The best attraction while in Penang.
Go to Penang hill lower station and buy a funicular / tram ticket to the top.
The climb is exiting and very steep, much steeper than HK hill ride.
Views from top is superb and there is a nice temple there further few steps, make sure to visit it.
Also there was some shady Bangla people selling some shady ticket for walk on love street kind of cheap stuff, probably copied from. Cheap movie.
Spectacular views if weather is clear. Opens till late so can enjoy night views. Also there was 2 story overpriced food court , simply crap.
A must visit.

Went there with my friends during school holiday (and yes, there's a lot of people...)

We arrived early in the morning and there were not much people at that time. A normal ticket would cost Rm12 to ride the funicular. Yet after we talked with the guide, he informed us that maybe we'll be stuck in line when we wanted to get downhill. So after thinking about what's best for us (since we're catching time); we've decided to buy tickets for the fast lane which cost us Rm40 per person. Tbh, the view was great but every other activities uphill need other payments to do so. It was a bit disappointing at that part... as it was pricey. Nevertheless, the view was great and it's great for those who loves to walk around with nature. Went down around noon and the station was packed with lots of people. I would advise you to not to come during school holiday huhu
Dont go during peak season!

Don't come during peak season, we line up to 2.5 hrs to get the ride on funicular.
There is only a 2 to 3 hrs walk when reach on the hill, not much activities can do besides to enjoy the cool fresh air.
We enjoy the restaurant at the hill but it is expensive to have a meal there.
Anyway, just to bring a kids to enjoy the funicular ride...
