Orang Utan Island (half-day tour). Car transportation (Honda Civic 1800cc) included.


The Orang Utans are the three (Borneon, Sumatran & Tapanuli) exclusively Asian species of extant great apes. Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, Orang Utans are found only in the rain forests of Borneo and Sumatra.

The Bornean Orang Utans population declined by 50% in the past 60 years. The Sumatran Orang Utans populations declined by 80% in 75 years. Their habitat has decreased rapidly due to logging and forest fires, fragmentation by roads as well as the conversion of vast areas of tropical forest to palm oil plantations in response to international demand.

The trip involves crossing of the NEW Penang Bridge (24km) to Bukit Merah's Orang Utan Foundation and the OLD Penang Bridge (13. 5km) on the way back to Penang Island.

Tour recommended to passengers of:

-- Oceania Cruises, Silversea, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, Celebrity Millennium etc.
