Kampung Agong, a very interesting place located near to Kepala Batas, about 45 minutes drive from George Town. It has Bali-inspired swing-tie-to-coconut-tree and picturesque bird nest spot. Instead of having a Balinese green terrace backdrop, Kampung Agong however has its own charm – the green paddy field.
Instagram-fans must visit this place as it could easily took up a couple hours there just to take good shot. Best of all, entry fee is RM5 for Malaysian only. For local, it’s worth taking the trip to here, but if you are traveling to Penang for the first time, consider this only when you have finish touring the beautiful George Town, and it’s not easy to get here unless you drive.
There’s a stall selling fresh coconut, do not expect pandan-ish sweet coconut, but it’s refreshing enough as you can catch real action of plucking coconut.
Note: Remember to clear your pocket, or zip your bag well when you are on the swing. Why? One of us dropped our iPhone into the muddy paddy field while on the swing, luckily it didn’t gone far and iPhone 11 has a good IP rating!
