Penang in August?


I will be in KL during August and was wondering if going to Penang is worth it.

Would Penang be crowded? What is the temp. and will it be raining? How does it compare to Bali, Langkawi, Phuket?
How long would it take to go to Penang from KL by train or bus?
Any recommended accomodations, advice, or expectations?

Is there a better place than Penang for beaches and snorkeling?

Penang is a great place but I wouldn't visit in August unless you can put up with heavy downpours. Its rainfall then is double that of KL. However, you would still get a fair amount of sun and the temp is in the low 30s.And if you are in KL anyway it would be a shame to not try another destination nearby. It is certainly a beautiful destination with many interesting sites.The beaches are not the greatest as there are a lot of jelly fish- Langkawi would probably be better for that.The rainfall in Langkawi is similar to Penang.
