Penang Clan Jetties at Weld Quay – Tan Jetty


In Penang there are six clan communities lining in a row along Weld Quay. They are known as the Clan Jetties which were built up during the 19th century by the Chinese immigrants. All the residents in these clan communities stay in wooden houses perched above the sea by stilts. These historical and unique houses over the water are inter linked by wooden walkways.

The clans at the jetties are Lim, Chew, Tan, Yeoh, Lee and the Mixed Surname Jetty. I visited the Tan jetty also known as Seh Tan Keo (in Hokkien) during one of my food outing.
