Malaysia – Penang; Visit to Kek Lok Si Temple (2)

Hi there…… still walking around the outside of the wet market in Air Hitam, Penang before heading up to the Kek Lok Si Temple. If you missed my earlier part, here you go; Malaysia – Penang; Visit to Kek Lok Si Temple (1)

A matter of fact, there were so much things to look here as it’s one of the local places that tourists or visitors may have missed when they go to Kek Lok Si Temple as they would have gone straight up to the temple.

As you can see, the cars had to slowly go through the road as it’s always filled with people on both sides. Not only people but also lots of motorbikes too.

Fish monger… selling all sorts of prawns.

When we were outside, we stopped by a stall that was selling some fried buns. It smelt so good that I could not resist  buying and giving them a try.

they have 2 types of filling….. one was with ku chai (garlic chives or chinese chives)

the other is with meat stuffing.

Both tasted good. =) For sure, when I go there again, I will definitely buy again and more pieces this time. LOL!!

Anyway.. want to see more? Well… then keep following me then. =)

      • Yes I know what you’re referring to. I was there this past May. I remember there was a cluster of wall art and wire sculptures telling the history of Georgetown, around Lebuh Chulia. I even stayed in a monastery for a few days. Batu Ferringhi has a great night market, check it out if you have time after a visit to the monkey beach. 🙂

        • Wow.. that’s cool. Which monastery did you stay? The Batu Ferringhi night is expensive if you compare to other night market in Penang as it caters more for the tourist. In fact, there are lots of small night market in Malaysia. I have written up on some of the small night market in KL too. =)

          • Sorry for the late response. I stayed at Sitavana Vhara, it overlooks Kek Lot Si temple. It’s not well known.
            I’m not sure how the prices compares between the various night markets but I just found the setting to be beautiful, as it’s right beside the beach.
