Sight-seeing and Epicurean Tour in Peninsular Malaysia- Sitiawan

In this continuous blog post after Ipoh Cuisines, we had our sight-seeing tour at the latest famous Tua Pek Gong located at Kampung Pasir Panjang Laut, Sitiawan. The statues built to a grand scale (more than 30 feets) facing the sea and I guessed it was related to the Feng Shui that Chinese used to believe in. Apart from that, Tua Pek Gong temple is also famous of its up-kept landscaped garden with rocks, artificial mountains, fish ponds, fountains, statues and etcetera.

The long journey taken from Ipoh to Sitiawan had us rushing towards the washroom once we arrived the temple. Oh well, the painting on the wall itself which indicated genders had made us laughed loudly. The temple is divided to many different segments:
  • Temple for prayers
  • Food stalls and souvenirs shop
  • A big landscapes with many humongous statues facing the sea and lots more.
  • Monkey Garden which serves the main purpose of seeing monkeys and mangrove farm.
  • Nicely maintained garden with rocks, artificial mountains, fountains, fish ponds and lots of zodiac statues which are suitable for photography session.

Surrounded by mangroves

The nice foods we had in Sitiawan: Cheong Cia Gong Pian @ 曾家福州光饼 and seafood.
