We just walked around the city, exploring China Town and India Town. Only negative was the "sidewalk" area just off the landing. There and concrete pavers about 2 feet by four feet with about a five inch grass strip between them. I stepped on the grass and my foot went down about four inches and I fell flat on my face. Luckily I landed on my hands and knees and just got a bruised hands and bloody knees. Was able to get up and continue to town. Read Less

Went to tourist office near historic district . Hired a trishaw to pedal us around sites. Went to bank to use ATM to get local currency. Good port for walking around. Not too far to old town area from port.

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.

I've been to Penang before, so we spent the day in Georgetown. If you have never been, take a shore excursion to the main sights. Georgetown has a selection of temples, mosques and historic sights. The best include a beautiful mansion tour and the wall murals scattered around old town. A G&T at the E&O hotel and trying the amazing street food in Little India and Chinatown are a must. The best beach area is a 30 minute drive from Penang. Read Less

Easy walk to the UNESCO world heritage area and you can explore at your own leisure. However, a map/GPS will come in handy. The weather was very hot and humid so I only walked around 2 hours before going back to the ship. The town was very much like a poorer country town of China (not surprising given the heritage at George Town). It was still a great walk around to see how the locals live their lives and the heritage of the area. Read Less
