This countryside cycling tour around Penang is a fantastic way to see some of the rural villages and natural bounty that Penang has to offer. The tour starts early at 7 a.m., when tourists will be picked up from their hotel and driven to Balik Palau, a town on the southwest district of the island that features old colonial architecture and an agricultural heritage. The guide will provide commentary about the surroundings while being on call to answer any questions.
After the town leg of the journey, the group will make their way along winding roads and into the countryside. There, you will cycle through old orchards and plantations, past mangroves and through fishing villages where the locals live traditionally in many ways.
There will also be the chance to visit a goat farm and try goat’s milk ice cream. The tour is a tranquil change of pace for families who have been spending time in bustling Georgetown.
