“Lovely visit to penang hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We loved this whole experience...such beauitful views...yes a bit hazy but penang is....Malaysia is!!
Fun tip up on the excellent train and amazing rain forest gardens and views. Morning is best, enjoyed a drive around with v interesting guide in a golf cart and saw such a lot. Absolutely made our visit to Penang.
Yes you do pay for trip etc but still soooo cheap compared to australian attractions.

It is a magnificent place to visit. Nice view, but the discriminatory pricing of the ticket between local Malaysian Citizen and international tourists is HUGE~~~~~

“Nice cool feel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Great place away from the city and enjoy the coolness up the hill. Train ride up was fast and steep. View was nice from top but was foggy at times!
