Penang Hill Timur Laut Pulau Pinang
You can either get here on a funicular train in 15 mins (RM 30/Rs. 455), or walk (5km, uphill). The view from here is fantastic, especially after sunset.The trail starts near the Penang Botanical Garden in George Town. If you prefer to take the train instead, there's one every few minutes from Air Itam, 7km from George Town.7. Indulge in the food of PenangThe street food in Penang is unparalleled. Even as a vegan, though my experience of the scene excluded many of the local favourites such as Assam Laksa and Oh Chien, I ate some of the best food I've ever had. Here's a more detailed guide to Penang's local cuisine.Cafes and sit-down restaurants are prevalent. Nasi kandar (rice and curry) restaurants in Penang are something of a legend, so make sure you sample as many as you can. For veggies/vegans, stop by Lilly's Kitchen, Luk Yea Yan and several other vegetarian places in Little India.Other mentions: You will inevitably walk by Khoo Kongsi, Camera Museum and several temples of Georgetown. Here's a great overview to help you pick. Also, if the weather and tides permit, a sampan boat ride to Monkey Beach in Penang National Park can be a great addition to your Penang itinerary. The boats leave from the jetty at the entrance of Penang National Park in Teluk Bahang.Have you visited Penang yet?

Hotel New Green
The best part about this hotel are it's people. The hotel owner Bisu Da himself arranged for all our trips to the various destinations like : Nathula Pass & Yum Thang Valley. Also since Gitanjali and me wanted a budget trip this hotel was just tailor made for us. This was my second visit to New Green and I am planning another visit soon :-) (Bisu Da - 9832007990 / 9474980702)
