, Jenny and Jason applied for a De Rantau visa (digital nomad visa) and moved to Penang their two children (aged 8 and 10).

Through this travel blog, Jenny and Jason hope to inspire you and provide you with all the practical information you need to visit Penang, Malaysia. From where to find the street art around George Town, to where to rent kayaks, and the best rooftop bars to the best beaches, we’ve got you covered!

Jenny and Jason work as professional travel bloggers and On Penang is the fourth travel blog they have launched since 2016. Other travel blogs include TraveLynn Family, Peak District Kids, and Explore Essaouira.
