    I love jazz! Too bad I'm quite tied down with work in December or else I'd certainly make a trip to Penang.

    Depends on what "limited budget" means... we have 3, 4 and 5 star beach hotels plus we also have budget hotels. You can check out Tunes Hotel located right in Georgetown for budget and there are a few here in Batu Ferringhi and Tanjung Bungah. Check out Tanjung Bungah Hotel as its quite reasonable. December is peak season for Penang hotels and even 4-star hotels like Golden Sands and Holiday Inn are charging at least RM400++ per night...

    PM me if you need recommendations and I can give you more tips.

    My friend, you can fly into Penang and out on Firefly which operate from Subang Airport... 4 flights each way every day. Of course, there's Air Asia and Jetstar and SilkAir too...

    Most of the events are free except for the main event i.e. "Jazz By The Beach" RM58 Free Standing at The Bayview Beach Resort Gardens on 5th and 6th and you can see 12 different Jazz Bands play over 2 days...

    Hint: If you had watched Counter #7136 you would be celebrating... and its not too late too, the 'frying' is still a long way to go brader!
