We are on Penang Hill, Bukit Bendera on the island of Penang in Malaysia, South East Asia. In this video we will show you Penang Hill and many of the Attractions on it, Penang Hill is Not Just Any Hill in Malaysia! Our tour starts at the foot of Penang Hill just a short drive from Penang´s main city centre George Town. We will be riding the the Funicular Train that shuttles people up and down Penang Hill at lightning speed. The Penang Hill Funicular Railway was opened in 1923 as a two-section railway, and just the high speed ride on the Funicular is a worthwhile Penang experience to take home with you!
Penang Hill Attractions covered in this video include the Skywalk, the Skydeck with its beautiful view over Georgetown, the Second Generation Coach (one of the original Funicular train carriages used to transport people up and down Penang Hill), the Penang Hill Mosque (Masjid Bukit Pendera), the Sri Aruloli Thirumugan Temple (unfortunately it was closed for renovations when we visited Penang Hill), Bel Retiro Gate House, The Habitat, the Heritage Post Box, the Cannon (32-Pounder Cannon), the Guard House, the El Walk and the Monkey Cup Garden. We spent the day Hiking on Penang Hill and at the end of the day we were driven back by pickup to the Funicular Railway area. For those of you who have walking disabilities there are Chauffeured Golf Kits available to take visitors on a sightseeing tour on Penang Hill. Penang Hill with its Viewpoint overlooking George Town is one of the Top Penang Island Attractions and well worth a visit when you visit this Penang, Malaysia.

It has two parts: Penang Island, where the capital city, George Town, is located, and Seberang Perai on the Malay Peninsula. They are connected by Malaysia’s two longest road bridges, the Penang Bridge and the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge; the latter is also as of May 2019 the longest oversea bridge in Southeast Asia..”
