your experience

Penang Hill and Kek Lok Si temple are very sought-after tourist attractions in this region. Your friendly drive cum tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and guide you throughout the tour. Your hotel transfer will either be private or in a group, depending on the ticket option you choose.

Your first pitstop will be the Kek Lok Si temple. This temple also known as the Pagoda of ten thousand Buddhas has a 7-tiered Pagoda that showcases Burmese, Chinese, and Thai architecture. The temple itself houses certain important cultural elements such as the 99-foot tall bronze statue of the Goddess of Mercy, the Guanyin and the Pond of longevity which contains hundreds of turtles that embody strength, longevity, and endurance according to Chinese culture.

After visiting the temple, the guide will take you to Georgetown where you will be boarding The Penang Hill Funicular Train. You will travel to one of the oldest hill stations of Malaysia - the Penang hilltop. You will get to catch a glimpse of the elusive flora and fauna alongside breathtaking panoramic views of Georgetown. Soak into the freshness of the air on the hilltop and click some amazing pictures with your loved ones.
