About this activity
Meet a driver at your hotel in the George Town area for 9am or 2pm departure, then travel to the first stop of the day, the Clan Jetties on George Town's waterfront. You'll see traditional stilt houses built out over the water, and learn about the living heritage of the Chew Clan.
Visit the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, the former house of a Chinese Captain, and see a remarkable collection of memorabilia and artifacts. Continue to Khoo Kongsi, one of the grandest temples, or clan houses, of the Khoo family, with fascinating history and rituals.
Next, head to Pulau Tikus to visit Reclining Buddha Temple, or Wat Chaiyamangkalaram, and the Burmese Temple, or Dharmikarama Temple. You'll see the world's 3rd-longest reclining Buddha statue, then learn the differences between Chinese and Siamese dragons. There's also a grand standing Buddha here, and the "Guardian of the World"—count how many animal parts make up this guardian. 
After 4 hours of exploring, this tour concludes with return transfer to your hotel.

Guide from George town, Chong was excellent. He explained to us all the history about the points of interest we visited and took us to a real local restaurant that only offer genuine local food and drink like Laksa, gwai due and jin do drink. Before going back to the ship, he entertained our request taking us to a corner store to try the best fruit in Malaysia, Durian. I have no doubt in recommending this half day city tour to folks browsing for unforgettable memories in George Town
