Refreshing Penang Trip

Approximately 5-hour-journey from KL, we finally reached our destination – Penang and straight away heading to our hotel, Berjaya Penang Resort

Our hotel room at 27th floor. Despite the environment around the hotel was like a residential area and unattractive, the interior was kinda cozy. 

First meal in Penang. Famous Char Kuay Teow with 3 big fresh prawns costs RM7 (Waited for 45min for this pricey CKT but it's quite delicious though). This stall is located in front of Heng Huat Cafe, Lorong Selamat. 

Got a few bottles of sesame oil from Ghee Heong. Love the adorable babies which standing around the house of Ghee Heong. The price of sesame oils are slightly cheaper than selling in KL.

We got up to Kek Lok Si temple and visited the newly built Guan Yin statue by a 2-Minutes-cable car-ride (RM4 for return ticket). You may opt to drive up to the hill and pay RM2 for car park,too. 

Colorful wishing tree near the Guan Yin statue. All you need to do is to grab a wishing ribbon by donating RM1 and write down your wishes and name then hang it on the tree :)

Here comes to the end of the refreshing 3D2N trip to Penang.
