The Pulau Pinang Guide

If you are visiting Penang for the first time, you should start by visiting the places within Inner George Town, an area inscribed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site on 26 July, 2008. It is located at the northeast tip of the island of Pulau Pinang. The State of Pulau Pinang comprises Penang Island and Province Wellesley (Seberang Perai). There are many towns within Penang Island and Seberang Perai, but most of the tourist attractions are located within George Town, especially Inner George Town, where the majority can be explored by foot. Once you are done with George Town, other places to visit include Ayer Itam and Balik Pulau on the island; Butterworth and Bukit Mertajam on the mainland. If you are coming to Pulau Pinang to bask by the seaside, you will be heading towards the Batu Ferringhi area. Whether you will spend any time in George Town depends on your own inclination.

The easiest, most affordable way to go about in Penang is to take the bus. We provide here the most complete Rapid Penang Bus Routes, which list the entire bus route of Rapid Penang, the main public bus operator in the state. For a faster mode of transport, get a taxi, available at many taxi stands around the island.

Looking for basic necessities, ie a tower perhaps or a soap, we have put together a page listing all the 7-Eleven Stores in Pulau Pinang. That way, if you happen to be in short supply of something in the middle of the night, you can find the nearest 7-Eleven.
