However, Penang might just be a little different now from the last time you have been there. Grab your partner or your family along now to explore all the new and awesome attractions in Penang for your next holiday.

1. Komtar Rainbow Skywalk

Launched in December 2016, the Rainbow Skywalk - Windows of the Top Penang is a horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge with a glass walkway in George Town offering a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of Penang. It is located at the top of Komtar Tower, the tallest skyscraper, at a height of nearly 250 metres above ground (68th floor) and is the highest outdoor glass sky walk in Malaysia.

If you are there at night, you will get a spectacular view of the city’s skyline with thousands of lights emitting from the dark background. Also on the rooftop, Coco Cabana Bar & Bistro offers great tapas food and cocktails besides the great views.

3. Escape Waterplay Park

I’m sure many of us would have already visited the Escape Adventureplay Theme Park at Teluk Bahang. And now, it is time to revisit the place again for the next big thing – Escape Waterplay Park, which opened its doors in December 2017.

The water theme park will have 20 new attractions and featuring the world’s longest water slide spanning one kilometre. The slide’s fun journey begins with a 420-metre ascend by chairlift to the top of a hill, zooming down and pass Jalan Teluk Bahang beside a pedestrian link bridge and into a swimming pool at the end.

The hilltop will also be the start of other rides like the luge (downhill sleds), zip coasters and tubby slides, collectively known as Gravityplay which is slated to be opened by December 2018. Nevertheless, the entire place will be a different and wonderful experience as the saying goes “good things come to those who wait”.

Address: 828 Jalan Teluk Bahang, 11050 Penang, Malaysia

There are many museums in Penang, but this will surely catch your attention with its amazing concept. Taking one step beyond the existing 3D art painting techniques, Dark Mansion presents a new dimension of 3D art by incorporating the amazing glow-in-the-dark effect into the 3D paintings and artworks.

The third attraction is called the Infinity Room, which feature an “endless” glowing bridge and the sky covered with glittering creature.
