For a cool retreat and fabulous views of Georgetown City, take a half-hour cable funicular train ride up from the Air Hitam railway station, which is in itself quite an experience. At its peak of 800m above sea level, savor overwhelming views of the terrain and glimpses of the built-up environment, fauna and flora of Penang's highest peak. Nature lovers can opt to take a six-kilometre hike up by nature trails accessible from the Botanical Gardens. Holiday bungalows are available.
