Clan Jetties, Penang: 11 reviews and 34 photos


Lim Clan Jetty is one of the well known traditional fishing clan jetties at Weld Quay. It is located the closest to the ferry terminal. At the entrance, there is a sign sponsored by a multinational corporation saying that it has won the best recycling project.

Apparently the jetty started in the mid-19th century of the Lim Clan who came from certain villages in Fujian Province in Southern China.

Tourists can wander freely up to the end of the jetty admiring the fishing houses built on stilts over the sea. As these are private homes, just be respectful if you are snapping photos. At the end of the jetty is a typical fishermen Chinese diety temple for safe homecoming from sea and you can have excellent view of Penang harbor of channel crossing ferries, luxury cruise liners and container ships.
