Walk through a Wet Market for a first-hand look at where the local people shop for fresh vegetables, meats and seafood. Next, explore the sprawling Kek Lok Si Temple. Perched at the foothills, the temple which is one of the most splendid temples in the Far East features a tortoise pond, the Hall of Wisdom, a seven-tiered Pagoda and the image of the Goddess of Mercy – Kuan Yin.

Continue the tour to Wat Chayamangkalaram – the temple that houses the 108-foot long figure of the Reclining Buddha, the 4th largest in the world that holds court above the scent of incense and the adjacent Dharmikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple.

Stop for a lunch break (at own expense) at the Gurney Plaza – Penang’s premier shopping and dining destination situated in the heart of Penang Island and overlooking Penang’s famed Gurney Drive.

In the afternoon, drive to Fort Cornwallis, the site where Capt Franics Light first landed and raised the Union Jack for a photo stop.

Drive pass the Queen Victoria Memorial Clock Tower and down ‘street of harmony’ to view the various places of worship – the Anglican St.George’s Church, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy Temple, the Kapitan Keling Mosque and the Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple. End the drive at the majestic and ornate Khoo Clan Ancestral House where you can admire the intricate carvings and woodwork of this heritage building.

Next, explore 'Little India' and see the bustling and colourful enclave with stores selling spices, sarees, brassware and jewellery.

Lastly, visit Chew Jetty – an early Chinese settlement where the people live in wooden houses perched on stilts over water, walk the narrow wooden platforms and immerse in the trading history of the island.

At the end of the tour, you will be returned back to the port plenty of time in advance before your ship's departure.
