You could start by doing some research - look at FAQ's in the upper left of this page.

1. Is it worth it? - That is personnal and you will only know after you have been. Penang Hill is just that, a hill .

so if you do go walkabout there is lots of up and down.

2. See FAQ's

3. No guided is needed

4. Bus 101 terminates about 500m from the park entrance.

Do a search for 'Monkey beach' if you want to try the boat route

thanks esorlegin

your faq gives very valuable info on the park and i will definitely get a boat to the monkey beach. do you have any ideas on the cost of hiring a boat?
