The KhooKongsi is an elaborate Chinese clanhouse that is situated in Penang, Malaysia. The KhooKongsi is the best-known clanhouse in all of Penang and features highly ornamented architecture that makes it one of the most unique structures in the country and one of its most popular historic attractions. The Khoo family was a family of affluent traders from South China, and they built the KhooKongsi in 1851 as a place for members of the clan to stay and congregate. Now the KhooKongsi is a major tourist attraction in Penang and often hosts singing performances.

  • Visit Penang during the seventh lunar month, and you can see a performance of the Chinese opera at the KhooKongsi, a unique cultural experience for visitors to Malaysia.
  • Explore the altar room at the KhooKongsi, and you can see the beautiful ancestral tablets that are used to honour the ancient patrons of the Khoo family in Penang.
  • Walk around the exterior of the KhooKongsi to see the highly ornate design details that include sculptures and carvings that represent different gods.

KhooKongsi is not far from the city centre of Penang, so you can get there easily using a combination of public transportation. The best way to get there via public transport is to take the Penang Metro and get off at the ET Real Estate/Jalan Kampung Kolam station. From there, you can either walk the rest of the way to the KhooKongsi or catch a bus that will take you to the front entrance. Visitors should be warned that you have to book tours well in advance and they fill up quickly, especially during holidays.
