The Rainbow Skywalk and Observatory Deck, THE TOP @ Komtar, Penang

We were in Penang during the recent school holidays and made it a point to challenge ourselves at THE TOP Rainbow Skywalk this time around.

When Ethan was younger, we went up to Genting fortnightly as we had the annual pass to their theme park then. It is only an hour drive from our house hence we don’t mind going up that often.
