What You Can Expect

Meet a driver at your hotel in the George Town area for 9am or 2pm departure, then travel to Kek Lok Si Temple with a personal driver/guide. Upon arrival at the temple, which stands on the hilltop of Air Itam, continue on foot up a gradual set of stairs and walkways that are sheltered by a labyrinth of souvenir shops.

After passing the temple's turtle pond, you'll be at Kek Lok Si Temple itself, where you'll see the 120 foot (36.5 meter) bronze statue of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. From there, take the road to the pagoda, which is officially known as Bon Po Thar. The base of the pagoda was built in a Chinese style, the center part is Thai, and top part is Burmese, for a truly unique structure that reflects Buddhism's broad base in Southeast Asia. 

Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and cool breezes before returning to the base of the hill. If time permits, pause at a nearby street food stall to sample Penang laksa noodles, sister’s curry mee, or curry noodles, rojak salad, or stir-fried char koay teow (own expense).
