Flag-raising Mountain is the highest point in Penang. You can see a panoramic view of Penang. We bought a round trip cable ticket, 30 cents for an adult, and it was a good deal. It takes about half an hour for the cable car to queue up. There are quite a few people sitting in it. It's crowded and they basically have to stand. This cable car is a very exciting cable car, especially on the return journey, the road is very steep, and sometimes there will be cars, parking to avoid, I feel more exciting than Sky Bridge SKYCAB. After reaching the top of the mountain, it was very comfortable, because the wind was very strong and cool, which made people relaxed and happy. Walking up from the viewing platform is the way up the mountain. There are hints that monkeys should be careful. But we did not see monkeys on this day, so that we ran to a path where no one was walking in order to find monkeys. We only smelled the smell of monkeys, but did not see monkeys. But as the road grew darker and darker, we dared not go on and had to go back. A little bit of the viewing platform is a gourmet square, where you can come to eat when you are hungry.
In addition to street graffiti art, Penang, Malaysia, is the flag-raising mountain can walk, the scenic spot is a little way away from the city, you can use grab taxi software to taxi, very cost-effective. The day we went to was Sunday. There were many people and long lines waiting for the cable car to go up. So we bought a fast-track ticket, which was twice as expensive as usual. It was a wise choice because the weather was bad. After going up, it rained. The cable car in Qishan had its own characteristics. The slope was very inclined. It felt very exciting to go straight up. Up to the mountain is a resting place, there are restaurants and shops, and then walk up, it is the top of the mountain, because the drizzle and mist can not see the scenery, there are many love locks on the top platform, adding a scenic line. Downhill is still a cable car, straight down, very exciting.
Flag-raising Mountain (Malay: Bukit Bendera), also known as Penang Hill, is 830 meters above sea level. The air in the mountains is fresh and the view is wide. On rainy days, clouds and mists will shroud like fairyland. When the weather is good, you can look at the beautiful scenery of Penang from afar. And after dusk, the city lights flashing, blurred night scenery is a different flavor. With the earliest cable railway system made in Switzerland in Asia and a small cable car system, Lifting Flag Mountain has made it easy for tourists to go up and down since 1923. Uphill trains pass through steep hillsides and transfer to another train on the hillside to reach the top of the mountain. In March 2013, after the cable car was renewed, the speed increased, and the whole journey took about 30 minutes. Along the way, you can see beautiful villas. There are many resinous pine plants on both sides of the railway. There is an Indian temple on the top of the hill and an owl museum. There are all kinds of strange owl works, which are worth seeing. Because the Qi-raising Mountain is not far from the Jile Temple, the Qi-raising Mountain and the Jile Temple can be planned together when planning a trip.
From the city to the entrance by bus 204, you can get on the top of the hill by mini-train. Foreigners can get tickets to and from 30 people. The scenery on the hill is really good. There is a Hindu temple, a Malaysian church on the hill, as well as previous houses, owl hall, love corridor and so on. If you don't enter these small attractions, you can only walk around for about half an hour to 45 minutes. The small trains on the hills only run for a long time, basically waiting until they are jammed slowly. So when there are fewer people, it takes about an hour and a half on a one-way trip, and the real train takes about eight minutes. The time to go is Friday. There are not many people. There is no queue. It is not recommended to go on weekends, because many people have to wait for a long time.
The whole city of Penang can be seen from the top of the flag-raising hill. Be sure to avoid the weekend because there are so many tourists. At the foot of the mountain by cable car, to the top of the mountain, there are some paid sightseeing spots. The top of the hill can walk for about two hours. The air in the mountains is very good. There are many green plants. Jile Temple and Liqi Mountain can be visited together.
The highest peak of Penang Island, more than 800 meters above sea level, has the earliest cable railway system made in Switzerland in Asia. It is similar to a mountain climbing train, and the speed of the small train is fairly fast. So it's easy to go up and down the mountain. During the day, you can overlook the city of Penang. When the lights come up, they are like stars. The breeze is gentle and comfortable.
This time in Penang feel the most worthwhile, the most fun, the most reluctant place! Although many people went up the mountain on Sunday, they really forgot their worries when they saw Penang more than 800 meters away. It takes 30 RM for foreigners to ride on cable cars and 10 RM for Malays. If only China had such an unequal policy! But tickets are expensive everywhere in China!
The most worthwhile place to go is to sit in the first row of the cable car downhill. Video shot. The mountains are cool and you can see the panorama. Love Lock is a beautiful photograph. The Indian temple is being repaired. The Malay temple has taken its appearance, but it has not entered.
Betelnut Mountain is the highest point in Penang! Just in time for the good weather, you can see the Strait of Malacca clearly at the top of the mountain! The small train up the hill is a scenic spot that can not be missed in Penang. It looks more than sixty degrees, but it is very smooth on the train without the feeling of gradient. We had the privilege of sitting in the first carriage next to the driver. The scenery is good.
Buy the ordinary ticket, line up for 40 minutes to go up the hill, because it is the weekend, the mountain scenery is pleasant, look around Penang, down the hill for 20 Ma coins decisive express ticket, down the mountain queue is too desperate, just down the hill rainstorm.
