  • Initially a wooden floating Chinese temple dedicated to God of Mercy in year 1972, the temple was completely rebuilt with concrete structure in November 2012. Peaceful and scenic. It is also a photography spot easily be missed due to inaccessibility by motor vehicles. One needs to walk through old residential area at Weld Quay in order to access it. If you are lost, locals are friendly enough to show you the way. The lighting in the evening is astonishing.
  • Beautiful temple, place of worship located at Weld Quay. Suggest to visit the temple during evening to enjoy its lighting as well.
  • Nice sea breeze, clean & serenity temple. Very interesting temple with hidden access. Managed by a group of extremely friendly local.
  • A beautiful temple set at the very end of one of the clan jetties. It's tricky to find but keep looking because it's worth it. There's a great view and a sea breeze at this lovely temple. Make sure you go upstairs for an even better view.
  • Nice scenery

The coastal areas offer more expensive resort-style luxury rooms with sea views, while away from the beaten track, you'll find backpacker hostels providing good options for those wanting to keep on the move.
