All reviews clan jetties on stilts big bowl wooden planks souvenir shops fishing village worth a visit sea view their lives noodles food stalls small temple chinese new year interesting place nice view street art homes
It’s a short bridge where you could find souvenir shops and some food. The night sea view at the end of the bridge is quite relaxing where you could see Penang bridge and city lights. No harm to pay a visit as it won’t take...More
As we stayed nearby at Beach street, we walked to visit the Lee jetty which appeared to be very well maintained and totally residential. At the end of jetty, we had very good view of the sea and other clan jetties which provide good photo...More
Not really sure I understand the appeal of the jetties, basically a lot of mini houses on stilts in the water that stretch out, and they pretty much all operate as souvenir shops. Was part of my tour so just walked out to take a...More
another historical site to visit. rich in the founding story of Penang and how the locals descended from China. encroaching tourism with local dwellers life has preserved this site. there is a play that it's running which depicts the history in a storytelling manner, making...More
While traveling in Georgetown, Penang our tour leader suggested that we visit this location. Really enjoyed seeing the Chinese old settlements. A little touristy with things for sale but liked it anyway.
A lot of people walk through the chew jetty . However in my opinion the sea view and temple at the end is the highlight. All the street vendors arent really selling traditional penang items, more like makeshift to extract the most from tourists.

i suggest u to go chew jetty at the afternoon because it very hot at the jetty. the business hour is 10 am - 9 pm. there is only one jetty near the big bowl noodle. don't forget to bring hat because it is hot.
Penang 3D2N with 20 months old toddler (9 Replies)
Hi, I will be travelling to Penang on 23-25 Oct together with my husband and 20 months toddler. We will be staying at Maritime Waterfront Hotel. Any advice/suggestions for the following? 1. Suggested itinerary suitable for toddlers (few places in mind include Penang Hill, Chew Jetty & checking out the street art) 2. Suitable food places for toddlers (e.g. with high chair) 3. Recommendations for hire of taxi/private driver for a day trip Thank you in advance.

Are you aware of where your hotel is? It's on Karpal Singh Drive which is not usually where tourists go so you're going to have problems getting around. Suggest you download the Grab app so you can call taxis. I don't think a 20 month old will care very much where you take him, but I wouldn't have thought the Clan Jetties to be the best place unless you can carry him. Otherwise there's a danger of getting his foot stuck between planks or even falling off into the water. There is a big food...More

I used the HOHO when I was in Penang but this I wouldn’t use if it was free. Don’t like the set times, being told where I can go and can’t think of anything worse than following the flag bearer. Maybe they were losing money on it so have decided to try something different.
