    Itinerary

    This tour is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and convenience to do the tour at your own pace.

    This Scenic Tour of Georgetown, Snake Temple and Penang Island around the outskirts of Georgetown will take you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You will see the actual process of batik making and other cottage industries.

    The tour then takes you on a meandering drive around the island passing through fruit orchards and quaint villages. Next is a stop at a fruit stall to show you a variety of tropical fruits harvested locally.

    Finally, visit the island's famous Snake Temple. It is filled with the smoke of burning incense and a variety of pit vipers. Though they are believed to be rendered harmless by the by the incense, the snakes have had their venom sacs removed – just to be on the safer side!

    Last stop will be at the Oeding & Erdel (OE) jewelry factory where you be taken on a tour of the factory and shown the eight stages of how jewellery is created by master craftsmen.

    After a tour of this interesting and fascinating island you will be taken back to your hotel where your tour ends.
