If you’re looking something to do in Penang with some spare time, would recommend that you take this experience. It’s not too tiring and the host (Goh) is very thoughtful and will take his time to make sure that you are having a good time which is the most important part of the experience. He won’t hesitate to also cater the experience differently for you if you wanted to. The cycling overall was very easy and short for us. Goh spent time taking nice photos of us which we do appreciate but personally we liked more of an adventure haha. So he took our feedback in and spent more time cycling with us. Rest assured the photos came out really nice so thank you Goh! For being a great host and for spending extra time with us that day to show us around Penang neighbourhoods.

Goh was very punctual and helpful. I was well taken care of and he even made sure I have enough water to stay hydrated 😂 Goh was a good photographer and guide, he knows all about how to take a good photo at nice spots! The gloomy day did not stop him for taking nice photos of me. After the tour he even brought me to some superb nice local food! I had the nicest food at where he brought me. He’s also someone nice to chat with. Highly recommend to everyone!

In one word, this experience was magical. And that was because of this amazing combination of the location, the activity and the most incredible host, Mr Goh. I would like to cover each one separately. The location - it is at the countryside in an area called Balik Pulau. It is quite far from Penang City, from areas like Georgetown. It will take almost 45-50 minutes to drive down. But, the way is beautiful and it is worth it to travel this far for this experience. The area is full of paddy fields and sparse population. You get to experience the real countryside whereby you see farmers harvesting paddy. The activity - it is an adventure like no other on bicycles. Mr Goh, takes you first to a cycle renting place. Here we chose 2 X double riding bicycles. One was for me and my wife. And the other was for my two daughters, 18 years and 10 years of age. My wife doesn't know how to cycle, but yet both of us managed beautifully. Yes, there is quite a bit of cycling to be done for almost 1 hour in total, but not continuously. With enough stops and rests. Only in the evening while coming back to the starting point after sunset, it requires quite a bit of cycling and you might get a bit tired. But, nothing's worth it without a bit of hard work and adventure. And this tour is worth everything. So, after picking up your bicycles, you are taken to the paddy fields to experience paddy harvesting. You cycle through a mix of concrete and gravel roads, but all easy to ride on. Mr Goh who accompanies you everywhere also on a cycle, will take many pictures of you with lovely backgrounds and great posing ideas. This lasts for almost an hour before you start moving towards 2 sunset points next to the sea. Here you have to do a bit of trekking and reach those end points like places which overlook the setting sun on the sea. It is beautiful. The sunset is wonderful to watch and experience. You spend another hour before you ride back to the starting point which takes about 20 minutes of non-stop cycling. Once you deposit back your cycles, it is dark already. Mr Goh then takes you for dinner at a local street food place which is fantastic. He rides on his motorbike and you follow him. It took us half an hour to reach the dinner place which is an area with full of food stalls and in between are many tables to sit and enjoy fantastic local food. Mr Goh does all the ordering after doing a check on your preferred diet. The fried kway teow is simply fantastic. And then the satay. And then the coconut apom. Finally you finish dinner and say your goodbyes to Mr Goh. Few things to keep in mind. The tour starts at 5 pm and finishes around 9.30 pm after which you have to drive back wherever you are staying. Please wear sports shoes. Also eat something before you start as you will feel very hungry in between the tour. Wear clothes which cover your body and protect you from mosquitoes. But wear light clothes as it is hot and you will sweat after all the cycling. Mr Goh will give you water bottles, mosquito repellent and cycle torches to help riding back after sunset. Lastly about our host - Mr Goh. One word for him. He is such a wonderful person. Friendly, funny and always taking care of you. And to top it all he is your personal photographer and he will take hundreds of these fantastic photographs which he will later share with you on google drive. Never before in any tour did we get so many photographs of ours and each and every one is so good. That’s what makes this magical and builds a bond with him. You actually feel bad when you part ways. He is such a selfless person who takes care of you all the time and always working hard to give you a good experience. Our family only wants to say a BIG THANK YOU to him! I would very strongly recommend that you do this magical tour with Mr Goh!
