Penang Nature: A Hidden Waterscape

The Ayer Itam reservoir.


Penang Nature: Hill Forest

Despite being a rather small island, Penang is not short of rainforest and natural landscapes. The hills which formed mostly at the northern part of the island are populated with old towering trees and various fauna.

Penang Nature: Waterfalls

Waterfalls at Titi Kerawang. The Titi Kerawang cascade is located somewhere along the hill route that connects the western and northern part of the island. The route is part of the “round island drive” trip in Penang.

Breathtaking views from the inside of the funicular train while traveling along the railway up to the top of Penang Hill. The new train now takes less than 30 minutes to reach the top station of the hill, and unlike the old train, it no longer stops at the middle station.
