Penang pretty in Pink! Another nice view of Penang, by the Tabebuia Rosea, Pink Tecoma, Rosy Trumpet Tree or what Penang citizens call it Penang Sakura will be in full bloom again throughout the month of March, and April. It turns the landscape, as well as streets and pavements into a beautiful and colourful sight. These ‘Malaysian sakura trees’ are actually Tecoma Trees (Tabebuia rosea) or pokok kertas tisu (Bahasa Melayu for ‘tissue paper tree’).
Now you can see the Sakura tree everywhere in Penang or Butterworth, it makes Penang like Japan! Love it! If you’re lucky, you’ll find yourself encountering a sight for sore eyes the moment you step out of your house!
Location: Penang Bayan Baru and Seberang Jaya area.
