    Penang Off The Beaten Path

    Established as the second university in the country in 1969, University Sains Malaysia (USM) was first known as the University of Penang, before the University’s Act came into effect on 4th October 1971. The university has been developing and expanding since its inception, which started with 57 science students. Now USM offers at undergraduate and...

  • Chickens!

    Well.. there's nothing really unusual about this, but when I was younger, my grandma had chickens in the backyard, there weren't pets I can tell you that much. Well, ironically, my grand-aunt have them as pets. I find that weird hehe beats me. Anyho, here's a nice picture of them, kinda cute :D

  • Beyond The Hills

    Here lies Balik Pulau, the other side of the island of Penang.You can have a good view from the Observation area, on the new highway from Relau/Paya Terubong to Balik Pulau.

  • Go To The End

    Teluk Bahang is on the northwesternmost tip of Penang Island.A small fishing village, it nevertheless has many attractions of Pulau Pinang -- the Hotel Mutiara Beach, the Butterfly Farm, the Forest Reserve, The Dam plus the fishing village itself.

  • Bathing Boatmen

    After the having a great time at the beach, tired from the hike and fun, you can opt to take a boat back from either the Mukah Head beach or the Pantai Keracut beach. Though I would suggest making prior arrangements in case your mobile phone has no signal along the hiking trail (which happens all the time), you can also make make last minute...

  • Hike to Mukah Head (5)

    After three quarters of the journey, you will arrive at Pantai Keracut where you will find a lovely lake. This lake is only present from March until August because the sandy embankment protecting the lake from the sea is broken down by wave action around September. The monsoon affects the beach structure naturally. Pic courtesy of Lai Poh Sang;...

  • Hike to Mukah Head (4)

    Nearly halfway through the hike, there are a row of chalets by the beach which you can rent. You can see the wooden balcony of the chalets from the left hand corner of the pic. This part of the island essentially consists of finishing villages. You can see anchored boats by the beach. The operator of these chalets can also arrange for water...

  • Hike to Mukah Head (3)

    As you can see from the picture, there aren't many ppl on the beaches along the trail. If you don't like idea of sharing the beach with people, the effort the hike is well paid off by the "secludicity" of the beaches. Keep in mind, it was a Saturday when I went. Can't imagine how little human traffic there would be on a weekday.

  • Hike to Mukah Head (2)

    Along the way, should you get tired, just sit down by the beach - replenish your body with lots of fluids and just enjoy the beach.

  • Hike to Mukah Head (1)

    In Penang, you can take a day off from the cultural and gastronomical adventure and head towards Teluk Bahang for a short hike to Mukah Head where there is an old lighthouse. Hiking trail starts from the "End of the World Restaurant" and takes about 2-3 hours on the average. Hiking trail weaves from jungle treks to stretches of the beach. The trail...
