Head into Penang’s unspoiled countryside to the Thai Buddhist Temple, which houses one of the world's longest reclining Buddhas, and visit the extremely ornate Burmese Buddhist Temple nearby. Then browse the intricate printed-cloth art at the Penang Batik Workshop, before a scenic coastal ride along the stunning bays of Batu Ferringhi. Stroll through the beautifully manicured gardens and walk-in aviary of Entopia by Penang Butterfly Farm, enjoy a first-hand look at the local produce at a fruit and spice stall, and observe the tranquil way of life in Malay villages, as you learn why they build houses on stilts.
