A local friend of mine brought me there, nice place to see the traditional Malaysian-Chinese houses with traditional house's decoration. In the end of jetty there is a Taoism temple with amazing view towards the bridge. Anyway, worth a visit for your Penang trip !

Definitely a "don't miss" in Georgetown. Allow an hour or more to meander along on the jetty out to the end. Some of the original Chinese Chew Clan homes are still occupied meshed in among the shops and small temples.Great people watching, too.

No entrance fee. There’s probably a fee for the boat ride but don’t know how much.
