The walk/hike is a very refreshing. The view at the Viewing Deck is really great. There are still Work In Progress at the Park. Maybe after the full completion its really worth the price for RM47.00

I had a half a day to explore Penang and chose to go up to Penang Hill. I took the train. It was clean, well run and fun. The hill offers a spectacular view of Penang.

Though you have to make the journey upward to Penang Hill to visit this, it's definitely worth it cause you'll get a view of George Town and the main Malay peninsula part of Penang. It looks even better when it's at sunset as you'll catch...More
