I would like to travel somewhere inside Malaysia. But it's rainy season. So I'm stick to three days holiday. But Penang would be crowded because of Buddhist processions. St Anne's Day is somewhere this month isnt it - it'll be crowded too with processions.

I live in the UK, so all the 'religious' public holidays we have are Christmas and Easter. I put 'religious' in inverted commas, since what religious significance there was for Christians on those holidays has been stifled by commercialism.
