Locally known as ‘Frog Hill’, this hidden abandoned quarry has attracted many to its scenic man-made lakes and reddish granite hills, combined with greenery from the surrounding overgrowth. The top of the hill provides a breathtaking views of the scenic landscapes around the area.
Frog Hill is located at an area covering Kampung Guar Petai and Kampung Guar Perahu in Tasek Gelugor, at the mainland side of Penang.
Note: The area itself is secluded and at times, quite empty. There is no maintained road (only muddy path), no street lamp and is deep inside the rural area, surrounded by palm oil plantation. Best to go in a group rather than alone, and there will be some minor hikes required to get to the top of the rocky hills.

The colorful Penang Boat Float reportedly won the 1Malaysia International Tourism Night Floral Parade which was held at Putrajaya back in June 2014. After the end of the festival in Putrajaya, the boat was brought to the Karpal Singh Drive (formerly known as the Nautilus Bay or Jelutong Promenade) for display to the public every night. The boat showcases several beautifully lit places of attraction or landmarks in Penang. The boat is also designed with a dragon head and shape, to represent the annual international dragon boats festival held on the island.
Every night until 27 February 2014, the Kek Lok Si temple complex will be illuminated with decorative lanterns and lights in celebration of the Chinese New Year. One of the most visited site on the island, this lighting event is held annually during the Chinese New Year.
