Thean Hou Temple Is Worth That Long Steep Uphill Drive

It was an unplanned visit to Thean Hou temple (天后宫) last weekend, a detour after dinner nearby at Seputeh.

Thean Hou temple is located on top of Robson Hill off Jalan Syed Putra. The steep slope uphill drive to the temple brings back fond memories of my teenage years. I reminisced the days when my elder brother’s car was too old for such uphill task (no pun intended).

Magnificent. It’s how I would describe Thean Hou temple.


Work-in-progress for an even more beautiful scenery

Let there be light ….
As it is nearing Chinese New Year, there are sea of red lanterns hung up everywhere, and also more in progress. It was incredibly beautiful, as the temple was covered  with lighted lanterns. I am sure that the scenery will be even more jaw-dropping during Chinese New Year!

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
