Check and see how good your negotiation skills are
If consider yourself a good negotiator you should go to one of the markets in Penang. You can try the popular Bazaar Chowrasta to see if you manage to knock off the price of a product. These people are trained to do this night and day and it may not be that easy. It’s a fun way to visit the city and to see how good you actually are.
Ride a bike from Batu Ferringhi to Teluk Bahang
If you are in the need of a good workout you can take a bike and do this amazing circuit. It’s long, it has many curves and hills but you will be astonished by the views and the quality of the road. It will be silence and beauty at the same time.
Go to Batu Ferringhi beach at sunset
If you are in Penang with your significant other this is the place that you must visit. The view here, at sunset is astonishing (especially if the day was extremely hot)! You will have the opportunity to see a variety of colors between fuchsia and vermillion that will get lost in the dark night when the time comes. It’s a view that none of you will forget for a long time.
Go to the Bird Park
The Bird Park is one of the most fun places in Penang as you get to see a variety of exotic birds from all over the world.

The place offers such a diversity of activities and places to see that we can guarantee you won’t be bored (not even for a second!). Besides the places, we put on our list there are others that you will find out about from locals and guides.
