Hear From Others

We had never heard of Taman Rimba Teluk Bahang on our first visit to Penang two years ago — and now that we’ve been there, I am singing its praises to everyone I know.

The Penang Eco Park is a lovely excursion for people wanting to see some of Penang’s natural beauty. Located in the Teluk Bahang Forest Park, it is a great outdoor attraction with kids or a place to go on some nature hikes as it’s the start of many of the forest trails that go through the Forest Park.


Overall I would say it is worth spending time there if you are the kind of person like me who like natural environment a lot.
