  • Thoughtful tourism that superbly reflects the sustainability movement in Malaysia. I hope they manage to get the protection from developers they so desperately need. Very important for future generations to be able to experience nature, so close to our cities. Helpful and friendly guides. The shop has some interesting items and offers further education. Would love to see an overall improvement in the food but the coffee was excellent.
  • While the actual habitat was a lovely place to walk around, our 4 boys were keen to zip line. We arrived at Penang Hill and spoke to the lady at the marquee, she advised that no need to book anything just come when we are ready for transport to entrance, so we did a few things and then headed up to the entrance to be told that there were actually sessions for the activities and that the next 3 were already booked out - upset kids to say the least, kind of ruined a great day considering we could have booked as soon as we arrived and then done our other things.
  • The entrance ticket price is a little expensive. There is a free shuttle car to fetch you to and back. Best attraction are the tree top walk and a suspension bridge. There are some area closed for maintenance from time to time. Other things you see in there are trees, flowers, animals, mountain view and sea view . They do provide drinking water (water dispenser) along the track. Do ask for weather status before you purchase any ticket, you don't want to caught in a rain in the middle of the jungle.
  • Excellent quiet place for coffee, cheese cake and lunch as well as designer souvenirs. Among trees in the rain forest. Transparent glass building well designed.
  • The Habitat is a fantastic place to visit. It would be worth going to Penang just to take in this place. We arrived early evening to see the sunset and spectacular views. The free guided nature tour that we took after dark was very good for pointing out things that we wouldn't have seen if walking alone including a Tarantula spider and a Flying Lemur. The canopy and treetop walks take you up into and above the trees, something that is a very unique experience. Educational, inspiring and entertaining.
