Across the island are attractions such as the Penang Bird Park, the first and largest bird park in Malaysia with over 300 species of birds from all over the planet.
To go to the mainland, one either has to cross the Penang Bridge or take the ferry to Butterworth. We took the latter because it was extremely cheap (under RM2!) and provides a great view of the island from the sea.
There was a small show of birds doing tricks at 3PM daily. Although the birds are cute, they weren’t able to perform most of the tricks. So if you’re the same kind of traveler as we are, we wouldn’t recommend the Bird Park (sorry!).
We rode the ferry back to the island, and dropped by our favorite hangout, Tea Tac Toe near Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM),
Behold the Great Wall of Manga!
A tiring and humid day it was, credits to the sticky bay air, but it was a new thing to get out of the island after spending some weeks going around it.
