Cosmopolitan and exciting with a distinct exotic buzz, Penang gives you old-world Asia with its Chinese shophouses and trishaws plying its street-art smothered George Town that is Penang's main city and urban center. You will find palm-fringed beaches; rustic fishing villages and cheaper living costs than say Kuala Lumpur. A Malaysian state sitting on the peninsular by the Malacca Strait, George Town founded in 1786 by the British is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Due to the diverse ethnicity living in Penang, there is a melting pot of languages spoken, religious beliefs and culture to confound, confuse and amaze the interloper.

With blue joss smoke wafting the air, coworking in Penang known as the "Silicon Valley of the East" draws laptop-totting nomads from around the globe to its shores. Local business professionals invade coworking spaces with their perfect setups instead of setting up their own individual offices. Having a friendly vibe and a laid-back atmosphere, this is where you can have a balanced work slash lifestyle without the hassles and the expense of a big city. Also your commuting dramas for work are less with pedal power, foot power or grabbing a trishaw being the accepted mode of transport.

Startups in Penang have a buffer to test ideas, unlike in large competitive markets where they can just get gobbled up. Budding entrepreneurs have a learning platform with a strong base in hardware and manufacturing that have drawn many multinationals such as Intel and Hewlett Packard to its shores. Over recent years there has been an increase in interest from overseas startups and investors to look at Penang in a new light with its now dynamic ecosystem and supportive government.

Penang is a playground for creative people and tech startups to collaborate and rub shoulders.
