Kek Lok Si Temple – the best temple in South East Asia!

Kek Lok Si Temple is the most beautiful temple we saw in South East Asia.
It’s absolutely breathtaking!

The temple is situated on the hill. To get there, you have to reach hundreds of steps. But it’s not difficult, you can do it even if you are not very fit.

What to do there?

Kek Lok Si is huge, so you will be there for at least an hour, walking around and taking awesome pictures.

In order to get to the very top, you may buy a ticket for the fast train.

1. After visiting Kek Lok Si, go to Penang Hill.

These two tourist attractions are very close to each other (about 2km).

You can get there by the same bus #204.

Penang Hill is the last stop and Kek Lok Si is the one before it.

3. Don’t worry about the weather.

It was rainy and foggy when we were visiting Kek Lok Si.
But we didn’t mind. Mountains and temple in the clouds and fog make this place even more romantic and mysterious.

In the middle way to Kek Lok Si, you will see Turtle Temple. For only 1 MYR you can buy food for them.
