Penang - Circle the Island and temples


A video from our Penang Circle the Island tour.
From the hustle and bustle of Georgetown's waterfront to the countryside of Penang. Circle the island to see some of the most interesting sights. Visit the Thai Buddhist Temple, which houses the 4th largest Reclining Buddha in the world measuring 108 feet long. The Burmese Buddhist Temple sitting across the road spices up the already rich cultural diversity of Penang. Leisurely drive towards the northern tip of the island passing beautiful coves and bays of Batu Ferringhi. Nearby is the Craft Batik workshop, where the intricate and timeless art of printing  the cloth with wax and dyes is demonstrated. Scents of clove and nutmeg  follows as your driver pass through the hills. Stop at a local fruit & spice stall for a firsthand look at the fresh spices and local fruits. See the other facade of Penang, the tranquil Malay Villages, called  Kampung. Return to the ship.
