Claiming to be the country’s first ecotourism site, The Habitat at Penang Hill is the newest attraction to join the ranks of popular tourism sites in Penang. With its objectives in promoting environmental causes and the conservation of nature, The Habitat features walking trails within the lush rainforest of Penang. Along these trails, one can find a variety of flora and fauna which inhabit the rainforest and hills, ranging from tiny insects to the rainforest’s wildlife and plants.
A place which will be appreciated by people who like nature, The Habitat also features its own attractions like the giant swings, mini gardens and a tree top walk (the Curtis Walk), in addition to guided walking tours. There are several other new attractions (like the canopy walk) which are being developed currently and are expected to be completed by the year’s end.
