Malaysians love to go on local road trips and one of our favourite places to visit is Penang, thanks to its delicious food (yes, we love eating 24/7) and beautiful attractions. But before you say that you’re bored of Penang, here’s ONE more reason for you make a trip there.
According to Penang Holiao, there is a new hidden gem in Penang and by the looks of it, it’s the most Instagram-worthy spot we’ve ever seen! Remember the stunningly-lit garden in the movie, Avatar that looks so surreal that it could only be seen in your wildest dreams?

Well, now you don’t have go to fall asleep to experience this magical scene because apparently there is a place in Penang that has been dubbed the Penang Avatar Secret Garden. Photos and videos of the location went viral on social media recently and we were equally enchanted by the images. I mean, just look at these gorgeous photos!
Try looking up while you stand directly under the lights <3
The mystical lights are draped on tree branches in a myriad of colours, which certainly dazzle ever so brightly from any angle. And since its main attraction are the dreamy lights, it is advisable to visit this secret garden when night falls, when the lights sparkle best.
Are you excited to know the exact location of this fascinating place? It is reportedly next to the Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe and behind Flat Uda located in Tanjong Tokong, which is situated by the beach. If you’ve never heard of it before, netizens say that’s because it is newly-opened!
Besides, the place is just as insta-worthy as it is night-time! Just look at that beach!
Pro tip: The parking lot is rather small, so your best bet is to park your car outside and take a short 10-minute walk to get in.
Address: Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe, 338, Jalan Tokong Thai Pak Koong, Tanjong Tokong, 11200 Tanjung Bungah, Pulau Pinang
BRB, planning my next road trip there right now!
