Certainly worth a visit here but allow at least 11/2 hour for the zoo

After docking we met up with Wong and his mini bus and were driven across the new 24km long bridge joining Penang to the mainland then travelled an hour passed fresh water lakes and marsh land then into the mountains to the theme park at Laketown. Here a ferry took us across to Orangutan island where we were met by our guide. To see the Orangs we walked in a cage unfortunately not good for photography. They were separated from the cage by an electric fence about a metre away. Being clever animals they knew not to touch this and retrieved some fruit thrown to them using sticks. We were introduced to them by name and learnt about the hierarchy and personalities.
From here it was a 30 minute drive to the zoo. With perspiration dripping off us December we viewed what animals were not taking shelter before going to the museum. Here we viewed many of the Malaysian animals me missed at the zoo - stuffed. That was good - it was cool inside and the animals couldn't run away! There were many species we hadn't seen before.
A very full day with a diversity of scenery.

Great to be up close to these amazing animals. We met a teacher with a school group who were super friendly and took pic's of us with the kids.Good day out

The Iranian island was worth doing but would advise English speaking tourists not to the Taiping Zoo as the guide, even after repeated efforts to get him to translate into English completely ignored the request. The Perak Museum was worth doing though.
