DescriptionYour tour begins with pickup from your hotel at Georgetown on time for a 10am departure. Meet and greet your friendly driver at the hotel lobby and proceed for your tour. Your driver will pick you up from your respective hotel then you will head out to visit Wat Chayamangkalaram Temple, Dhammikarama Burmese Temple, and the streets of George Town - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then you will also visit Penang Hill where you will ride a funicular train to its peak at 833m above sea level to enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of George Town and mainland, Butterworth. Colonial bungalows can be found around this hill due to the British preferring to stay in a cooler climate compared to the hot and humid environment in the city. After that, you will visit Kek Lok Si Temple. Built in 1891 as a small shrine, it has since expanded to become one of the most majestic and largest temples in South-East Asia. Since its founding in 1930, the “Pagoda of Ten Thousand Buddhas” is considered one of Penang’s most beautiful architectural wonders as it is able to incorporate 3 cultures into one structure – with its Chinese octagonal base, Thai middle tier, and Burmese Crown. A 30.2m Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) bronze statue was erected in 2002 on the highest point of the temple. It can be reached via an Inclined lift at the middle. On the way, you will stop for some free sampling of Penang’s famous White Coffee/Tea at Coffee Tree.
