Want to see the wilderness side of this beautiful tropical island?
Covering only 293 square kilometres with most part of the island densely populated, you can still experience its natural beauty with tropical rainforest on granite hilly terrain, coastline and beaches, farmlands and local villages.
Although it is densely populated along the east and north coast, it remains relatively untouched along the west coast with lush rainforests thanks to its year round tropical climate.
There is much to explore during your visit to Penang island. From taking a leisurely stroll along Batu Ferringhi Beach dotted with international seaside resorts, to trekking through the national parks and cooling down at one of the beaches or waterfalls, to a furnicular tram ride up to Penang Hill for its cooler climate and spectacular views of George Town, Penang has so much to offer.
