4D Penang Scenic Hikes & Food Paradise!
Scenic Hikes. Glorious Food. Heritage Sites. Theme Cafes. Crazy Street murals. Funny 3D museums etc ... This is PENANG - Pearl of the Orient!
While most people think of Georgetown, the island’s UNESCO world heritage capital, upon the mention of its name; Penang is so much more than that. Apart from it being an obvious foodie paradise due to the melting pot of cultures that settled here, Penang has her exciting less-travelled side waiting for you to stumble upon and be charmed by her numerous sides.
Hiking – a TLC trademark
Of course we’ll be hiking in Penang. We’ll be exploring the nature and less-touristy places in Penang, away from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown. Unwind in nature as we transverse up into the hidden jungle paradise of Penang Hill. This time we’ll be skipping the funicular ride up and taking on the challenge of conquering the hill on foot instead to make the final panoramic view of Penang worth it! With the photos/ videos of the breathtaking view of the sea, islands and Penang Bridge, it's time to relax and enjoy the exhilarating train-ride down. For those who are adventurous, you may wish to try the recently completed skywalk called The Habitat, at the peak too.
Next up is a morning hike at Penang National Park, the smallest national park in Malaysia. We’ll either be taking the trail up to Muka Head Lighthouse, set on top of a hill at 227m or the hike down to the lovely white, sandy Pantai Kerachut Beach where there is a rare meromictic lake (where saltwater and freshwater don’t mix, but you can’t really tell).
And of course we’ll be hunting for the famous Penang murals located at almost every street corner of Penang! In fact, we’ll make this even more exciting by making a game of who spots the most mural within a certain time. Put your creative cap on as you strike funny poses in front of murals to make them come alive!
We’ll be skipping the general sights of Penang and sourcing out secret hide-outs and lesser-known sites such as the Penang Avatar Secret Garden, which lights up at night to resemble a scene right out of Avatar; Hin Bus Depot Art Centre for its communal art exhibitions featuring budding local artists; and Kek Lok Si Buddhist Temple, which lights up like Christmas at night (the irony though).
Penang Street Food Hunt
Of course, we can’t possibly visit the capital of foodie paradise without stuffing ourselves with the local street food. Come explore the wide collection of street food with us along places like New Lane Hawker Street. So where's the best Char-kway-teow, Lor Bak, Penang Assam Laksa, Oh-chien, Chendol etc.? Forget Gurney Drive. Join us to find out where.
