Tour 2.0 Trails of the Lost Trades (Penang and Taiping)

The event Detail

#Facinatedallway  Georgetown, Penang, is blessed with a UNESCO world heritage title but much of its rustic charms have since vanished, dispelled rapidly by the continued development.

On this short excursion starting from across the Penang Straits, we take you riding along scenic trails to savor some forgotten scenes and trades.

The excitement of riding along beautiful singletrack, taking in sceneries, savoring culture, admiring forgotten trades, and witnessing unique lifestyles as we head on a trip to the “Rain City.”

Taiping, the city of peace, holds many of the first such as the museum, railway, and newspaper circulation. And while defined by water and lush greenery – the first capital of Malaya is worthwhile as your favorite gateway.

While sharing the same ingredients as Penang and Ipoh, Taiping has delightful food, elegant colonial architecture, and street art to a charming hill station and mangrove reserve.

Map & Location

The city of Georgetown may have been blessed with a UNESCO heritage title – but much of its rustic charm had vanished. On this overnight trip, we take you riding along unique trails to visit the forgotten trades. We start our discovery from an estate owned by an English Baron during the mid 19th century. A charming short vacation on 2 wheels that tell tales of the founding of Taiping. Taiping was recently the winner of the 3rd most tourism sustainable city in the world.
