Penang Waterfall

Batu Ferringhi Waterfall Track

I caught the bus from Georgetown and arrived at Batu Ferringhi. I got off opposite the Hard Rock Cafe and walked around looking for my high-rise apartment Airbnb. I found it and settled in, then went for some Indian lunch – rice, chicken and vegetables. Later in the afternoon, I wandered along the creek below the apartment, then went up the track to the waterfall.
