Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at your hotel in the George Town area, then travel to the base of Penang Hill in a private, climate-controlled vehicle. Upon arrival, continue to the top on a funicular train, earning a spectacular, bird's-eye view of Penang Island. 

    Next, head to Kek Lok Si Temple, a beautiful Buddhist temple that's among the largest in Southeast Asia. See the towering statue of Kuan Yin, and learn to distinguish the three architectural styles on the seven-story pagoda: you'll find Chinese, Burmese, and Thai. Pause at the Liberation Pool to count the turtles, and if time permits, you can stop for a snack at one of the nearby hawker stalls. 

    Following your time at Kek Lok Si Temple, continue to Pulau Tikus to visit the Reclining Buddha Temple, or Wat Chaiyamangkalaram, and the Burmese Temple, or Dharmikarama Temple. See the world's third-longest reclining Buddha statue, and discover the differences between Chinese and Siamese temple dragons. Check out the Guardian of the World, or Panca Rupa, then throw a few good luck coins in the Fountain of Life.

    This half-day tour concludes with return transfer to George Town, and drop-off at your original departure point.
