Full description
Your tour begins with pickup from your hotel at Georgetown on time. 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. 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.

Der Fahrer/Guide war pünktlich im Hotel, vorher hatte es, anders als bei anderen Touren, allerdings keine Kontaktaufnahme gegeben. Obwohl das 11. Mal auf Penang, so haben wir doch eine ganze Reihe neuer Eindrücke gewonnen. Kek Lok Si war eher nervig, man rennt durch zu viele Souvenirläden, die Fahrt durch die Altstadt mit den vielen Kolonialbauten war sehr schön. Wir hatten immer ausreichend Zeit für Besichtigungen, es würde auch Viel erklärt.
