With many ways of travelling to the top of Penang Hill, there is as much beauty in the journey as there are incredible views from the top. The recently updated funicular train is the most common method of travel as it takes just five minutes to reach the top in air conditioned coaches. If embracing nature is your kind of thing, choose hiking and take in the surrounding sights. At the top there are restaurants and small souvenir and refreshment stands as well as a temple, mosque and bird sanctuary.
