About Penang (Pulau Pinang), Malaysia

The swirl of Batik in eastern bazaars, the cascade of waterfalls in the Botanical Gardens, jungle-clad hills ringed by golden beaches, these are the images you will take from Penang. This lovely resort island and its bustling capital of Georgetown are the picture of Malaysian diversity. Visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and Kek Lok Si, one of the most beautiful temples in Southeast Asia. See the ornate Khoo Kongsi, and old Chinese clan house; and an 18th century British fortress. Enjoy the Chinese embroidery and Malay daggers in the Penang Museum, or marvel at the Penang Bridge (third longest in the world).

nothing at the port but a taxi will take you shopping but not very exciting and certainly not the cheapest in Asia

Did not do an excursion - walked out to have a look. Taxi drivers everywhere wanting to take you around the island. Good chance to take some photos of the boat from the Port!

Our tour did not take us to the best places in Penang. To a fish market and then to Little India!! Okay but next time a visit to the coast would be good!

You get right off at the port here, great, I didnt do a tour, but did my own thing, went shopping,, they have a hop on hop off bus, (cat) like in Perth Central Area Transit, but the locals only know it as the free bus. Did a lot of shopping here, but I only did the local Georgetown streets, Penang Rd markets.

Excellent port could walk from cruise port in and around city, but make sure it’s not a public holiday or religious festival as it is extremely difficult to get taxis back to ship in the evenings as they all go on holiday too.
