Penang Hill – Sightseeing Attractions

Penang Hill  is situated about 2750 feet above the sea level.  The easiest way to reach there is by funicular air-conditioned coach. It only takes about 5 minutes to arrive at Penang Hill to enjoy the  fresh air and cool environment. Here you can get a good view of the undulating hills backed by turquoise sea, surrounding tropical green vegetation, high rise buildings and Mainland Penang, neat rows of roof tops and Komtar icon building, the famous  Kek-lok-si temple, and Penang Bridge, which links the island to peninsula Malaysia. Another means of transportation to and fro Penang Hill is by jeep service at the Penang Botanical Gardens , located at the foot of Penang Hill, near the northern part of the island. But the best choice  is by hiking, which takes about two to three hours, depending on your hiking stamina.
