Here is a place where you can experience one of the most traditional living in the world. Silence sea library in the jetty clan houses area where floating houses in the shore built by chinese fishermen families. Still you won’t be able to get hotel facilities, but host dear Doris may provide anything you wish by sincerity.

Doris picked me up upon my arrival. She was very friendly and showed me my room which was clean and tidy. Stayed there for 2 nights and I must say having a beer with the sea breeze is very enjoyable. Waking up to the sunrise is another MUST DO thing when visiting this beautiful place. =) will definitely visit this place again.

Stayed here for 3 days/nights and this place is on the water. Clean and relaxing. Easy to get to anywhere from here. Lots to see in and around this area. Clean rooms and very well priced all with a/c. Actually when i meet Doris she has a web on airbnb and booking.com so went there checked it out. Gave deposit and done. Easy All rooms have aircon main area has tea coffee facilities. Very quiet as the name suggests. 8 rooms but make sure you contact Doris as she will do her best to accommodate your stay. Thank you to Doris who has made my stay so worth it. "Mou chin mou lan"    Cantonese

What made our stay here was Doris. She waited to greet us and showed us all around her home. The room itself is perfect for backpackers, good air con, fast wifi. It's simple but comfortable. Staying on the jetty was a bit of an experience really, the difference when the tide came in and it was intriguing. Doris made our visit though. She spoke good English, told us about the jettys, the local area, good places to eat and even sent us to her and her husbands shop for some delicious corn and a beer. We were made so welcome, so much so we added another night to our stay which was done with ease. Really would recommend to backpackers!

We stayed here for a week and it was an interesting time... This are very basic little room on a traditional Jetty in Georgetown. The sea goes out and the jetty smell can be a big strong but they are trying to get the council to deal with that... Nancy the lady In Charge was lovely, just not very knowledgeable about much to do lol... We had a good time as it was Chinese New Year and the jetty was right in the middle of the action ....
