Enticing for an island getaway? Well, Penang is one of the best places to abscond to after all the lockdown dilemmas we have been succumbed to due to this mind-numbing pandemic… Here’s to why…
Penang has always been famous for its historical sites with many buildings carrying tales of heritage and values over the years. Here are some new hidden mysteries we have found for you to visit when you’re in town.
David Brown’s Restaurant and Tea Terrace
Enjoy sipping a cup of tea here, indulging in the best western meals cooked by their in-house chef overlooking the magnificent skyline of Penang. This place offers a great ambience for open-air dining and a wonderful view to look upon.
This is the view you would be able to catch if you are here at twilight. Isn’t it splendid?
Malihom Private Estate
A private estate built deep in the forest, away from the concrete jungle is a perfect getaway to a serene place full of lush greens, in nature’s very own arms.
This hidden gem is built on the hill of Balik Pulau, Penang.
The Hilltop Thai Restaurant
Treat yourself to a scrumptious Thai meal, surrounded by the celestial dome of Penang light up entirely by skyscrapers of the metropolis, this view is something you wouldn’t want to miss out on.
Come by here in the evening for an exotic view of Penang Island.
Never had a chance to savour Thai tapas, well here is the place for you to indulge in them! Bursting with authentic Thai flavours will take you straight to the streets of Bangkok when you pop those little sides into your mouth. It’s a must-have treat, not to be missed.
Tree Monkey is a restaurant built based on the concept of a treehouse, the ultimate nature dining pleasure, which is a rare experience.
Countryside Stables Penang
This place is a stable in the inner countryside of Penang. It has horses and ponies offering a chance for both kids and adults to ride on. Visitors could feed the horses, ride on them, and take photos with these majestic stallions.
Go on a roadie down the countryside of Penang with your family to have this wonderful experience.
Hidden Tikki is a speakeasy in the streets of Penang and happens to be the first Tikki bar in Malaysia. Their lively music and instagramable drinks is a definite must for those who prefer to just chill the night away.
This place would surely give you a run to hunt cause the entrance to this place is going to be a maze. Find the door, and enter into the cave of Tikki for an unforgettable experience.
