A recent addition to the Tanjung Tokong Tua Pek Kong temple area is a small park that features colorful LED lighted flowers. This small park near the seaside is built about a very small hill behind the temple, with stairs going around it.

The ‘Round Island’ route connects the northern and western areas of Penang Island, from Teluk Bahang to the Balik Pulau province. This scenic route passes via the hill slopes of the northwestern part of the island, and along the journey, one will also pass by fruits farms, orchards and many durian trees (especially when it is durian season).

The old entrance to the huge Hokkien Cemetery in Mount Erskine, Penang. This cemetery, managed by the United Hokkien Cemeteries (UHC), is one of the several main and old Chinese cemeteries in Penang, covering almost the entire hilly area in Mount Erskine. The area where the cemetery is located was once considered to be auspicious for the Chinese due to its strategic location that faces the city of George Town and the sea.
During the Qing Ming festival (usually around this time), this cemetery will be crowded with Chinese folks visiting, cleaning and praying at the graves of their ancestors and departed family members.
