Easy to walk off the ship to walk around Georgetown, a nice Asian town, with interesting sights such as churches, temples etc. Nice green gardens, and a walk along the waterfront made for anenjoyable couple of hours.

Grab a cab, get them to show you a few places around, head up Penang hill for the views and then make sure you ask them to take you for the best Cha Koey Teow...it is the best prawn + noodles you will ever have!

We arranged a private tour with a Tours By Local guide. Poh was excellent. We elected to do the historical tour, and she was very organized, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. There are some very interesting places to see in Georgetown. The Clan houses, the Peranakan museum, the temples, and the clan jetties were very memorable. Over several trips we have found that Tours By Local guides are great for private tours, and in most cases they are pretty reasonable in price. Read Less

A very interesting place. We saw where Anna and the King was filmed and the pier and the local street art they are famous for.

My least favourite port but it could be because it was extremely hot and humid. We visited the Peranakan Mansion on our own. The city comes alive after dark.. had some amazing hawker food here.

So. Much. Hassling when you leave the port area. Kinda ruined it for us. Also their “hop on hop off” bus is nonexistent.

Our hop on-hop off - got terribly snarled up in traffic jams but we enjoyed the old town, shops, museums and mansions very much.
