Taiwan was the first gem I found, Chiang Mai the second, and Penang seemed to have the best of both worlds. The only things that is missing is the organic sustainable community of Chiang Mai Thailand. Still the Pros outweigh the cons and Chiang Mai digital nomads are getting a brief taste during their Thai Visa runs. My plan was to stay a month with a roommate from Chiang Mai and we did. It was a great stay and I’m sure I will be back. Listen to what I have to say about “Why Penang.”
I’m back to Chiang Mai after traveling on a world tour that took me to Singapore, Bangkok, Penang, Johannesburg, and Capetown. In this podcast world tour 2017 I share gems from each destination from food, getting around, co-working , and local areas I stayed. I took my filming gear and shot from amazing footage of the modern singapore skyline in marina bay to the beautiful postcard views of Capetown’s Table mountain.
I stayed in modern condos in Penang, a penthouse in Penang, and a unique estate in Houghton, the neighborhood of Nelson Mandela and another past South African president.
I ate world class xiao long bao, dumplings, noodles to delicious rump and fillet steaks in South Africa. The amazing wines in Capetown South Africa from the sauvingnon blanc in Constantia and stellenbosch. Listen and watch to learn more.
