Hop in the back of a trishaw at the port, and you’re ready to be pedalled from one attraction to another. Your three-wheeled transport – also known as a rickshaw – is a common sight around Penang’s capital, George Town, so you’ll blend right in. The first stop on your agenda is the Khoo Kongsi clan temple – a 600-year-old building which Chinese families would use to worship their ancestors. Next, you’ll pay a visit to the grand Pinang Peranakan Mansion. This living museum’s been set up to look exactly as it would have done when it was lived in during the late 19th century, and there are more than a thousand antiques and collectibles on display. After your tour, you’ll jump back in your trishaw for the return journey to port.
The rickshaws hold two people each, the ride will be a bit bumpy.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
