Penang is a scenic coastal city situated on the northwestern part of Malaysia. It is one of the most economically vital regions in Malaysia and it is the second largest city by population.
Among the thirteen states of Malaysia, Penang is the only state with a Chinese ethnic majority. 59% of the population on Penang Island is of Chinese ethnicity, such that Mandarin, Cantonese and other Chinese dialects, and English are used in everyday life.
Penang became a British crown colony in 1867 until 1945. A common law legal system is upheld and English is used for business dealings and contracts. Its capital city of George Town is recognised as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site for its beautifully preserved East meets West heritage buildings.
Penang comprises of two components – “Penang Island” and “Seberang Perai” on the Malay Peninsula. Where Hong Kong has Victoria Peak with an elevation of 552m accessible via the Peak Tram, Penang has Penang Hill perched 833m above sea level reachable by taking a short ride on the Penang Hill Railway. Penang Island is mountainous with limited developable land.
Like Hong Kong, Penang has been voted time and again as having one of the best food, particularly street food, in the world. It is known for its Char Koay Teow, Assam Laksa, durian and “unforgettable fish”.

From the guardhouse leading to both towers is a path aligned with a canopy of forest trees. These provide a natural shade apart from a sight for sore eyes, additionally making way for a giant swing and cocoon seating that allow one to regale in Mother Nature’s arms. An infinity pool with Jacuzzi beds, seats and aqua gym equipment are available, against a waterfall backdrop supported by an aqueduct water feature. This sets the mood and sensation of being in a waterfall area in the forest.
There is a wading pool with water play equipment as well as forest concept play appliances and contraptions for children to enjoy fun-filled times outdoors. Here, climbing trees is not prohibited. Social gatherings are also encouraged with a two-storey lounge area complete with barbecue and dining facilities, plus a “green deck” that can be used as a party platform. Tennis courts, a half-court basketball court, relaxation pockets on timber decks and hammocks, places to lie down and kick off one’s shoes and just relax and take in the beauty of nature – there is an abundance of green features and nature-inspired activities specifically interwoven into this project development.
