Tourist Spot Jetty, Penang

First time going into the Chew's Jetty... I didn't know that this is now a tourist spot until my friends told me.... kind of fascinating... some even went there to take wedding pictures!  Wahhh...true or not.. it was so hot actually... oh, remember to wear a hat or take an umbrella when you have park your car... it was scorching hot on that day!
Ok, let's start walking on the plankway.... 
 
there are houses along the plankway leading to the jetty.... 
souvenirs were sold along the way.... 
Good to help the local people there... 
It is an interesting walk if you have never been there before...
Soon the end of the jetty is seen.... 
the last wooden house....
A faded painting on the wooden house...
I guess the paint has come off due to the sun and rain...
Fishermen's boat....
More are seen here.....
Well, this is about it... 
It is not a lover's jetty or bridge...
But it is certainly a nice place to visit if you drop by to Penang... :)

  1. Nice scenery from the jetty. That house floating on the water looks cool. Looks like a kampung fishing village.

  20. It was intentionally removed as the residents were afraid that the wooden bridge would not stand the weight of tourist.
