  • Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera)

    Penang Things to Do

    There's a cable car to take you up Penang hill. I went on the first dry Saturday in a few weeks, after a very wet week, during the school holiday, just after Christmas, at about 11am.

There's a lad selling cold drinks just before the final...
