Penang is famous for attractive historic places and unique heritage sites. One of the many worth visiting places in UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town is the Clan Jetties.

Clan Jetties consist of 7 jetties, each named after their surnames: Ong, Lim, Chew, Tan, Lee, Yeoh & a mixed one.

Each jetty is a whole settlement of wooden houses 🏠 built on silts connected with a long wooden walkway for immigrants with the same surname who migrated from China since the 19th century. This unique settlement above the sea shore stands out as a truly unique living heritage in Penang.

Chew Jetty and Tan Jetty are the most famous jetties to tourists and photographers πŸ“· among all the clan jetties at Weld Quay.

Armenian Street is arguably one of the most popular streets within George Town's UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's just a short street of about 350 meters but it has rich cultural offerings and street art 🎨.
.
Armenia Street was originally named as Malay Lane after a Malay settlement in the earlier days. By 1808, the street was renamed as Armenian Street due to the influx of Armenian traders who resided along the street. The name of the street remains until today even though most of the Armenians had already left Penang in 1930s.

This street is full of history of Penang. Over here, you can find many historic buildings from the earlier days of Malay and Chinese settlements to today's modern street art. Some of the famous places of interest along the street are Penang Islamic Museum, Sun Yat-sen Museum, Khoo Kongsi, Cheah Kongsi and "Children on Bicycle" Mural.

On July 7, 2008, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) designated George Town a World Heritage status πŸ—ΊοΈ. In recognition of this honourable designation, Penang state government declared July 7 as George Town World Heritage Day πŸ‘ so we will celebrate this special day on this coming Friday.

In this few weeks, we will share some famous places in George Town under #PenangPlaces so stay tuned. Today we want to feature Khoo Kongsi.

Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi, or better known as Khoo Kongsi, is one of the most distinctive Chinese clan associations in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ, or perhaps South East Asia. It is a large Chinese clanhouse 🏯 with intricate carvings and richly ornamented architecture built by Leong San Tong clan, who migrated from Sin Kang clan village in Hokkien province, China as early as the 17th century.

Khoo Kongsi used to be the center of important social activities and functions for all the clansmen back in those days. Now it has become a popular attraction for tourists interested in local culture.

We know some of you are still enjoying your long holiday! πŸ˜€ So today we are featuring a clean and less crowded beach in Penang that you can visit during public holidays.

Monkey Beach is located in Penang National Park at Teluk Bahang, so you'll need to go through a little jungle trekking of about 1 hour to reach this clean beach πŸ–οΈ with soft white sand. You can also charter a boat from the entrance of National Park, which is about RM50 per pax (price may vary).

The Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque (Masjid Terapung Tanjung Bungah) is an iconic landmark in Tanjung Bungah area. The mosque was officially opened in 2007 and it's the first mosque built on top of the sea in Malaysia.

Even though it's called Floating Mosque, the mosque is not actually floating but rather standing on concrete pilings above the sea.

If you are a Muslim, you can pay a visit any time of the day and have a special praying experience there. The scenery is pretty awesome in the evening too.
