Enjoy the morning drive along the famous stretch of Batu Feringghi beaches and the panoramic views of the ocean. A brief stop is made at a traditional fisherman's village before heading out to the Batik Factory to see and learn the intricate techniques of producing this exquisite Malaysian textile using wax and dye. After driving past a substantive dam and fruit plantations, we will stop at a fruit stall for an introduction to local fruits and spices such as nutmeg and clove. Next, proceed to the famous Snake Temple, also known as the 'Temple of the Azure Clouds' which was built in 1850. Here you can find venomous pit vipers coiled around the altars and various other parts of the temple.

Stop for a local lunch in preparation for a religious journey to explore the fascinating Kek Lok Si Temple, also known as the “Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas”. This is one of the most beautiful and largest Chinese Buddhist Temple complexes in South East Asia. At our last stop, we will ascend the Penang Hill or Bukit Bendera via a funicular train up to a height of 800 metres above sea level. This is Malaysia's oldest hill station and where panoramic views of the island and the mainland can be had.

On the way back, stop by at the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre to enjoy a half an hour workshop in pewtersmithing. Using basic hand tools, you will create a simple pewter bowl, using similar techniques to those used way back in the late 19th century. You may opt to be dropped off for some shopping at the Straits Quay Mall.
