Hi! I'm Amanda and this is my son Remy.

We moved to Penang in 2016 when Remy was just 10 months old. When we arrived things were different – there were very few Facebook groups for expats, and there were a lot fewer activities available, so we struggled to find things to do which is what ultimately inspired me to publish the original Penang Kids Guide magazine.

Now that there are so many schools, activities, shops, unique places to go, and resources available, I wanted to create the ultimate online guide for everything kid-related in Penang. Well almost everything… this guide was formulated with expats in mind so all of the schools, activities, etc. are English language based but I do hope that this proves to be a helpful resource to all Penangites!

Many images used have been taken from Facebook or other public social media sites but we will happily take down any photo for any reason! Please just contact us.

Because it takes a village...
