Walked into city center of Georgtown. Quite nice. Check out the street art. Went to a beach as well. Not so nice. Skip beach in this stop!

The dock is right next to George Town. No need for paid excursions, you can walk right into the city. Amazing day exploring. The Chew Jetties were great, and the food and shopping was really good value. The pier is so close, we actually returned to the ship for lunch and a swim, then venture out for another few hours. There is a free city bus that stops literally 300m to 500m from the exit of the pier. Read Less

Port was ok- quite close to Penang town and The Central areas. However turnaround time was a little tight which gives us little time to explore Penang in comfort

Hired a taxi for the day from the port. Driver stayed with us all day. Way cheaper than booking a Princess excursion. You can stipulate which tourist areas you want to visit and the amount of time you wish to stay at each stop.

We have been to Penang before. So this time we went to Magic World Penang. The Maze was ok, and the magic show was funny. There were lots of taxis and tours just outside the port

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.
