Getting to Penang Hill
Getting to the top Penang Hill is relatively easy and there are numerous ways to go about doing it.
The most comfortable journey up the hill by far is The Penang Hill Funicular Railway. Located at Air Itam it takes you to the top of Penang Hill in air-conditioned comfort in a matter of minutes. It also affords the most spectacular views of the hill, and at 833m or 2,723 ft high, Penang Hill is quite something.
