Even if your abode is not set on a mountain top, there is still a chance that you will be given a glimpse of the spectacular nature reserve the Malaysian island gives home to. From the window of your hotel or Penang apartment, it is not impossible if you will see the peak of a mountain, or the spectacular vast ocean, or probably the greens surrounding you. Nature is a common sight in Penang, after all.

One recommended destination to get close to Mother Nature is the Penang National Park.

On April 2003, the Penang National Park (Taman Negara Pulau Pinang) was declared a national park. It lies in the northwest corner of Penang Island, boasting a very rich nature reserve and displaying a very extensive biodiversity.

Flora and fauna are its best in the park. Endangered and rare species of plants and animals can be seen freely lurking around the hilly and densely forested area. Trails are set up around the area so that everybody is given fair opportunities to lay eyes on the different beauty of life hidden in there.

There are eight beaches in the park, as well. These are open to people for relaxation but are well guarded by park officials and volunteers from possible human destructions. These beaches also serve as grounds for marine and coastal studies. Penang beach hotels are abundant on nearby towns.

Occupying a total land area of 1,266 hectares, it is the smallest national park in the world. But it serves as a wonder of Penang – and Malaysia – as it is a continuously developing proof of the country's rich and wonderful heritage.  Jungle trekkers, nature lovers and even photographers will certainly love the place.

For a bigger trekking adventure, you may visit the Bukit Mertajam Recreational Forest.

Ideal for camping and picnics, the Bukit Mertajam Recreational Forest in Penang, Malaysia is one attraction which tourists should never miss. Also called the Cheruk Tok Kun, this 37-hectare land flaunts hilly slopes adorned with a wide variety of flora and fauna, great for jungle trekking and sightseeing.

For trekkers, there are jungle tracks set up as guides. Signboards may be seen too. Along the way, people may encounter different animal species which inhabit the forest. Birds abound, as well as reptiles like the horned tree lizard and the poisonous Temple Viper. There are also sting bees along the trail so tourists are advised to take extra care.

One point of interest in the Bukit Mertajam Recreational Forest is the small waterfall which flows freely through the area. The water is cool and refreshing, and tourists are permitted to take a quick plunge. This natural feature is one indispensable factor contributing to the serenity of the atmosphere.

There are rest shelters around the forest for tired trekkers. At the base of the park, restaurants, pools, chalets and canteens are established for people, even kids, to enjoy.

A nature trip soothes tired souls but Penang hotels soothe the tired bodies. To help you with finding the most suitable hotel, visit HotelsinAsia.com.sg.
