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.

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.

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

Visit to the Wet Market in Penang

Before I post on my visit on New York City, let me share a post on a visit close by. This is a blog on wet market.

I love to visit markets anywhere I go when I travel; locally or abroad as there is where you get to see the locals mingle and haggle over things, and you can get to see all types of vegetables, fishes, and other sorts food which may be grown, made or caught locally.

Today I am posting on the wet market that I visit every weekend. This is to let my readers see the local activities in a local market in Penang.
