  • Thanks a lot trijedvajzoru and Elena from Moscow for the feedback below. Thanks to her I decided to go see the Temple of Georgetown. There was riding on a barge and bus 604 and back just like Elena with a local. At 13.00 bus was not and I even vaguely represented where to look for the bus, so remembering review Helen approached local Grandpa, who was getting into his car, ask for directions. The plan worked and this good man offered to take me there for free. Thanks to him and Elena for the tip! Optional: barge with Georgetown in the Battervord walks free and back to 2 ringgit.

  • Excellent to visit especially during Chinese Lunar month of 9 for celebration of 9 Emperor Festival. Whole stretch of street is filled with vegetarian food vendors. Go there during evening time between 6pm to 7pm to get the magical twilight hour photo. Many levels to visit and photograph. This temple is established since 1970 and ranked among the most beautiful temple dedicated to the 9 Emperor Gods. Verdict - worth to detour.
  • The landmark touristic spot in mainland Butterworth. Tips: there's a CNY night market every night between End Nov-end Jan
