The first wave of the 2020 New Year trip ~ Penang, Malaysia.
Strolling through the streets and lanes of Penang, there are simply too many guild halls here. This Chaozhou guild hall is just opposite the Mariamman Indian Temple. The whole guild hall is not big. It is an ancestral hall with Chaozhou characteristics. I am here to prepare for the New Year's party. The Chinese here are very enthusiastic, very traditional and very human.
Chaozhou Guild Hall occasionally passes by. I didn’t expect that there are descendants of Chaozhou people here. A hall was specially built to show the development process of the Chaozhou ancestors who came here and then took root, retaining the buildings with Chinese architectural characteristics.
In Penang, there are very, very many Chinese. It is these hard-working and capable Chinese groups that make Penang's development fast. Most Chinese who came to Malaysia earlier are from Chaozhou, so Chaozhou is found in many places here. Of the clubhouse.
Hanjiang, the river that runs through nine counties of Chaoshan, is the temple of all Chaozhou people. It was later listed as a UNESCO cultural heritage. And there are scholarships for Chaoshan children, many of whom have completed their colleges.
It is a traditional ancestral temple in the south, and now there is an inn. Opposite the Juliet Hotel, it is a good homestay option.
An ancestral hall building, diagonally opposite is also an ancestral hall. There is a homestay inside, which is very distinctive. But I prefer Juliet on the opposite side.
An ancestral hall building with an inn inside. But I still like the Juliet Hotel opposite.
