Chew Jetty is just located few minutes walk from the main jetty. People which stay there have same sur name which is.obviously CHEW. Total have 75 houses which build on top of the sea. Along the houses there's art and crafts item, local food and Penang Island printed gifts been sold. As for photography session... well it depends individually.

A nice area to visit. There's a few restaurants, a temple and a market. The market is a mix of modern shops (souvenirs) and outside stalls.

There are a number of jetties along the shore, all different. Ranging from the heavily commercialised to much quieter. They are great for photographers with many areas to explore.

This is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Penang which is full of history pertaining to migrants from China in 19th centuries who settled down at the waterfront of George Town. The houses and pavements are all made of wood and today it is one of the interesting tourist spots in Penang, despite many residents are still staying there. Chew Jetty is one of the seven settlements at Penang waterfront where Tan Jetty is within 5 minutes walk from Chew Jetty. Chew is a Chinese surname where they come from same ancestors in the past in China. Interesting architecture in the olden days where we can imagine the lifestyle of the migrants in the past living in these clans settlements. We could feel the sea breeze as we walk through the pavement closer to the seafront. A must go for someone who love history and culture.
