Worth the price overall 👍. Really well maintained. Very enjoyable rainforest walk.
While in the middle, came across a nature guide who was very friendly and informative - 💡would look into hiring one or waiting for a guided tour if going again.
Only negative ❌ I have is that the "free shuttle" that returns you back to the main entrance (train upper station) is only every 15-20 minutes and doesn't fit many people (it's a large golf buggy). If you choose to not wait and walk, it's 15-20 min walk along a road busy with cars and other golf buggies (on the upside, on the way there is one of the ℹ️ best view points of George Town).

One of the Top attraction in Penang. Taking the powerful electric train up the hill opens up a whole new world of forestry walk with many linked bridges that you might submerged yourself as one with the surrounding and habitat forgotten about time. It's definitely worth to spend half a day here. As the saying goes, If you have not been to the Habitat you have not been to Penang!

The habitat was a long waited trip. Went up the hill early in the morning. Go there before 8 to get more discount for the train tickets. The place could use more maintenance. The walk is full with surprises, it can easily take up to an hour to stop and enjoy the view and observe the tiny natural world.
The Curtis Crest Treetop walk was the best. It is the highest point in Penang with 360 view around the island with short ascent via staircase. Must visit Penang Hill if you are in Penang.

Came here during school holidays. It was very crowded and it took me almost 2 hours (3-5pm) to get into the funicular train. The habitat entrance was RM50 so it was considerably less crowded than other attractions and there's no queue. Enjoyed myself strolling through the quiet and well maintained space, it wasn't very long though, 1 hour is enough to explore. The Curtis Tree Walk is indeed a unique experience. I love it because there's barely anyone when I was visiting so it was kinda like a private area. If you don't particularly love nature or don't find Curtis an interesting attraction, you might want to skip the Habitat due to the price.

I give 5 stars because I managed to get the tickets with a lower price; only RM45 instead of RM60. If not, I’d give it 4.5 stars. To the nature lovers, this is your place. The smell, the sight, the cold, the atmosphere, they are just perfect. I recommend this place to those who come to Penang for first time. You’ve never been to Penang if you haven’t been here. The toilet is also very clean.
Suggestion: Wear comfy shoes (trekking or running shoes) if you come here. I wore my Asics running shoes and I do not have problem here. If you’re afraid of heights, please do not go to Curtis Walk. Curtis Walk is just A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
