One of the highlights of Penang Island is the Tropical Spice Garden, which is located at the Teluk Bahang area of the island. The Penang Tropical Spice Garden is a must visit for someone who is interested and curious about plants, the various types of spices found locally and in general, nature itself.
Apart from being the home of hundreds of plant species, the eco-attraction garden also provides a guided tour about the types of flora or spices found in the garden as well as a cooking class for visitors. There is also a Thai food restaurant and a souvenir shop located within the compound of the garden.
Located at the western shore of Balik Pulau area, and nearby Pantai Malindo (Malindo Beach), this small mangrove forest reserve is open to the public and has wooden walkway built for people to experience the natural surroundings.
Located at the residential area in York Road, away from the main roads Linear Park (or Taman Jajar) is a public park which had seen its better days but still somewhat retains a beautiful lush green landscape of old rain trees by the river.
The park can also be accessed from the Suffolk House via a red brick bridge.
