“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Like nothing you will see in Europe, these houses are suspended above the water and there are many people living here. The locals didn't mind us walking around at all and left us to our own devices to take photos etc. Make sure you wear a hat and take water as there is little shade here and the walk back to central town is a long one when it's 40+ !

“Wonderful spot to see a slice of old Penang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Here's a one off chance to get a glimpse into what the old way of life must have been like in George Town.
Here's a photo essay from the Chew Clan Jetty on our blog.

“Historical & Peculiar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The clan jetties is a fisherman's housing area close to the ferry terminal at the beach side.It is an interesting place to see how in older times the fishermen used to live in their boat houses (& some are still living there).It is much more interesting than many other touristic places highly advertised in the brochures.Its a kind of living heritage of Penang which might diminish due to lack of awareness!
