The Botanical Garden is located close to Georgetown, at an area called Waterfall. There are picnic spots as well as an area for other activities.
Cannon Ball Tree
The very fascinating Cannon Ball Tree will greet you when you enter the Botanical Gardens. Don't worry though, it won't blast you away. And the flowers are quite fragrant.
Penang Clan Jetty - Chew Jetty
The Chew Jetty at Weld Quay (pronounced "key"). This was one of the dozen or so jetties which were owned by the many Chinese clans here. Today there are many families who still live on these stilt houses as they did long time ago.

Penang Fruit Stall
A good stop along the way if you are going on a round island tour. The location of this fruit stall is in the northwestern hilly part of the island. Here you will see cloves and nutmegs fresh on the trees. Not to mention passing by many durian orchards.
Penang High Court
The newly renovated High Court Building in Light Street.
In little India, you will be able to find many stalls like this one selling Indian sweets and delicacies. This lovely candy sells for only RM1 a piece. Yum yum.
Kek Lok Si Temple
One of the must see attractions in Penang. The Kek Lok Si temple. Best the get up there through the steps which is almost like a mini shopping mall. These stalls sells some pretty good souvenirs of the island, and at very competitive prices too. Of course, you'll have to exercise your bargaining skills.
Pitt Street Chinese Temple
One of the most successful Chinese temples on the island. The Pitt Street Kuan Im (Goddess of Mercy) Temple. Here you may do a kind deed by 'releasing birds'. All for RM6 a pair.
St. George's Church
This is the beautiful St. George's Church. Built 1819 and is today the oldest functioning Anglican church in South East Asia.
