DescriptionThrough this fascinating audio tour you will see the how this once British colonized city evolved to its present day mecca of culture and multiculturalism. While moving forward with time, Penang has also retained some of the old historic charm with its beautiful colonial buildings and elaborate Chinese and Indian temples, each having its own unique hand carved characteristics. You will meander through the narrow streets to visit some of the most historical and intricate temples in the world. For a different view of the city, wander through Little India where you have the opportunity to try delicious Indian cuisine such as roti canai, thosai, briyani rice and tandoori chicken. The food is affordable and tasty, and you can also experience tasting food on a banana leaf with your hands and no utensils if you wish. There is also a unique chance to visit The Clan Jetties, which are a collection of water villages at Weld Quay where the Indian community built many elaborate temples such as the Mahamariamman Temple. While the Muslim influence can be seen at the Kapitan Keling Mosque, the Acheh Mosque, and the Penang Islamic Museum. The Clan Jetties form part of the Penang Heritage Trail. It is considered as one of the last bastions of old Chinese settlements on the island, and this waterfront society is home to houses on stilts of various Chinese clans. Each of these water villages are over a century old, and are named after a Chinese clan (with the Chew Jetty being most tourist-friendly). This guided audio tour will help you discover that Penang is indeed the Pearl of the Orient in Malaysia.
