Hello people. How are you? Malaysia’s Day ahead, Happy Malaysia Day! Woohoo.
So back in Penang few weeks back, I went to Cherok Tokun, the famous recreational forest at Bukit Mertajam. It’s a really very very very very short trip. It’s not 5 minutes, but I guess about 15 minutes, include using the toilet and buying food.
I was actually curious about this place and have heard about it from friends and Internet, and I wanted to know how it looks like and how to go, so I went to check it out the place with Hueisean as my guide to the place.
It’s pretty easy to go and you probably can find it with a GPS. I don’t really know how to write the guide here. So sorry.
The place is in fact similar to Botanical Garden in Penang, though it has smaller entrance, and it utilize the existing forest area and turn it into a recreation park. There’s jogging track and hiking trail for park lover.
There’s also store selling fruits and drinks, as well as a mini tea-house that allow you to enjoy some Chinese tea, and light Chinese dish like tea egg, mee tiao noodle.
The mini tea-house is the best thing at this place in my opinion, which Botanical Garden doesn’t have. Enjoy light meal, chit-chat with friends and enjoy the beauty of nature at the same time. It feels so good.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to try because I was in a hurry. Gonna go check back this place in other time. Have you been there before?
