Hello Penangites! While we are constantly appearing on your feed sharing the best food deals to look out for, today, things will be different. We’ll be sharing this rather important piece of news. The Penang Hill funicular train will be shut down from 19th to 28th April 2021.
Penang Hill Funicular Train To Close From 19th-28th April 2021
Most of us will hike up Penang Hill over the weekend or sometimes take the funicular train to head to Kopi Hutan. So if you regularly take the train up to Penang Hill, we have news. For 9 days, the funicular train will be disrupted.
According to the Penang Hill Corporation, the closure will take place for 9 days. During this 9 days, no train service will be operating. And the reason for the closure is for the Penang Hill Upper Station refurbishment works (Phase 4).
If you’re still thinking to reach the top of Penang Hill during the shutdown period, then you can opt for the privately-operated jeep service from Penang Botanic Gardens or the existing hiking routes.
As of right now, there is a temporary ticket counter located nearby Cliff Cafe for visitors looking to purchase a return ticket.
