5. Ride the Funicular
Sit back in this historic funicular train and drink in the incredible views around you as you make the ascent up Penang Hill. Once you reach the top, grab a pair of binoculars and head towards the viewing deck, where you’ll be thrilled by the undulating landscape of the city. Make sure to book a guided nature walk ($29 weekdays, $38 weekends) for a mild trek through Penang Hill’s ancient tropical rainforest. You’ll feel reinvigorated as you breathe in the crisp air and watch birds swoop across lush canopies.
