Kek Lok Si #1 - The Hike Towards the Temple

One week before Chinese New Year, my housemate from Indonesia Steven decided to pay me a visit in Penang and I played the role of a Tour Guide to take him around. A tour to Kek Lok Si was the first destination.

On the way to Kek Lok Si Temple, I dropped by at my high school and took a picture.
Chung Ling High School gave me countless memories.

Parked below for a flat rate of RM3.00 which is quite expensive.You can opt to park up the hill which cost less but climbing from the bottom is more fun.

One of the famous attraction in Kek Lok Si temple is the hundreds of tortoises. Tourists can purchase a bunch of water spinach(a.k.a. Kangkung) for RM1.00 from the hawkers around the pond to feed them.

(translation:Please do not pee here!)


This is a gigantic rock that has chinese characters carved on it.

More Kek Lok Si to come!
