About Penang Hill in Penang Island

Snuggled about 6 km away from GeorgeTown, the lush and forested area of Penang Hill is the most significant hill resort in Peninsular Malaysia. Perched atop the capital of Penang at a height of about 821 meter, it comprises Tiger Hill, Western Hill, Government Hill, Flagstaff Hill, and Bukit Laksamana, it is also called as Bukit Bendera by islanders. Being the last patch of tropical forest in the region of Penang, its flora and fauna are being under utmost protection since 1960. Head towards this lush hilltop, which is one of the most sought-after attractions in the region, and delve into its fresh environs for a rejuvenating experience.

History of Penang Hill

Dating back to the era post British settlement, Penang Hill, Malaysia was discovered when the area was commissioned to be cleared by Francis Light in order to let the strawberries grow. Albeit, the area couldn’t develop fully, it became a popular refuge amongst emigrants. As you climb up the Penang Hill station, you may also grab a chance to explore its oldest bungalow, called Bel Retiro, which is now the holiday stay of Penang’s Governor.

Attractions of Penang Hill

Get on a Penang Hill tour on a clear day, and you may just grab an enticing opportunity to cherish the mesmerizing view of the mountains of Langkawi. While, a night excursion is even more rewarding offering you a striking view of illuminated GeorgeTown. The major factors that draw thousands of visitors to this attraction every year is its cool and unpolluted environs. And, if you are an adventure enthusiast, then a trek through its lush nature trails decked with about 30 meter high trees can be the best part of this excursion.

What’s more? As the region is blessed with more than 100 species of birds, including an array of garden species and some exotic forest inhabitants, this place is one of the best spots to enjoy bird-watching.

So, if you are also a wildlife and adventure enthusiast, then get your tickets to Penang Hill booked in advance, and hop on an excursion amidst the lush environs to have an experience that can be cherished for life.

    Anand's 8 days trip to Penang

    Trip was excellent with few cons- Communication and daytrip n transfer. The local transfers was good, hotel value Thomson was good but small. hotel Arenaa star is not so clean but spacious and breakfast is horrible. Singapore- My first day, voucher was not delivered on airport as mentioned and nothing was communicated, i had to call them for the vouchers and day tour was to start by 10am but it started for us at 12.15pm ly since we were asked to wait at flyer for more than an hour and some shop which were no interested and because of that we were not able to spent much time in actual itinerary places. Malaysia- we had to wait in gentings for an hour since our co travelers were not provided with proper transfer to hotel or cable car tickets for there hotel transfer. Apart from this negative all the transfers and sightseeing was smooth. Overall 8/10 If they short out the issues than it will be a memorable one.

    Kranthikumar's 7 days trip to Penang

    With reference to the Malaysia Tour that we had in coordination with Ms. Shalu Shrivastava and Kusharkholidays, we would like to place a line of appreciation to the entire team in making the trip memorable of life time. Entire trip that we had was hassle free, Rooms were booked in advance in both the places and we had a smooth Check In & Out, Vehicles were organised as per our schedule and were on time. Drivers at KL & Langkawi were courteous enough to accomodate our needs. I would like to personally thank Mr. Jack our driver at KL who had completely assisted us not only in shuttling to the places but also in giving some useful information about the places as a guide and connecting so well with my 2.5 years old Son. Ms. Shalu & Mr. Konark, I would like to mention that with out your assistance in organising the whole thing it will be difficult for us. I can surely assure you both that we could able to recommend our contacts about your best of services that we enjoyed during vacations. Will connect for sure in another 06 months time for an another trip, thanks in advance.

    Anubhav's 4 days trip to Penang

    I went to Malaysia trip. Rocking trip has organized my package for hotel and other amenities apart from flights. It was really good. Service providers was great. Just the one thing I didn't like is that airport drop was just 4 hours before flight which is very risky. As according to international flight we have to reach 2:30 hours before flight timing n we reached 2 hours before but luckily I was able to check in. I would recommend to take private ride to airport atleast 5 hours before flight as it's 40 kms from airport. Hope to take another foreign trip with them with some improvements.

    Flight timings hectic and for vegetarian it become more difficult. Not proper guidance provided on the security check policy due to which sunscreen , and other cosmetic products taken away at the airports by security staff. Hotels provided negligible options for veg meals. In 5 days trip less sight seeing provided by the agent.
