If you run out of land, just start building over the water. Chinese clan groups embraced that idea and have established their own jetty communities in George Town. Time to take a long walk on an endless pier.
The jetty designation is a loose description. More like a hydra platform, ever expanding to accommodate whoever wants to add a house.
Watery back porch.
Still room for a traditional Buddhist temple. How do they build the piers? A bit low tech: remove bottoms of large plastic paint buckets, stack them, pour concrete and, viola, pier.
Humble house interior.
Plenty of tourists wandering to the end of the pier, looking for a nice view and a photograph.
