Explore the hidden charms of Penang island on this round the island trip traversing through traditional fishing villages, idyllic beaches, lush green rainforests, ocean scenic views, rolling hills and agricultural lands.

Along the way we’ll stop at the enchanting Tropical Spice Garden, learn how Malaysian batik is made at the Penang Batik Handicraft centre and visit the world class insect and butterfly farm, Entopia.

We will have a light lunch at a nearby seafood village before travelling through hilly terrains of rainforest, fruit and spice plantations. Along the way we’ll stop at a roadside fruit stand, if you wish to buy some local fresh fruit to take back to your hotel.

We will then head to the agricultural township of Balik Pulau, which in Malay literally means “the back of the island.” On the west side of this laid back township is a long stretch of coastline and rice fields with stunning views of the sunset from the opposite surrounding hills. We will have a sightseeing tour of Balik Pulau and visit some local points of interest.
