Get a taste of Penang Island’s cultural sites and history on this private half-day tour. Stop by countryside villages for a truly unique experience. Watch how locals process batik (art on textiles), taste tropical fruits, attempt rubber-tapping, and visit the historic Snake Temple.
Your tour starts in the morning with convenient hotel pickup. Immerse yourself in a traditional Malay village, where the houses are adorned with distinctive carvings. Take time to see the process of making colorful and vibrant designs of batik—an ancient art form using a wax resist-dyeing technique.
Your journey continues in an orchard, where you have the opportunity to taste tropical fruits that are only found in South East Asia like the durian—dubbed the "King of Fruits." And don't forget to try your hand at rubber-tapping.
Next, explore the mystical Snake Temple, home to a variety of pit vipers and filled with the smoke of burning incense. Before returning to your hotel, browse the duty-free OE Factory Outlet for mementos.
