Chinese New Year seems to be the very best time to visit the UNESCO World Heritage and iconic sites of Georgetown as they are all decorated, people are enjoying themselves and the tropical winter weather is perfect.The whole country takes over a week off from school and work and all three major cultures participate some here which gives it a special flavor, although it is is primarily the ethnic Chinese.
Most of these photos were taken at the Chinese New Year Cultural and Heritage Celebration at the UNESCO Heritage Sites in Georgetown, Little Penang Market and we visited the largest Buddhist temple in SouthEast Asia, the stunning Kek Lok Si Temple on Chinese New Year's Eve...probably the ideal time to visit it and it's 10, 000 lanterns. Have you seen our Soultravelers3 Youtube video Channel where we showcased this temple? Please join us on Youtube if you haven't already as we have lots more videos coming soon.
We will be writing more details posts with photos and more about these venues, but here are some photos to enjoy now. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
