Train journey from Kuala Lumpur to Butterworth Station on way to Penang.
Disembarked at Butterworth Station, then took the ferry to the island of Penang. One of the most popular sites is the sprawling grounds and numerous buildings at Temple Kek Lok Si. Walked up the hill under the covered canopy of market stalls and vendors. Chose to walk back down the hill on a side street where we were stalked by an unfortunate hairless, tic-infested dog. Funny how the sad critter remains more memorable than the neighborhood surrounds.
This was our base location while on the island of Penang.
Our hotel was pleasant in all respects; adjusting to the humid climate was easier than the culinary selections! see traveltoon ‘Penang – Just Desserts‘ post
A short bus journey from our hotel at Ferengghi Beach was a large, lush garden brimming with exotic plants, insects, reptiles and of course butterflies.
