Today we took the train up Penang Hill which is 800 metres above sea level and boasts stunning panoramic views of Georgetown.

After yesterday’s trekking I was happy to get a train up to the top of the hill. It was a good 10 degrees cooler on top, only 23 degrees then!

Time to cool off!

After the long trek to the top it was time to rest for forty minutes or so, and what a stunning view to look at. My hair looks a little crazy as you may have noticed!

Stunning view

When we got to the lighthouse at the top, the view was totally worth the hardcore climb. We could see sandy bays on both sides of the Island and for miles and miles out to sea.

Matt says...

Yep, it was worth the trekking in 33 degree heat!

View of Twins

Wed 19th October 2011

Our second dive site is called Twins, where two huge rocks rise out of the sea. This panoramic view shows you exactly the kind of location we’re experiencing.

If you look closely at the centre of the picture you can see some air bubbles rising to the surface. These are from another group of divers on our boat who are already diving.

Just before our second dive, we witnessed our first rain storm on Koh Tao. You can see it raining on the right hand side of the photo!

 

View of Turtle Bay

The boat moored at Turtle Bay beach after we swam cross the blue lagoon. This entirely secluded beach is where turtles choose to lay their eggs every evening.
