Tour Description:

Enjoy a scenic drive to the Mainland through one of the world’s longest suspension bridge, the Penang Bridge, to the historical town of Taiping. Visit the TAIPING ZOO, located in a lovely natural setting of the Taiping Lake Gardens and close to the foot of the Larut Hill (Maxwell Hill). Set amongst streams, lakes and a sea of flora, the zoo is currently home to more than 180 species of animals, totalling up to 1,300 individuals. Next, enjoy a stroll at the picturesque TAIPING LAKE GARDENS, the first public garden constructed during the British rule in Malaysia, before visiting the CHARCOAL FACTORY. Established since the 1930s, learn the interesting process of how mangrove wood are turned into charcoal. This is a place filled with character where you’ll see the preserved techniques of producing charcoal – exactly the same methods used since the start of the factory.
