Half-Day Penang Countryside Cycling Tour
USD 24.59
Overview

Escape to the countryside of Penang without the risk of getting lost on the way out of Georgetown on this action-packed half-day cycling tour. Your guide will lead you down lesser-explored paths and through rural areas and villages that only the locals know about. Cycling is a much better choice than walking, as you’ll be able to see so much more!

What to Expect
Join this small-group cycling tour to explore the different side of Penang, Balik Pulau. The tour will start at 7am where we will transfer you to Balik Pulau.

Exploring the town by bicycle has all the advantages of going by foot, combined with a much greater action radius and cooling breeze. If you want to experience Balik Pulau hideaways and countryside, touched by the charm of Malaysian way of country life at personal level, bicycle is a great way to do it. This tour will bring you to see local life in the Penang countryside.

Away from Balik Pulau town there is a labyrinth of minor roads, pathways and alleys. Cyclists are treated as pedestrians, so you can use bicycle to explore fruit orchard, plantation, mangrove, fishing village and dozens of traditional Kampung in Balik Pulau.

Great family adventure in Penang

We did the half day cycle tour to get a different perspective on Penang - beyond Georgetown and the beaches. It was great and we all loved it. We saw and learnt things that would have been beyond our reach as independent travelers like fishing...More
