Penang is so beautiful. As an UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, Penang almost seems like an escape from the bustling city life to a new world across the sea. Blessed with mesmerising mountain landscapes encircling preserved colonial buildings, Penang is destined to lift your heart with joy and enchantment.

 

Penang Hill : Ride 833-metre uphill to the oldest British Hill station in Southeast Asia, on the world's steepest funicular tunnel track and appreciate the surrounding sights of teeming flora, wild faunas and sounds of the breeze. The hill encompasses numerous interesting historical landmarks amongst which includes the Bel Retiro Bungalow, a resort used for reputable government officials and guests, Sri Aruloli Thirumurugan Hindu Temple, the Hill Mosque and a 250-year-old cannon. Take a break at the Kopi Hutan (Forest Coffee Cafe) as you immerse yourself in the heart of a tranquil rainforest while sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee or soothing lavender tea. Ascend to the main viewing deck and Sky Walk to admire the spectacular panoramic views of Penang city.

 

Kek Lok Si Temple: More than just a temple, the facade is also a clan house for the Chinese sharing the same surname. The temple is the most magnificent and finest Buddhist temple in southeast Asia. It is comprised of a seven-storey pagoda and structures adorned with intricate Chinese octagonal base, Thailand middle tiers craftsmanship and Burmese spiral dome architecture, inspired by religious beliefs and philosophy. Adding to the temple's heavenly beauty is the lush mountainscape that envelopes it.

 

Penang ESCAPE Adventureplay Theme Park : Escape into the wet and wild at the the first environment friendly theme park in Malaysia. Here, you can unleash on your inner Tarzan crossing obstacle courses in the air by a rope at the Monkey Business, descent from the hilltop into cooling pool of the world's longest water slide, jumping off platforms at dizzying heights or getting the thrills of zip lining and colorful tubby slides. The ESCAPE Waterplay and Adventureplay provides an exhilarating outdoor experience that is enjoyable for children and adults alike.
