Our First Visit To Chew Jetty at Weld Quay, Penang.

Once we have loaded our luggage into our car, our next destination is the Chew Jetty. This is the first visit for most of us. Chew Jetty is the largest of the clan jetties. Each jetty is named after a Chinese clan who chose to settle here way before the Japanese occupation. Chew Jetty consists of elevated wooden houses, temples, etc.

Come, follow me for a virtual tour of Chew Jetty.
Walking along this narrow elevated wooden walkway lined with elevated wooden houses on both sides. Most of the houses have been turned into souvenirs shop.

Here is one selling a wide sellection of fans.

Another is selling durian cream puffs, durian cendol, durian pancakes and durian ice creams.
Inside, there is a noodles shop.
The noodles are served in Big Bowls
Menu for the Big Bowl noodles.
Miniature antique vehicles, items, musical instruments as souvenirs.

Most of the houses along the walkway run some kind of business such as selling coconut water, iced water, etc.

I don't know what they are called but they have finely grounded peanuts as filling.
We stopped to buy a packet of  these. 
You can click on this short video to see how they wrapped the peanut filling.
I tried to take a snapshot of a jelly fish swimming near the surface of the water. I hope you can see the outline of the jelly fish. That's the best I can manage with a smartphone camera.
Houses and jetties on stilts.
In the far distance, we can see the Penang Port and the cruise ships.
Rows of elevated wooden houses separated by a narrow waterway.
Narrow elevated wooden walkway leading to more houses.
We ended our visit to Chew Jetty by walking back to the entrance through the same narrow walkway.

Heaven can be entered only through the narrow gate!

The highway to hell is broad,

and its gate is wide enough for all the multitudes who choose its easy way.

But the Gateway to Life is small, and the road is narrow,

and only a few ever find it.

(Matthew 7:13-14, The Living Bible-TLB)

  9. I do see the jellyfish, I bet he can sting!! I love the big beautiful fans!! These peanut filled foods, I have never seen anything like them. And the wrapping looks so skillful. What is the wrapping made of anyway? Looks a bit like mummies!

    1. Yes, they do look like mummies. I think the wrappers are made of some kind of flour.

  15. What an awesome place to visit, Nancy! I have always wanted to come here. It's in my bucket list. I believe the white peanut snack is called 'Dragon's Beard Candy'. That shot you took of the jellyfish is lovely - lucky you to spot it!
