There are various eco-friendly attractions in Penang that make an impact on the environment. The Tropical Fruit Farm and the Tropical Spice Garden are two attractions that are worth a visit.

The Tropical Fruit Farm on the road from Teluk Bahang to Balik Pulau is a 25-acre site with more than 250 types of tropical and sub-tropical fruits. They are are doing their “green” bit by planting and preserving not only all types of local fruits, but fruits from other countries.

You can visit the farm any day of the week between 9am to 5pm, no booking is required. The tour costs RM35 adult and RM28 children and includes a 30 minute guide of the farm and an all you can eat fruit buffet and fruit juice. I do think the tour is a little rushed, but the fruit buffet makes up for it.

Once an abandoned rubber plantation, the Tropical Spice garden is now a beautiful and harmonious eight acre mecca of over 500 species of tropical flora from around the world. There are three designated trails to explore – the Jungle Trail, Ornamental Trail and Spice Trail, all lasting around 30-45 minutes.

What makes the Spice Garden eco-friendly is that many natural and recycled materials were used in its development and the garden uses only organic fertilizers. They also encourage the recycling of rubbish.

After exploring the gardens, you can check out the Spice Garden shop with a range of local crafts and spa items. Feeling hungry? Try the Tree Monkey Thai restaurant with what must be the nicest view in Penang.
