DAY 1

ARRIVAL PENANG – PENANG                                                                                   [-/-/-]

In line with the program, customers are strongly advised to spend the night prior to the start of this package in Penang in case an early morning arrival is not possible. The outlined package can start from Penang’s International Airport.

Depending on your starting point on this first day, your driver guide will welcome you (again) to Penang. This package suits both customers arriving with an early morning flight or are well-rested and ready to check out from their pre-booked Penang hotel. No visit to Penang is complete without taking a spin around its fabulous landscape, seeing its handicraft traditions from up close and breathe in the o so recognisable hues and smells of this award-winning cuisine. We commence the morning with an introduction to the arts and crafts industry: dying fabrics using wax and trained hands have put Malaysia on the map as a leading country when it comes to thematically crafted material. The colours and patterns of this art form still carry a lot of weight in the local fashion and souvenir industry…and for good reasons!

Next, Penang’s jungle is calling. Intertwined with fruit orchards and spice fields, the green core of Penang Island has been for generations the fertile, agricultural heart and soul for the farming community. Meandering roads take you along fields of some of Malaysia’s finest and sampling some of these local goodies can be found right along the main road. Street stalls selling local produce to both locals and visitors has been a long, outstanding forte and makes Penang such a high-in-demand culinary destination. Where there is farm land, there are villages and Penang forms no exception: while continuing your journey through the lush landscape of paddy fields and tiny settlements, we make our last morning stops at the centuries-old Snake temple. A religious landmark of some importance, the temple has an intriguing story, and your guide explains the ins and outs of this Penang institution of spiritual importance.

No lunch included on this day, on own arrangement

The ‘Coffee Tree’ is one of the main centres on Penang where local produce form all around the island, and even from the mainland, are for sales and to try out.

Before we bring you and your family to your overnight address, time to try on, taste and be tempted to test the limit of your credit card complete this first day.
