After hotel pickup, your private tour begins at Tua Pek Kong Temple, dedicated to the god of prosperity, who the Chinese believe aids in accumulating wealth. According to the religious legend, Tua Pek Kong arrived in Penang in the mid-1700s, 40 years before Francis Light founded the British settlement at George Town. Admire the temple’s roof, which is decorated with pottery pieces.

Continue to Harmony Street to see Guanyin Temple, one of the oldest temples in Penang, dating back to 1800. Also known as Kuan Yin, the temple is a symbol of pride and compassion. Then head to the Chew Jetty in Penang’s Heritage Village, followed by a stop at Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi, aka Khoo Kongsi for short. Hear about Chinese clan associations in Malaysia and their extensive lineage that can be traced 650 years in the past. You’ll see the defensive congregation of buildings and clanhouses.

Your tour also includes a bit of time to shop for local products before saying goodbye to your private guide.
