i feel penang has more local characteristic~ there are more places to visit as well~ go malacca only if you intend to drive since its not very far~

Depend on what you like?
Melaka is a historic place, so main attractions are those historical building.
Penang has more attractions like theme park, farm, temple, penang hill etc..

Then I'd choose Penang, more sights to visit and more food to eat.

Unless you're like me, who can spend a whole week in Melaka not exactly doing what tourists normally do, but just relac-relac walk along the streets, explore here and there, walk the malls and shop whatever I see, eat along the way. Buy things don't need to worry luggage overweight...

People find Melaka boring after 3 days, but I love Melaka whenever I visit on working/schooling days.

Both are equally interesting, for sightseeing and the food, though Penang will be better for those who don't appreciate spending time at historical sights.

I plan Melaka 3days, 4th day go KL.
Day 3 already very boring.

Penang a lot better but I went 2nd time without much planning, get boring and don't know where to go.
