Penang is full of mesmerizing clan houses, exquisite temples and historical mansions. In this Georgetown Penang city heritage tour, you'll be visiting a few of them, including 2 of the more famous ones.
This clan house also acts as a temple and was built in the 1890s.
While it is more secluded than most clan houses in Penang, Khoo Kongsi is considered the most beautiful kongsi in the island.
A fire in the 1900s sees the kongsi rebuilt, but in less majestic way. Local folks believe the fire is a sign that the deities are jealous of its beauty.
Penang Peranakan Museum
In this tour, you'll also see the antiques and the wealth of the Peranakan ( the overseas Chinese who had assimilated and adopted the Malay culture).
With over 1000 artefacts, this is Penang's finest Chinese museum.
