Top 7 Places in Penang to Visit with Your Family

Pack Your Bags for A Far East Journey to the Pearl of the Orient – With Your Family in Tow

In October, 2016, I had the opportunity to explore the Malaysian state of Penang, while centralized in the urban hub of George Town. One day, after striking up a conversation with a young woman, traveling with her husband and 5-year-old son, I began to think about some of the unique challenges that parents face when traveling with an entourage.

Since Penang extends beyond George Town, encompassing beaches and jungles and fishing villages, I thought I would compile a list of the most child-friendly places and activities, for those families planning to visit this region in the near future.

Sunbathing in Batu Ferringhi
This is a vibrant beach, which has a little bit of something for everyone. For the adrenaline junkie, this stretch of white sand boasts a number of water activities, like banana boating, parasailing and jet-skiing for a medium fee, which you can usually barter down with the operator to get a better deal. If rest and relaxation is what you’re after, then head for one of the great little massage/reflexology huts scattered along the top of the beach, which offer a cushy place to watch the sunset. There are plenty of good local street food and drink stalls nearby, and areas of the beach are enclosed with buoys as barriers, so that children can swim freely.

Summiting Penang Hill
In order to visit Penang Hill, you need to board a cable car or tram, which will bring you to the summit for a spectacular, panoramic view of George Town and surrounding area. Once you’re on top of the hill, you can enjoy an espresso or order a dish of your favorite tropical fruit at one of the many food stalls overlooking the point. Children will enjoy the owl museum, the 5D Cinema, the kiddie train ride and the super pythons. If you follow some of the hiking trails, you may even be lucky enough to spot a dusty leaf monkey or a giant black squirrel. Just make sure to keep in mind that this is a popular attraction, and in peak season, you may have to queue for awhile unless you’re willing to pay double (RM 60 per person) for the fast lane.

Jungle trekking in Penang National Park
While I wouldn’t recommend jungle-trekking for families with young children, especially along tracks that are often steep, wet and tricky to maneuver, Penang National Park is a beautiful place to visit, and located around 35 km from George Town. If you do decide to brave the 1.5 – 2 hour hike to Turtle Beach, you can visit a small turtle sanctuary before catching your boat (pre-registered at the entrance for around RM 80) back to your starting point. You can also take a boat directly to and from Monkey Island, where many families spend a night or two camping. Make sure to pack lots of water and food, since there are no vendors on site.

Finding Adventure in Teluk Bahang
I don’t usually advocate for visiting amusement parks as part of any travel itinerary, but I’m willing to make a special exception for Escape AdventurePlay in Teluk Bahang. As an avid climber, I enjoy developing my hand-eye coordination wherever possible, and this park is second to none when it comes to getting a little bit tactical. With slack lines, wobbly bridges and a zip line, there are a number of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you’re flying high above the trees, free falling from a 20m jump platform or taking a swing at the inner-tube slide, you can find adventure here at this thrilling amusement park.

Hitting the pavement in George Town
One of my favorite things to do in George Town when I was visiting was just to walk, one foot in front of the other, without purpose or destination. With its eclectic mix of colonial architecture, modern cafes, time-worn shop houses and art-adorned city walls, there is something to discover around every corner. If you have young children, or just want to try out the novelty of local transportation, you might like to hop aboard a trishaw for a breezy tour of the city. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can even rent your own trishaw to tote the family around. There are also many child-friendly attractions in George Town, which include the “Made in Penang” interactive museum, the clan jetties and the Penang 3D trick art museum.

Exploring Kek Lok Si in Air Itam
The Kek Lok Si Temple, situated in Air Itam, is a well-known Buddhist temple, with an interesting blend of Burmese, Chinese and Malaysian architecture. The temple is located on a fairly steep incline, which is challenging to climb, but once you’re at the top, the views are outstanding. If you can part with RM 6 per person, you can also take an inclined lift to see a large bronze statue of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. There is also a tortoise pond and a wishing tree, which seems to be a big hit with the kids.

Boarding the Ferry to Butterworth
Taking the ferry from Penang Island to Butterworth is a wonderful outing for the whole family. On the way to the ferry, there are many kiosks that sell fresh fruit and other Malaysian snacks, so the kids won’t go hungry. The ferries have a nostalgic feel, a remnant of the old mode of transportation used to get on and off the island. Once you arrive in Butterworth, you can either make your way to the train station, or you can check out Tow Boo Kong, a Chinese temple surrounded by many vegetarian food stalls.

Gunung Tahan Climbing Package

GUNUNG TAHAN PACKAGE 2017: COME CONQUER THE MOST CHALLENGED PEAK IN PENINSULA MALAYSIA

If you have the sudden yearn to conquer a mountain in Peninsula Malaysia look no further as there is Gunung Tahan for you to attempt and conquer. Our Gunung Tahan Package provides you with the opportunity to reach the 2187m summit. Gunung Tahan after all is the highest peak in Peninsula Malaysia.

Your journey to reach the top of the mountain will require you to pluck up your courage to ascend and descend mountains, cross and wade through rivers, camp with basic necessities, experience the discomfort of being wet and cold and more. It can be one of the best outdoor experience you will go through.

gunung tahan packageLocated in the heart of the Taman Negara National Park, climbing and reaching the summit and descending will normally take about 5 days. Any shorter trip will require higher endurance level by the climbing group.

To familiarize yourself, this peak is approximately 53km from Kampung Kuala Tahan in near Jerantut, Pahang. A closer location to reach Gunung Tahan would be from Kuala Juram (entry point is Taman Negara Sungai Relau). It is only 32km from this location. Our staging point of the Gunung Tahan Package starts from here. Remember, this program starts and ends in Merapoh, Pahang.

Gunung Tahan is truly not for the fainthearted. Even the shortest, the Merapoh-Merapoh trail, takes three to four days to complete. Known as one of the toughest treks and among the most challenging mountains to climb in the region due to the various peaks one would have to ascend and descend before reaching the main summit, much is still being discovered about Gunung Tahan.



INTERESTING FACTS

i. Gunung Tahan is situated in the Tahan Range in Peninsula Malaysia.

ii. It is reputed to be about 250 million years old and formed during the prehistoric era.

iii. It was formed about 150 million years earlier than the oldest rainforest in the world which grew around it.

WORD OF CAUTION

Do not take this climb lightly as you will need to be physically fit – it is a well known fact that this climb is tougher than climbing Mount Kinabalu in Sabah. So get your fitness level up with sufficient training starting a few months prior to the climb. A medical check up although not required by us is highly recommended especially if you are over 40 years old.

Warning: Anyone wanting to take part in a Gunung Tahan climb must be aware of the difficulty of the climb and the perilous journey to be encountered. Climbers must be strong willed, fit and prepared – the more experience you have under your belt the better.

With that being said accidents do happen and a life was lost on the climb to Mount Tahan in Feb of 2016. Click here to read the news in The Star newspaper.

Thank you to Google Maps Street View for making the Imagery available thus making it easier for climbers to prepare for their climb. And also for those that are not able to do the climb to get a feel of the climb without leaving the comfort of their armchair.

NOTE TO CLIMBERS

Climbers must be in good physical shape and fitness level although those without any experience in trekking the tropical rainforest are certainly welcomed. Climbs are operational throughout the year. We do not have assigned departure dates and take in bookings as and when required. Although we can run the Gunung Bujang Melaka climb with a minimum of 2 pax, the cost will be higher generally as fixed costs are divided between the number of people in the group. The more people, the more savings you will see in your climbing cost. Do have a chat with us if you are keen. Don’t make the small number of people you have stop you from doing the climb!

 

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE CLIMB PACKAGE

Our package will include round trip transportation from Kuala Lumpur (express bus or private transfer depending on your budget), local climbing guide(s), meals, and tents. You will be required to bring your own hiking shoes, personal medication, change of clothes, jumper and haversack. Equipment, utensils, food ration meant for the group will be divided equally to distribute the weight prior to the climb. Everyone is required to share responsibility in campsite duties. If you require porters, this can be arranged at the time of booking.

SELAKAN ISLAND HOMESTAY PACKAGE FOR LEISURE AND DIVING 2015 2016

4 Days / 3 Nights  SELAKAN ISLAND
LEISURE PACKAGE
STARTING FROM: JETTY UMUM SEMPORNA

pulau selakan homestay package 2015 2016
I am putting up on our website the Selakan Homestay package for those who love the sea. The package is not for scuba divers only – even if you are a non diver, this retreat is perfect for you.

Within the Tun Sakaran Marine park is an island called Selakan, and it is also the most populous of all the islands there. So far this is the only island which visitors can overnight.

If you are looking for something different in Malaysia, give it a try. Although the homestay is quite basic (no-airconditioning, shared bathroom, etc) but the view is amazing. Immersing in the lifestyle and day-to-day life of the Bajau Laut (Sea Gypsies) will make you appreciate your own life – from where ever you are coming from.

PACKAGE INCLUDES
Return Boat Transfer from Semporna to Selakan Island
3 Nights Accommodation at Selakan Homestay

How to Plan an Outdoor Leadership Camp for University Students

How to Plan an Outdoor Leadership Camp for University Students: Steps and Tips to Get Your Started

If you have been assigned to plan an outdoor leadership camp for the students – this can be a daunting task. Even if you are a student or a member of the faculty it would take some planning and investment in time. Working in a group or a committee will spread the responsibilities. To start of, we have here some tips for you. Hopefully you will find them useful. In this article on “how to plan an outdoor leadership camp for university students” we have listed some important factors to consider.

And, at the end of the article we also have a ‘ready to use’ off-the-shelf leadership camp package consisting of location and its services. One that you can use right away. All you need to do is include some of your own sessions or activities to customize the leadership camp to according to the objectives you want to accomplish.

WHY

Normally, the purpose of conducting an outdoor leadership camp away from campus is to enabe students from different backgrounds to work together to achieve a common goal. In general it will make students develop hollistically by developing their different life-skills something which will ultimately benefit them. List out your objectives so you can hone in to your desired outcome when the program finishes.

LOCATION

In Malaysia, we are blessed with so many places to conduct the leadership camp. You will be spoilt for choice from islands like Pangkor and Langkawi, to hill areas like the Cameron Highlands, Frasers Hills and the jungles like the Royal Belum, the Endau-Rompin and Taman Negara to name a few. Within these areas there are private operators that will have their own camps. Some can be large with many amenities and activities. Some are just simple campsites with toilets, showers and multipurpose hall. So decide where and also how much budget you have because this will determine where you can conduct your program. Pay careful attention to some restrictions – some universities only allow you to travel within the state or not exceeding a certain distance. So check this too.

  • national park
  • jungle setting
  • kampung setting
  • beach
  • city – (why not)

TRANSPORT

Obviously when the place is far, transportation cost can also be more expensive. Travel time will be longer to get to the place (and also to get home after the program). These factors will also come into play when you plan for your leadership camp. Mode of transportation also contribute to the cost – if you are able to use transportation like the university’s bus that may save you some money. Otherwise you will have to look at using express buses, charter coaches, train service, etc.

ACTIVITIES

You should discuss with your committee members on conducting some of the sessions yourselves. And eventually get the participants to the camp to take some responsibilities and tasks.  Camp operators may also have their own activities such as jungle trekking, river tubing, flying fox etc. Be sure to conduct a debriefing session after these activities or towards the end of your program and let the participants share their experience – how they felt, specific things they did to help their friend, etc.

Endau Rompin Adventure Package 5 Days 4 Nights

Endau Rompin Adventure Package 5 Days 4 Nights: A Journey of Discovery off the Beaten Track

Gazetted as a National Park in 1993, the Endau-Rompin National Park has waterfall-laden jungle teeming with animals. Think of it as the place to come when you feel like wanting to experience the  ‘deep Malaysian interior’. The park straddles the Johor-Pahang border. It is 260-million-year-old and the 870-sq-km park is the second-largest one on the peninsula after the heavily promoted and more well-known Taman Negara.

This park is mostly unexplored and for the normal visitor there are only a few trails available in Endau-Rompin.  Exploration is therefore limited. But you will be surprised that what you can see is spectacular. The park’s lowland forests are among the last in Peninsular Malaysia and have been identified as harbouring unique varieties of plant life including enormous umbrella palms, with their characteristic fan-shaped leaves, and Livinstona endanensis, a species of palm with serrated circular leaves.

We have put together an itinerary which is not rushed and one that will take you to some of the highlights the park can offer. This is a 5 day 4 night program covering the Endau Rompin National Park. There are 2 gateways into the park which are from Kahang or Selai. Note that no trails link these 2 areas.
This package takes you into the park from the town of Kahang and finishes back in this town.
