Tour de Penang

Last weekend some of our new friends took us on a tour of the Penang island. We started with a lite lunch in Batu Ferringhi – the resort area of the island north of where our condo is located.

We concluded the tour with a visit to the Chew Jetty. It is a jetty where the Chew family and their decedents have built their homes out over the water.
