The most convenient way up to Penang Hill is by means of the funicular railway in Air Itam. Construction of the railway took place between 1906 to 1923, at a cost of RM1.5 million. The railway was opened to the public on 21 October 1923. The 2,007 m (1 mile 435 yards) journey takes about half an hour and the train may stop at intermediate stations upon request.
