To the hills and beach – Penang

image

Today in Penang,  we met up with the friends who we are taking the trip with.  Now they had already been here a few years and are staying at a place far away from us.  We finally found a place that they hadn’t been to which was a Chinese Buddhist temple, Kek Lok Si,  perched up on a hilside. The complex is pretty huge with lots of prayer rooms and the view from the top of the pagoda is spectacular too.

We then ventured further uphill with a roller-coaster ride on a funicular to Penang Hill, there we found a peaceful spot for some tea and scones with amazing views of the island.

We ended our day with a sunset stroll on the beach.
