Nestled like a gem in Peninsular
Malaysia and declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Penang is a world of its
own with its spellbinding natural beauty and unique sights that reflect the
region’s strong multi-cultural influences. If you wish to experience its scenic
and culturally significant highlights, this guided excursion uncovers the Penang’s
unassuming charm and rich heritage at its absolute best.
Begin your Penang
exploration with a pick up from your hotel which straight away ventures you to its
natural landscape, before stopping in at Penang Batik Factory. With a unique
art gallery, workshop, and a boutique, it remarkably presents the ancient art
of fabric painting, known as Batik. You’ll be fascinated to know about Batik’s complex
dyeing process as well as mesmerizing designs which are intricately hand-painted
or hand-blockprinted. Drive next to one of the region’s lively Street Fruit
Stalls where you can shop and savor several different varieties of local and
exotic fruit specialties.
Get introduced to
Penang’s rustic old-world appeal and distinct attractions, as you weave your
way through the quaint Malay village and the untouched Balik Pulau Town.
Finally, enjoy some tranquil moments at the highly sanctified Snake Temple that
has been built to honor the Buddhist monk, Chor Soo Kong. Just as the name
indicates, you’ll see here venomous pit vipers curled around alter, plants and
branches. Mysteriously, they appear to be docile and unperturbed!
After a day of incredible
sightseeing, we’ll head you back to your hotel or pick up point.
