A popular hiking trail amongst the Penang hikers, a hiking trail that leads to a place known as Emperor Villa 帝来山庄 (via Fig Tree Hill). The hiking trail has been there for quite some time but recently gained its popularity due to the quaint, attractive decor at Emperor Villa (around 45-minute walk from the entrance of the hiking trail). While the place is picturesque, the food is equally alluring. Imagine being rewarded a scrumptious meal after shedding off some sweat. The menu is pretty small- featuring the usual Hainanese Breakfast Toasts (with Soft Boiled Eggs and Coffee), some stir-fried noodles and some fried snacks. The prices are slightly higher than average but given that the place is quite remote, the price points are well-justified (and the food is delicious). To reach Emperor Villa, you will need to enter from Jalan Kenari- between Regency Heights Condominium and Sri Subramaniar Temple Sungai Ara.
Address: 496, Off Jalan Kenari, Mukim 10, Sungai Ara, 11900, Bayan Lepas, Penang.
