Bukit Genting Hill, Penang

Bukit Genting Hill is a hill at Penang, not at Genting Highlands on Kuala Lumpur. This is the 2nd time I visit there. This was before Chinese New Year. My dad would like to take my brother to this place. To see sunset. This place is located at a road between Teluk Kumbar and Balik Pulau (take a left turn when you see huge water storage tank)

Its kinda a recreation place to let people relax and have Thai Food. As it was on top of a small hill, there are cool wind blowing on us. In front of the restoran, there are tons of picture in the message board indicating there are customers from all over the world had come to visit them. There even have handmade tins on decoration beside the message board. The best thing that price wouldn't increase at Chinese New Year. Because usually will increase dramatically during Chinese New Year.

1. Entrance: Open Daily
2. Brother at the "Gong Xi Fa Cai" banner
3. Message board of picture
4. Decoration made from can tin

The view from the restoran - Balik Pulau and the sea, I heard the sea there very clean as there as less access to that part. I live at Penang so long, but didn't went there before.

1,2,4. Garden View
3. Place to sit

Decoration on the hill side, took the photo from the place that people have dinner. It is very pretty at night when they open the lights.

The thai food here are delicous. RM150 for 7 dishes + desert + drinks. Price reasonable.

1. Fried Vegetable (Kangkung)
2. Otak otak
3. Green Curry - spicy
4. Panda Chickhen
5. Mango Kerabu
6. Tom Yam Seafood - very sour and spicy
7. Dessert
8. Spicy fish

I highly recommended, must make sure that your car to powerfull to get on top of the hill. the roads are somehow like Genting Roads, yet smaller and narrower.

We manage to snap some family pictures from it.
