Visit the Kek Lok Si Temple or Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas – infinitely intriguing from the start. It is one of the largest Chinese temples in Malaysia and the largest Buddhist temple in South East Asia. Among the other features is the Tortoises’ Pond of longevity where devotees release the creatures to earn blessings in life and Seven Tier Pagoda that incorporates Chinese, Thai & Burmese architecture. A beautiful bronze statue of the Goddess of Mercy overlooks the temple.
Next, take the funicular train up to Penang Hill, where the oldest British hill station in the region was established. A cool hill retreat from the tropical heat, it provides a panoramic view of George Town and mainland Malaysia (on a clear day).
