Penang Attractions – Malaysian Treasures of the Orient

Penang Attractions allows you to explore the 'Treasure of the Orient', from sandy shores to quaint countryside. Visit the batik factory and watch this traditional technique, which is achieved using wax and dyes, and in Batik Pulau discover rubber tapping, spices and local fruits. Stop at a tranquil Malay village and visit the legendary Snake Temple, where pit vipers adorn the altars. At the free trade zone, enter OE Design and observe the art of jewellery making (on weekends and public holidays you’ll visit Penang Butterfly Farm). Finally, marvel at Penang Bridge, the world’s third-longest, which links this magical island to the mainland.
