Kampung Agong is a countryside “Agro Themed Park” located in mainland Penang. The park is a coconut grove beside the paddy fields, decorated with traditional countryside Malay structure and filled with cultural activities.
What to Expect?
Located in mainland Penang just 14 kilometres (a 20-minute drive) from Butterworth jetty terminal, Kampung Agong is a picturesque space surrounded by swaying coconut trees (there's an estimate of 500 trees here!) and traditional wooden kampung houses built on stilts. The coconut trees here look especially beautiful against a clear blue sky and vast paddy fields! For those accustomed to the city lights, Kampung Agong will provide you with a breath of fresh air and a glimpse of kampung life.
Kampung Agong has erected a range of traditional Malay houses - including jelapang padi, rumah kampung, all right beside the lush green of paddy field.
Located right by the paddy field, visitors can explore the lush greenaries surrounding it.
Kampung Agong was transformed by a private owner as an attempt to create a replica of olden kampung life. The owner named the place 'Agong' after the nickname of his grandfather who was the owner of the coconut farm since 1942. After Kampung Agong started attracting droves of visitors in 2019, the owners decided to upgrade it into a visitor-friendly space.
Now visitors can take photos all around the space as well as participate in a variety of village activities including coconut picking, fishing, putting on traditional attire, and learning how to weave coconut leaves into coconut brooms!
Visitors can choose to rent a bicycle (bikes are available for rental on-site at RM4 each) or explore the area on foot. The area is very relaxing to explore both on wheels and on foot, with the trees providing the much needed shade and breeze are constant.
There are lots of props dotted throughout the kampung that are perfect for photos! Visitor's favourites are definitely the hanging nests (there are a total of three of these, inspired by burung tempua nests), giant bird's nests which you can sit in for photos, and swings that look just like the ones you can find in Bali!
There are a total of six swings in the area, but the most popular one is definitely the one that faces the beautiful paddy fields.
Don't forget to look for the mini jetty here facing a pretty pond filled with water lilies! The abundance of water lilies all year long provides a great photo opportunity.
There's also a decoy white grand piano where you can sit behind and pretend like you're Beethoven. The nostalgic vibe and laid-back surroundings at Kampung Agong will make you feel as if you're stepping into a Lat comic book.
For camping kaki, the site is also available for rent to camp overnight.
The home-based concept of “Kampung Style” and is the best place for a short getaway from the bustle of the city. You can spend your day enjoying the beauty of mother nature and countryside "Kampung" vibe to experience the best Malaysia has to offer.

Unique and well maintained place. Ample car park. Food and drinks to be purchased in the park. Come early to avoid the crowd and also the heat. An enjoyable experience being here for our family. Recommended ??

It is my first visit after reading positive reviews from previous visitors and friends.
Traffic is good and free, leading us easily to find the location. Spacious parking space, and it costs only RM3.
Entrance fees RM10 for adult and RM5 for kids. 12 years consider as adult !
Good initiative by the owner who transformed this area from coconut and paddy field to tourist attraction.
A peaceful place, full of village atmosphere and allows you to capture beautiful moments with your loved ones.
Surely, childhood memories will be embodied in the memory and cherish beautiful memories.

This is really a great homestay! The surrounding is well maintained and we get to watch the sunset, the moon, planets & stars and the sunrise which we couldn’t if we buy day ticket to the park (9am to 7pm only). Staff were very helpful too. Minor setback - if only they have house with 2 or 3 bedrooms - that would be better for big families.
