Top Things to do with kids at Penang – Making the little ones happier

The island of Penang is for everyone. Even the smallest kid in your family has things to engage in here, and this is why it's called one of the best destinations for family vacations. Here are some of the main things that you can expose your kids to when you are there.


Let them play at the Adventure Zone

It's an indoor playground where kids can try out mazes, padded play climbers, swinging steps, and many other enjoyable slides. This play area is open for kids daily from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm, and generally, a kid will need around 2 hours to try all the activities offered. Kids love playing hide and seek in this venue because quite obviously, it has many spots to hide behind quite smartly. Make sure kids wear socks and long sleeve tops when visiting the Adventure Zone, so that they are fully protected from possible accidents.


Go for a good swim with your kids

A good swim is a perfect way to end your busy day during a family vacation. So why don't you have a fun swimming session at the pool of your Penang hotel with your kids? Hotels the likes of PARKROYAL Penang Resort do have large pools, and some of them are specially reserved for kids. Kids can enjoy the slides, or just relax by the pool as much as they want in style.


Visit the Snake Temple

In 1850, a Buddhist priest called Chor Soo has built this temple and he wanted this temple to be a safe place for snakes. Ancient stories say that more and more snakes started coming in after he died and this shows how the name 'Snake Temple' came in to being. Even today, the temple houses many rare reptiles such as green tree snakes, but they say that these creatures are calm and they won't do any harm to anyone. In addition to the reptiles, you may also adore the Buddhist sculptures and carvings here with your little ones.


Explore the Penang Bird Park

If your kids love being with birds, why won't you take them to the first and the biggest bird park in Malaysia? Birds ranging from kingfishers, sunbirds to ostriches are all there, and they are here for breeding and conservation purposes. This bird park will surely be able to give you a very free vibe because wherever you go, the sounds of flamingoes, storks, and all other kinds of birds will follow you. In addition to the birds, there are also several species of deer, crocodiles, and turtles too for you to explore.


Head to Entopia

Entopia is the famous butterfly farm in Penang. This farm has more than 4000 colourful butterflies belonging to more than 100 species, and this farm has world-recognised fame as a breeding center as well. You can see the beauty of these insects, but do not try to touch them at any moment.
