    This is my first time to Habitat Penang Hill. It is absolutely amazing. We were both absolutely amazed with the views and soaking in the surrounding nature. The staff from the ticketing counter were all super friendly too and it just made the visit all that much better.

    One of the most visited places when visiting Penang. Really enjoy the iconic murals and historical buildings while looking for the street.

    We visited on a weekday and there were only a handful of kids besides ours. The place is clean & staff are friendly. The slides require long sleeve shirt & long pants + socks to ride .

    Came to Penang on holiday and stayed at Batu Ferringhi. While it was pretty crowded over the weekend, there was always a spot to put your things down and join in the fun on playing on the sand or jumping into the sea - the water was very warm and lovely. There is plenty of paid water sport activities to do however we did not participate in any of them and just enjoyed the sun and surf. Most pleasant and the beach was the best part of the holiday. Would like to come back and spend more days at Batu Ferringhi Beach.

    On our way to visit Gurney drive night market at Batu Feringghi, we visit this place as planned and this half an hour break worth it.

    There are numerous landmarks in Penang that are sights to behold. One of them is none other than the Floating Mosque of Tanjung Bungah. Situated along Tanjung Bungah’s stretch of beach, gives a 360-degree panoramic view of the sea.

    It’s the first mosque in the country to be built on the sea, with pillars and stilts supporting its majestic structure.Tanjung Bungah is pretty quiet when compared to its more touristy neighbors, Batu Feringghi, Gurney and Georgetown.

    Watching the boats on the sea near beach in evening make you will feel like its a picture from any fantasy novel. You will definitely love the scenic beauty of the place and peacefulness.

    You can’t miss Tanjung Bungah as the place is on the way to Batu Feringghi – just make sure you don’t forget to stop by and pay a visit.

    The visit was interesting to see the views over Georgetown and Butterworth, Avoid the run-down Belleview hotel as the restaurant was closed and would not even serve us a drink.

    This street are full of shop selling tourist sourvenir, drinks and food. but dont let that distract you from appreciating the history behind this street. This street is attributed to the Armenian Family that contributed to the development of george town including E&O hotel that was part of the heritage. at the end of this street there was Two famous street art ( 1 bicycle and another one a boy trying to reach for a fruit which sadly gave way to development).

    This is our third time here, prior to this the kids were toddlers and tweens. The place was previously just a butterfly farm. Alot of improvements after it was rebranded to Entopia. More insects and reptiles was on display with different types of “worlds” were made as part of the journey through the park.

    They also had friendly staff, Remy was exceptionally cool & simply awesome! He was fun and gave out alot of interesting facts to my teens. He managed to keep my teens interested by letting them touch a scorpion and spider web. He even took the time to explain in detail on the other insects and reptiles that he thought would interest us.

    The only set back is that, the place didn’t have anymore staff like Remy, the rest of the park left us with just simple facts on the information board to keep us interested.

    The temple that runs this wonderful experience charges nothing. However a few "enterprising touts" will charge anybody approaching a parking or entry fee.

    Challenge them in BM and you might avoid the "entry fee". Show them a Malaysian government ID and they'll run a mile. Basically these are scammers ruining an otherwise rather lovely place.

    A lot things have changed since I last came to Kek Lok Si Temple with my parents. Now it's my turn to come here with my children. We parked near the new tortoise pond although we could have driven up higher. Parking was RM3 for the first 3 hours. Had fun feeding the tortoises with green leafy vege bought at RM2 per stack. We didn't want to take the elevated lift to the Kuan Yin statue. Instead we walked up to the place with the pagoda. We tried to find our way up the pagoda, going in and out of various prayer halls and passing through beautiful floral gardens. We almost gave up at one point after finding ourselves back to square one despite walking all over. Thankfully, we finally found the way hidden on the right side of a huge deity statue. The left side of the statue led to a big souvenir shop and another ticketing counter for the elevated lift. Paid RM2 entry fee per person to go up the Ban Pho Tar pagoda which is 30m high, with an octagonal base and a structure that blends Chinese, Thai and Burmese elements. Be careful when going up the narrow stairs. The view from up there was fabulous! Took lots of photos, then made our way down as more people came up.
