Our Family Hiking Experience at Bukit Besi

We recently went on a hiking trip with our preschooler to Bukit Besi, and it was an incredible experience that we will cherish forever. Though we did not hike until the summit, it was still an amazing adventure that we thoroughly enjoyed.

The trail starts with an uphill walk via the paved road

Using the AllTrails app to navigate, we set out on our hike with our little one, eager to explore the beautiful surroundings. Initially, we were unable to find the trail using Komoot app, so we were grateful to have the AllTrails app to guide us.

Once you reach here, turn left to the forest trail!

As we made our way through the lush green forests, we were constantly amazed by the stunning scenery that surrounded us. Our son was thrilled to be outdoors and kept pointing out various plants, animals and insects that he saw along the way.

The trail was nice ❤️
Every forest looks unique to us
Hiking with a clear sky 🌌

Though we did not hike until the summit, we found several viewpoints that offered breathtaking views of the city. The vistas were simply breathtaking, and we took several breaks to sit and admire the scenery.

One of the things that we appreciated most about the hike was the fact that it was not too challenging for our little one. While there were some parts that require using rope due to many rocks and the top part of the hike seemed to be a bit too challenging for preschoolers, there were still plenty of areas that were perfect for families with young children. However, do bear in mind that our preschooler has went for hiking since he was 2.5 years old, so I wouldn’t say it is a good place to bring if your little one is a beginner, but a good one if she already has some experience.

Pure happiness 🥰

Overall, we had an incredible experience hiking at Bukit Besi with our preschooler. The trail was easy to follow with the help of the AllTrails app, and the scenery was absolutely stunning. We highly recommend this hiking trail to anyone looking for a fun and family-friendly outdoor adventure.

A Fun and Educational Trip to Petrosains with Our Preschooler

We recently took a trip to Petrosains with our preschooler and had a blast! The interactive exhibits and activities made for a fun and educational experience for both our son and us.

One of our favorite exhibits was the Energy Capsule, which took us on a virtual journey through the various forms of energy and how they power our world. We were able to ride the capsule and watch the informative video presentation and throughout our ride.

Another exhibit we enjoyed was the Origami Apprentice, where we got to try our hand at creating origami shapes. There were no assisting staff, but we had fun experimenting with the paper and creating our own designs.

The Wind Table was also a highlight, with a wind machine that flew papers in the shape of cones. It was amazing to see the papers take flight and our son was thrilled to see the wind in action.

Finally, we were transported back in time with the Geotime Diorama exhibit, which showcased the geological history of Malaysia. The exhibit was informative and visually stunning, with lifelike displays of ancient creatures and landscapes.

Overall, our trip to Petrosains was a wonderful family experience. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and educational day out with their children.

Campsite Review: Colina Camping & Glamping by Le Quadri Hotel KL

We recently had the opportunity to experience Colina Camping & Glamping by Le Quadri Hotel KL, and we have to say, we were thoroughly impressed.

Among the arts our preschooler did to entertain himself

We stayed in a rented camping tent, which was comfortable and cozy. Unfortunately, it rained during our stay. We didn’t have the chance to cook our own food as planned, but the pre-cooked meals based on the menu we chose were delicious and satisfying.

One of the highlights of our stay was the small field located within the camping site, which was perfect for playing football with the kids. It was an excellent way to keep the little ones entertained while we enjoyed the serene surroundings.

The field ❤️

In the morning, we were provided with breakfast based on the menu we had chosen. The breakfast was filling and delicious, and it was a great way to start our day before heading out for further adventures.

Although we didn’t have the chance to explore all the amenities, we appreciated the efforts made by the staff to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Overall, we would highly recommend Colina Camping & Glamping by Le Quadri Hotel KL for families looking for an immersive outdoor experience without sacrificing comfort and convenience.

One of the standout features of the hotel is its mini library, which is a treasure trove of books for all ages. As a book lover herself, Shafa was thrilled to see such a well-curated selection of books. The cozy seating areas make it the perfect spot to curl up with a good book and spend a lazy afternoon. We appreciated the effort put into creating a space that promotes reading and education, and we can imagine families with children would also enjoy spending time in the library together.

Resort Review: Swiss Garden Beach Resort Kuantan

We recently stayed at the Swiss Garden Beach Resort Kuantan and had a wonderful experience. The resort is located right on the beach, which provides stunning views of the South China Sea. The staff were friendly and accommodating throughout my stay, and the facilities were well-maintained and clean.

Attraction Review: The Habitat Penang Hill

The Habitat Penang Hill is a must-visit destination for families with young children and seniors looking for a fun and educational experience. Nestled in the heart of the Penang Hill forest, this eco-tourism attraction offers an immersive and interactive adventure that is both exciting and educational.

Shafa’s mom & Yusof’s happy, welcome look 😁

As a family with a toddler and a senior citizen, we were delighted with the range of activities that The Habitat had to offer. The highlight of our trip was the Nature Trail, which is a guided walk through the forest. Our toddler was fascinated by the sights and sounds of the forest, while our senior family member was impressed with the knowledgeable guide who shared interesting facts about the flora and fauna.

Another highlight of The Habitat is the Canopy Walk, which is a suspended bridge that spans across the treetops. Although it can be a little nerve-wracking for those with a fear of heights, the walk is a thrilling experience that provides a unique perspective on the forest.

Our toddler always leads the way!
Shafa’s mom seems happy!
It’s a long (and high) walk!

Next was the Curtis Crest Treetop Walk. The Treetop Walk is a 13m HIGHEST PUBLIC viewing platform located on the plateau just above the Mid-Point Rest Area and Museum. Designed to handle up to 120 people at a time, it offers mesmerizing 360-degree views of Penang, including George Town, and serves as the highest public viewing point on the island. On a clear day the islands of Langkawi can be seen in the distance.

The guide was kind enough to take our family photo 🥰

Overall, we highly recommend The Habitat Penang Hill to families with young children and seniors. The attraction is well-maintained, and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The range of activities on offer ensures that there is something for everyone, and the educational aspect of the experience makes it a worthwhile visit. If you’re planning a family trip to Penang, The Habitat is a must-visit destination.

Penang Hill Day Trip With Family

It’s been ages since we last updated this blog. Shafa has been busy juggling her freelancing jobs and homeschooling our son, so there’s very little spare time in between. Nevertheless, we are doing our best to update the blog everytime we have the chance to.

As you can read in our previous post, we had a chance to visit Penang some time ago and stayed in Tune Hotel Penang. While we’re there, we used most of our time to explore Penang as a family of five, which includes a toddler and an elderly. It was tough, but we managed!

One of the many experiences we had was visiting the Penang Hill (also known as Bukit Bendera) and riding the Penang Hill Funicular Train. The nearest parking was full, but worry not, there are friendly locals nearby that will happily assist you to park (with fee, of course). And they will even show you the shortcut to get to the train station! It took quite a few minutes walk to the station from where we parked, and the walk was steep. We had to ask Shafa’s mom every few minutes whether she’s OK (because she’s 70), while at the same time chasing our toddler who was busy exploring.

We were really excited to get on the train. As we’re boarded the train and finally departed, we were surrounded by a lot of greens. Nature at its best! A bit of information, the Penang Hill Funicular Railway has the steepest tunnel track in the world. Plus, it is also the longest track in Asia. Very interesting, indeed!

There are a lot of attractions at Penang Hill, but our favourite is especially the nature. We will write about our visit to The Habitat in our next post (more commitments), but aside from The Habitat, there are also Nature Walks, Monkey Cup Garden and many more. So much fun! Sorry for lack of picture in this post, as we were busy with our little explorer.

So, next time when you visit Penang, don’t forget to visit Penang Hill and ride the funicular train. Make sure to book the Fast Lane (like us) for a super convenient trip, with little or no queue needed!

Tune Tour Episode 2: Tune Hotel Penang

We’re so excited to share with you the second Tune Tour that our family experienced, after our first experience at Tune Hotel KLIA2 . Read more to learn about *drum roll* Tune Hotel Penang!

What’s best about this particular Tune Hotel (aside from the price) is its location. Tune Hotel Penang is located in the middle of food heaven in Georgetown! We saw a lot of eateries nearby, among them is the famous Continental Bakery.

Continental Bakery – one of the famous eateries near Tune Hotel Penang

To give you an idea of its awesome location, here’s a hint. It’s just a walking distance to Nagore Square, where you will be overwhelmed by the choices of restaurants.

Nagore Square – spoilt with many choices of restaurants

For us, the best part is having The Alley located near the hotel. We frequented the shop a few times during our stay. Totally love the beverages there – we are a huge fan of The Alley!

Before we go on about the foods in Penang, let’s have a look around Tune Hotel Penang . The lobby is located at Level 2, so hop on the lift once you entered the premise to check in!

Among the promotions at Tune Hotel Penang

We were briefed prior to our visit by the Hotel Manager, Mr. Auzae, and he informed that Tune Hotel Penang is collaborating with a number of eateries to offer some discounts for the guests. You can see some of them in the above picture. Cool, isn’t it?

Here’s how it looks like at the lobby in Level 2. Check in time starts at 2 p.m. and check out time is at 11 a.m. – it’s quite early compared to other hotels.

Simple cute decoration of our room

Upon entering the room, we were greeted by a simple cute decoration, with a warm message attached to the towel. We were so touched!

Compact bathroom concept at Tune Hotel Penang

As you can see, the concept of the room and bathroom of Tune Hotel Penang is similar to that of Tune Hotel KLIA2 , whereby everything is compact and neat. Of course, that signature sign on the bathroom’s glass door too!

You’re seeing another door? That’s right, because our room is connected to Shafa’s mom room. Not bad if you’re coming with a plus one (or two)!

The view from the room was not bad. We manage to see some greens and buildings!

View from our room in Tune Hotel Penang

Do note that Tune Hotel Penang doesn’t have a hotel restaurant, but who needs that when you’re in a food-heaven town? We particularly recommend having dinner at Hameediyah Restaurant and Sham Hammer Ikan Bakar Special while you’re in Penang!

JenjalanKami at Hameediyah Restaurant

Let’s not forget to take some beautiful shots at the iconic Penang Bridge! Travel to Penang is not complete without that.

And so that ends our review for Tune Hotel Penang. We love this hotel for its price and location! Stay tuned to know about the one must-go attraction if you’re in Penang in our upcoming blog post. Hint: Best for family travellers who love nature!
