  • Local Beer - Tiger Beer

    There is not much to say about this beer, as it is the native beer of Malaysia (although it is orginally from Singapore). It has Australian Barley and German hops, so you know it has to be good!I enjoyed several, and I would definitely recommend it being served extremely cold, since you will most likely be enjoying it in very warm weather.

  • Monkey Watching in Penang Island

    For both adults and children, some how watching monkeys is an exciting drama. How close they will come and some even picking food from your palm, how they fight each other for food or how the young ones cling on to their mothers as they scamper off up the branches, hanging precariously.More common is the brown long tailed macaques. But you can also...

    Sitting having a cold drink at the restaurant on top of Penang Hill I noticed a sign warning not to disturb the pit vipers. When the waiter appeared I asked him where the pit vipers where.
