Temples & Penang Famous Homes


Photography enthusiasts will enjoy studying beautiful Penang through the lens, as this is easily one of the most photographic cities in Asia. Board your motorcoach and travel to the bustling capital of George Town, which showcases over 200 years of history and culture and offers a wonderful mix of historic sites. Visit the famed Wat Chayamangkalaram, a Siamese temple home to the third largest reclining Buddha in the world. Then, see the elegant Pinang Peranakan Mansion, a showpiece belonging to wealthy Chung Keng Quee (Kapitan) from China. Next, visit another magnificent architectural property, Khoo Kongsi, considered the most picturesque structure in Penang. Your final stop is the century-old Clan Jetties, one of the last standing bastions of the Chinese settlements on the island. These homes are raised on stilts, and the water-villages are accessible by a long walkway. Once the last picture has been taken, a quick drive takes you to port.
