  2. The Best Time to Visit Penang Penang is a tropical paradise that enables you to enjoy a warm climate throughout the year and soak plenty of sunshine as well. However, the surrounding sea and wind system affects the local climate, bringing heavy rains, winds and a phenomenon known as the haze, especially during the monsoon season. So, it is better to avoid the monsoon season which is typically from August to November. Penang weather remains warm and enjoyable during the rest of the year, especially between December and February, which are also the driest months here. Travelers should consider taking flights to Penang around Christmas, New Year’s Day and Chinese New Year, which are also the best time to visit the Malaysian Island.
