There was once a time when people knew very little about Southeast Asian countries and holiday destinations within them. However, today, more and more travellers are aware of these countries and the magic that they have to offer. Penang tour packages offer tourists the chance to discover one of the hidden gems.
The best thing about coming to Penang is that there are so many things to do and places to visit that all members of the group will be happy. While this city has emerged as a popular destination for honeymoon couples, it is just as perfect for families and other groups. There are temples, forts, gardens and of course, several shopping and dining areas, all waiting to be explored.
A Penang trip would be considered incomplete without a trip to the famous Penang Hill. Somewhat similar to Victoria Peak in Hong Kong, the method of reaching the top is by a funicular train. Once on top, tourists will not only get to enjoy stunning views of the island, but also visit a Hindu temple, a mosque as well as a church. For reptile lovers, there is a snake show, whereas for food lovers, there is a restaurant.
This island also has a number of places of worship in addition to buildings that have a lot of architectural importance.
Tourists will enjoy spending a day admiring the intricate work of Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram, Penang Khoo Khongsi and Kek Lok Si Temple. With distinctive Thai and Chinese influences, these sacred places are visited by tourists and locals in large numbers. Plenty of travellers choose a holiday in Penang as it offers a pleasant getaway from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Popular places for fun time away from city-life would be the Tropical Spice Garden and Penang Tropical Fruit Farm. While at the Spice Garden, travellers can get first-hand information about various plants and spices that are indigenous to this area; at the Fruit Farm, they can learn more about fruits and vegetables. The produce can be purchased by tourists at both these locations. The fun does not end in Penang after sunset as the city boasts of a vibrant nightlife and also, several markets sprout at night. Tourists can even visit food stalls at Gurney Drive Hawker Centre or watch fireflies near Krian River. With so much to experience, it is no surprise to that more and more tourists are choosing Penang holiday packages.
