Botanical Gardens
This 30-hectare garden created in 1884 by the British, it was meant as a tribute to Charles Curtis, its first superintendent who collected botanical specimens from the surrounding hills - specimens which have since become significant samples in the world's major herbariums. The Gardens, which also features a waterfall, offers peace and tranquility amidst lush green surroundings, tropical plants and the colours of Penangs flora

The path around the lily pond offers access to tropical rainforest, only a leisurely 10-minute stroll from the garden’s gate. The gardens are also well-known for their bold Rhesus monkeys which roam in the gardens, but feeding them is forbidden. Two orchid houses provide comparison between cultivated hybrids
and wild orchid species.

Penang Hill
