Batu Ferringhi is the most popular destination among tourists visiting Penang. Located along the north coast of the island, it is famous for its long stretch of golden beach, numerous venues for food, holiday resorts ranging from local wooden huts to jaw-dropping 5 start resorts, hawker centres and a very popular evening roadside market.

We just love the sight of water lilies. A collection of photos taken from our visit to the Penang Botanical Gardens. Plenty more to do and see on site and definitely worth a visit.

A collection of photos taken from our visit to the Penang Butterfly Farm in Teluk Bahang. Plenty more to see on site and definitely worth a visit.
Located in the northern region of the Island, the Penang Butterfly Farm is at Teluk Bahang, approximately 20 minutes from Batu Ferringhi.
Apart from butterflies, other insects, reptiles and amphibians are also on display and is well received by children and adults alike.
Photographers and enthusiasts won’t be disappointed as there are many different species of butterfly in the enclosed garden. Don’t forget your telezoom and macro lenses.
If you turn up in bright coloured clothes, chances are you will have a butterfly standing on you, a perfect photo opportunity.
Even for the little ones, there are plenty to do and see. Simpy give them a digital camera and they will be happy snapping away.
To make it even more interesting for the children, the farm invented a number of characters based on insects, reptiles and animals.
A Nature Guided Tour is also available inside the farm for all visitors.
These characters are seen on displays, signs, info graphics and brochures and in the merchandise store.
My daughter’s favourite is Orni, a white butterfly with spotted wings, a present from her uncle.
To avoid queues, a weekday visit is recommended. Public buses or taxis are available to take visitors from town or Batu Ferringhi right up to the Butterfly Farm.
What is nearby: Also situated not far from the the farm is the Teluk Bahang Forest Park. For those planning to it make it a full day in Teluk Bahang, these two destinations will provide you with plenty to do and see. The other place which may be of interest in Teluk Bahang is the water dam.
