What’s visiting Penang without stepping foot on Penang Hill? Don’t be fooled by the greeneries. There’re in fact a number of activities that you can do. Such as visiting the museum, taking a slow walk, or even the adventurous zipline!
To head up to Penang Hill, there’s a couple of ways. One is to hike up for about 2.5hrs (dangerous due to snakes and fallen trees) or buy a return train ticket. I recommend getting the Fast pass as you can skip the insanely long queue!
This is part of the joy ride on the train. Getting to see the cool view while the train climbs up the slope.
When you’re at the top, head to the viewing deck to get a panoramic view of Penang!
Take a look at Penang Hill Mosque (Masjid Bukit Bendera). This is the only mosque on the hill for Muslims who work or live there.
Just a short walk from the mosque sits Bel Retiro Bungalow. This was built in 1789 for the governor of Penang.

David Brown’s Restaurant & Tea Terrace
Definitely, the one thing you can do to soak in the pretty view and the cool temperature is having a meal at David Brown’s Restaurant & Tea Terrace.
You can start off your meal with a fragrant garlic bread dip with soup of the day.
Enjoy a roast beef served with mushroom sauce. For the value, it gives Lawry’s a run for their money.
To end the meal off with a brownie and vanilla ice cream. I highly recommend this dessert!
