Pulau Penang Day One

Penang Botanic Gardens

Well I made it to Penang. This morning I got my Grab and made it to the Botanic Gardens at about 8am. You had to wait until some people left before they let you go in, after taking your temperature. It was a bit overcast but no rain. Still, not many birds around. It was very disappointing to be honest. Maybe I am here at the wrong time of year.
