Penang Beach Street Sunday Morning Walk

Beach street is located at Georgetown, where towards the end of the road, many banks are located. The Inland Revenue office and Immigration office are also located here. It is a busy busy street in the weekdays, but in the weekend, its quite empty. But not recently.

Thanks to the Occupy Beach Street Project, the place is flooded with people, doing many kinds of activities. 

Beach Street Sunday market is located at the east most tip of Penang!:

View of Georgetown from Prangin Mall Penang

For a whole year I lived in Penang, and I never thought of viewing Georgetown from this angle.

Penang Si Ki Tiang

There are four magnificent pillars standing beside the sea in Penang, some would call them Si (four) Ki Tiang (pillar). Just like a normal place for sight seeing and relaxing. Apparently, this place has attracted a lot of people lately because the Ubah bird was places here.

The four pillars


And there we have the trash carrying ships placed.

Rather looked like blue popcorn up close

The revolutionary Ubah bird, which is big, but looked small. With the Penang Bridge at the back.

Rather a nice place for strolling, jogging, cycling, or just to spend the time relaxing beside the sea.

Map to that place:

*PPO In a Chamber

Catch blooming flowers of Sweden while you take a walk in a beautiful Danish park; watch the lightning in Japan and listen to the Estonian sound in the air as you sing a Filipino tune in the style of Jazz; and when all these are over, hum a Spanish lullaby before you go to bed. Come widen your horizon with us as we reach out and embrace the world like it is in our own backyard – as though it is a stage built around us.

Voices of Penang Philharmonic, through the lens of choral music, will take you on a whirlwind tour around the world, all made possible by the human voice. No long-haul flights, no language barrier, no culture shock, no limits… just the beauty of choral music.

Prepared by,
Chong Wai Lun

Cheng Kon Sze (清觀寺) Temple of 1002 Steps in Penang

Oneof the hiking spot in Penang is the 1002 steps of Cheng Kon Sze. Going up would take 30-45 minutes with fast pace, one hours and a half with slow pace.

The hike starting point can be reached from United Hokkien Cemetery in Paya Terubong. Hikers actually have to enter the cemetery and drive further on to reach the place.

The starting point of hiking is inside, where you would need to drive through the cemetery.
