Penang is a small island, covering a mere 293 square kilometres. 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.
You don’t have to be superfit to enjoy Penang’s natural beauty. From Entopia– a world class butterfly farm, sanctuary and learning centre to the jungle walking trail of The Tropical Spice Garden, or experience the rainforests at The Habitat to name a few.
