What you can expect

Escape the crowds in Georgetown and relax at Penang Hill and the magnificent Kek Lok Si Temple. Take the opportunity to breathe in the fresh air and embark on a spiritual journey to an iconic temple.

Start your private tour from the doorstep of your Penang hotel with convenient private transportation. Travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle to the beautiful Penang Hill. Make your way to the peak using the popular funicular train. At the summit, feel the cool breeze as it blows across the land and marvel at the magnificent views.

After a mellow experience at the top of Penang Hill, take a trip to the Kek Lok Si Temple. Admire the statues and architecture of this Buddhist temple, the largest in Southeast Asia. Among the attractions here are the 100-foot (30-m) tall statue of the Goddess of Mercy, the 7-tiered Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas, and the Pond of Longevity.

Close out the day with a scenic trip back to your hotel.
