After a full day of exploration and adventuring, it is nice to just have an off day and spend it amongst the tranquil parks and gardens of Penang. Escape the heat of the city by heading uphill for cool temperatures or go for a walk with locals at their favoured park. Be rewarded doubly by hiking through a forest and ending up on a beach. Or if you are a casual botanist, learn more about local herbs, spices and fruits through inspiringly designed gardens and farms. An off day in Penang might be as rewarding as it is relaxing.
