Meet a driver at your hotel for an 8:45 departure to a traditional batik workshop, where you’ll start the day with a hands-on lesson taught by a batik expert. Use wax and dyes to make a hand-painted handkerchief that’s a unique souvenir of your time on Penang, and see local artists as they draw, color, and stamp batik patterns.
When the paint has dried continue to the Wet Market, where vendors from around the island bring their fresh produce and products—it’s the perfect place to see the building blocks of Penang’s celebrated cuisine, and soak up the friendly atmosphere of the community hub.
The next stop is a fishing village with gorgeous views of the coast; meet some of the residents to learn about local culture and traditions, and enjoy the chance to chat with local people. Visit a family home for a village-style lunch, then begin the return trip to your hotel, where this tour concludes.
