On day 2 afternoon, our friends decided to bring us to experience the nature of Penang. There are lots of nice views to share with you. Enjoy the photos!
The following is taken behind The Ship, the restaurant that serves great steak. It’s very expensive to dine there. I only dine at The Ship once, back then in 2006 at KL hahaha…
Our friend told us we can visit the beach from here. There are various activities such as paragliding, jetski and etc. that you can play there but we didn’t do any. Took some photos and we left.
Next, we went to the dam. Going up, up, up… You will pass by various places such as Tropical Spice Meseum(will blog about it later), Butterfly Farm(didn’t go there), and Penang Forestry museum. It’s very high up on the moutain before you reach Tropical Fruit Farm. You will not miss it.
View from the dam. In fact there’s a big signboard stating “Teluk Bahang” near the entrance of the dam.
The view of the mountain. Magnificent view!

The dam. Really love the view of water and mountain. You don’t get this view everyday unless you work there but I doubt I want to see it everyday ;p
Next stop, we just went down a bit and we reached Penang Forestry Museum.
If you like to challenge and be closer to the nature, you can do it here by going on the longest forest trail in Penang.
Visit the museum first, reminded me of Sarawak Timber Museum but Penang’s much bigger. No photos allowed in there. Once we came out, we went to the hanging bridge.
After that, our friend suggested that we refreshed ourselves at the stream by dipping our feet in there. There were many small fish in there. At first we just gently moved our feet in the water then when we stopped, sudddenly lots of fish came to us, surrounded our feet. I didn’t bother until I felt a bit of ticklish sensation then I noticed that these fish actually came to feast on our feet! However I didn’t continue on because co-incidently I decided to dry my feet since we didn’t have any towel and we’re wearing shoes, it took a bit of time to let our feet air dry. The guys continued on while I watched and took photos and video of their feet being eaten by the fish! *LOL*
HEY! FREE FISH SPA!!! ;p Here’s the video:
More of the nature, food and birthday party post coming tomorrow.
