Penang Hill, Malaysia

Discover the incredible lush scenery of the city’s hilltop resort at Penang Hill. Located on the edge of George Town, Penang Hill offers visitors panoramic views of the city and the eastern coast of Penang Island.

On a clear day, visitors can see for miles, while the dreamy pinks and blues against the lights of George Town at dusk make for incredibly romantic views.

Exploring Penang Hill

Penang Hill has long been a popular destination with tourists thanks to its altitude. From the hilltop's summit, the average temperature is 21C – offering relief from the hotter temperatures of the bustling city below.

The Penang Hill Funicular Railway takes visitors from the city up towards the summit, offering opportunities along the way to pause and admire the flora and fauna of the area.

The charming colonial buildings, winding trails and vegetable and flower farms dotted along the route only add to the hillside's charms.

From the top of the hill, visitors can explore the small tourist village, where there are restaurants and souvenir stalls, as well as a small tea room, a mosque and a Hindu temple.
