I've always wanted to share a bit more about the small island where I'm from - Penang. For the locals, to remind u how pretty Penang is... and for those of u who've yet to visit... to introduce to u how beautiful Penang is... Just earlier this year, Penang became apart of the World's Heritage! I will go on a heritage tour (by foot) soon.. and share the amazing heritage trails of Penang, with u!
I will start with Pantai Kerachut. A place I've always wanted to go - and finally did. It's about 2 hours of hike from 'the end of the world'. Just to note... I did not photoshop or edit any of these pictures and they are taken with my precious point-n-shoot camera...
Early in the morning at the start of our hike. Because it is apart of Penang's National Park, we need to register before we start...
**The View Along the Way**
the end of the world (aka telok bahang) is home to a lot of fisherman. If u look closely, in the middle of the picture.. is huts created by fisherman to rear fish
proper paved track at the beginning of the track
a short hanging bridge
and the real ordeal begins... the first 15-30 minutes is most challenging especially for ppl like me who stays indoor to do sugar work most of my time :P Lots of staircase to climb
a small stream/waterfall
a fallen tree - yes we need to climb over
and finally - after close to 2 hours, we arrived! We did it!!!
**My First Glimpse of Pantai Kerachut**
I was completely blown away!
Honestly, i never expect to find such an amazing place in Penang
and let me reassure u again... NO EDITs what-so-ever
**The Meromictic Lake**

**About & Around Pantai Kerachut**
this is my favorite
a lot of people come here to fish :)
I'm someone who's always fascinated with the cloud's formation. I was dumb struck for about half hour after reaching while I point-n-shoot non-stop! :P
I'm not very proud of Penang's beaches but.... I'm so proud of Pantai Kerachut.. The water is not crystal clear like what u would see in some islands but it's so much cleaner if u were to compare it with the Batu Ferringhi beaches....
After walking ard for about 2 hrs... we decided to head for home...
and the boat arrives :)
**on the way home**
the turtle rock
what do u think that looks like?
some say alligator, some say snake - i personally thinks it looks more like a snake! :P
**End of the World, Telok Bahang**
rows of fishing boats
old wooden jetty
my best picture of the day - caught-by-luck!
Perfect place for a pre-wedding photo!
Next up on Penang is.... Penang Hill!
