The Penang Full Day Tour is the best way to explore the city’s key attractions including the Botanical Gardens and Fort Cornwallis. The tour starts out in Ayer Hitam, at the ornate Kek Lok Si Temple; also known as the Temple of Supreme Bliss – the temple is the largest Buddhist shrine in Malaysia. The tour continues on towards the Wat Chayamangkalaram Thai Temple where an enormous effigy of a reclining Buddha – one of the largest in the world – resides.
Later, head along the scenic paths of the peaceful 30-hectare Botanical Gardens and take in the sights and sounds of the resident flora and fauna. Next, go on over to the Butterfly Farm where you can see a sundry assortment of insect species and later stop over at a pewter factory for a demonstration – be sure to pick up some souvenirs! The day wraps up with a visit to a Batik factory to see how this traditional Malay silk garment is made.
