Why people love Penang

At that time, I bought these two tickets during the discount period and made money! The ticket exchange process is very simple. Going to Penang Hill, the scenery is very beautiful, very suitable for walking with the family to take a look, relax on it, hungry, and there is a place to eat and drink cendol. It is great! 👍
Best, it's a lot of fun to go when there aren't many people. All we can try many times. Longest slide, tubby racer. That's all. all the places we can try. Slide him even all best2 and very challenging your courage. The staff are all very friendly! The food near the foodcourt was not very tasty. Not bad. Haha but food is not the main point to come here. Hehe. Invite more people to come. ???? hah one more time mco, he is there for 3 parts, adventureplay 10-2, gravityplay 1-6, waterplay 1-6. Jd who wants to come makesure come from the morning!
The venue is not too big, so the attractions are not particularly large. The pavilion will provide luminous pigments for visitors to create, adding a lot of fun. The staff on site are happy to take photos for tourists. In addition, there are not many visitors on the day, so you can take pictures as much as you want, and you are not afraid to hinder others. The process is very smooth and suitable for couples to visit here.
Best place to visit while you're in Penang!! The place is so well taken care of compared with the butterfly farm in Cameron Highland, and you can take tons of beautiful photos inside this butterfly farm. Do check the timetable for the interactive activities during your visit, where you can learn more about butterflies. Other than the butterflies, different species of insects and reptiles are also shown here. Definitely worth a visit no matter you are a kid or an adult!

We had a great time with Mr. Sam Lim, he shared great insights and life experience during the bicycle tour. Stops made: paddy fields, cow and buffalo farm, mangrove forest, organic farm, fishing village and my favorite Audi Dream Farm (🐴🐐🐰🦃🐔🐦🐠🌻🌻)

Top sights in Penang

Recognized as the culinary paradise of Malaysia, Penang has been a popular tourist destination for gourmands all over the world. George Town, its state capital, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers a plethora of unique things to do in Penang. The diverse food scene, along with its eccentric fusion of culture, showcases its international influence and traditional customs. With so many fun things to do in Penang, we have narrowed down the top 10 attractions you definitely shouldn’t miss:

Kek Lok Si Temple

Kek Lok Si Temple (Temple of Supreme Bliss), sitting atop the Crane Hill in Air Itam, is one of the most interesting places at Penang. The temple complex features an array of magnificent statues, grandiose pagodas and pavilions, historic shrines, landscaped gardens, souvenir kiosks, and the tortoise liberation pond. If you want to see the temple adorned by dangling lanterns that light up beautifully at night, it is best to visit during the Chinese New Year celebrations. You can also get a glimpse of the scenic views surrounding the temple when you take a ride via the inclined lift or the funicular railway to the hilltop.

Penang Hill

Situated along the outskirts of Air Itam, Penang Hill covers the following peaks: the Bukit Bendera (Flagstaff Hill), Bukit Laksamana, Government Hill, Tiger Hill, and the neighboring Western Hill, considered the highest point in the island of Penang. As you begin your journey, you can choose to hike from the botanical gardens, but it is recommended to take the famous funicular railway which is the highlight of any visit to the hill. Some popular attractions to visit in Penang Hill are The Bel Retiro, a heritage building considered the oldest bungalow made for the governor of Penang, and the Habitat, an eco-tourism park where you can enjoy an educational tour of the Malaysian rainforest, along with zip lines and a bridge walk.

Penang Hill Upper Station

The Penang Hill Upper Station is the tourist destination at the end of the funicular railway. The lush hilly forest top offers several ways to help you relax and enjoy the panoramic scenery of the George Town skyline and the Langkawi mountains. The Skywalk and the Skydeck are some of the most popular spots where you can see the breathtaking vistas and 360-degree views of the island while soaking in the cool breeze. Make sure to get the fast lane ticket on the tram ride to the Penang Hill Upper Station to avoid long queues, especially during weekends and public holidays.

Gurney Drive

Gurney Drive, located within George Town, is one of the most popular places to visit in Penang for its vibrant food scene at night, where seafront hawker centers, food courts, and high-end restaurants come to life. You can enjoy both the delectable street food and the luxurious cuisines, all while dining by the sea. Some of the must-try Penang food include laksa, satay, bak kut teh, char kway teow, pasembur, and rojak. After satisfying your cravings, you can opt to visit the historic temples along Gurney Drive such as the Dharmikarama Burmese Temple or the Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram Temple.
