Penang's national park is very different from the hustle and bustle form the city, and it was a nice change of pace. At the registration counter, we were hounded by a boat captain who kept yelling at us to take his boat while the counter...More

Sorry for the late reply. You have to register at park HQ but there is no charge. Probably the office opens at 8.00 AM and it is situated at the entrance to the park
