Established in 1884, The Penang Botanic Gardens is a public park situated on Jalan Air Terjun (Waterfall Road) in George Town on Penang Island, Malaysia. It is a very popular park for locals doing exercises in the morning and in the evening. The admission is free.
There are a lot of monkeys roaming around in the park. Don’t feed them. They are fully capable of finding food themselves.
In Malaysia, a practice known as “open house” (rumah terbuka) is common during the festivities, especially during Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Deepavali, Chinese New Year, and Christmas. Open house means that all well-wishers are received and that everyone, regardless of background, is invited to attend. Free foods and gifts are prepared by the host.
Masjid Cina Titi Papan is a small mosque in the heart of George Town, Penang. As a mosque that many ethnic Chinese Muslims attend, Masjid Cina Titi Papan hosts a open house event every Chinese New Year.
