A trail of beauty and history

loading Lily Pond at the Penang Botanic Gardens.

The Lily Pond Circular Walk is one of the most attractive and accessible hikes in Penang, and takes only a couple of hours even at our slow pace. For this reason it is one we come back to again and again. Recently we did the walk when my 69-year-old father was visiting us for a couple of weeks. He hikes regularly in the UK and is fit and healthy, but we didn’t want him to expire as a result of the heat and humidity, so a shorter hike than usual seemed to make the most sense.
