    I loved this place it is like a miniture village on the sea. From the street down at Weld Quay you just walk right onto the village, tiny wooden sreets and the beautifully decorated chinese little wooden houses each with its own garden or yard.

    Village in Chew Jetty / Lim Jetty

    Chew Jetty

    Perhaps this is one of the most unique and old settlement in Penang. Situated near the Penang Port and Esplanade are two village built on the sea.

    These houses are made of wood ( which mainly come from trees in the swamp , for their ability to withstand water erosion ) and stand on some wooden stilts.

    Its inhabitants are usually fisherman , but the number has reduced as younger generation prefer working in the city .

    Its a good place for photography !
