Batu Ferringhi Watersports

Who doesn’t like a splash by the beach? The public beach offers a range of watersports. Ride a jet ski and create your own waves. Jump on a banana boat and hang on or get tossed into the ocean. Enjoy panoramic views from the air parasailing. Alternatively, if you prefer laid-back beach activities: build a sandcastle with your kids, ride a horse and explore your surroundings.

Penang 3D Trick Art Museum

The Penang 3D Trick Art Museum is one of the fun things to do in Penang. Have a great time with your little ones observing mind-bending, optical illusion artwork. Encourage your kids to interact with pictures on the wall. Don’t forget to capture great shots of you and your children skydiving, docking at Clan Jetty,  and riding the Bullock Cart, just to name a few.

Upside Down Museum

Imagine if one day, gravity stopped working… would you strike a pose for a photo or let the opportunity slip by?
