Got on a hop on hop off bus we were going to get off a couple of stops before the port and see some more on the way back but unfortunately the heavens opened so we went back to the ship.

In Penang we just walked off the ship, dodged past the hundreds of taxi drivers clamoring to take us for "Island tour" " Taxi tour" and used downloaded google maps to walk down Beach St (or Lebuh Pantai) to Little India ( about 15 minute walk). Fascinating place to stroll around , then we made our way to Armenian St where a lot of the street art is located - very interesting. We walked along Armenian st towards the water to the Clan Jetties and explored Chew Jetty at the end of Armenian St. The Clan jetties are floating villages where Chinese immigrants lived so they would not have to pay land tax, and continue to live. Then it was getting dark as we docked at 5 pm so we walked back up Pengkalan Weld to the ship. We were able to see the ship lit up as we were walking so it was quite easy to find our way. We got back on board around 8 pm. We felt like we got a good taste of Georgetown, and it cost us nothing , and best thing was we were free to do as we wished. There are a couple of currency exchanges in the port as you exit the ship. Read Less

We took the free local bus to Komtar as our time in Penang was very short due to the long queue getting off the ship as the port officials only opened one gangway for 2000 passengers.

Hop-on, hop-off is nearby, but do your research and just find the nearest circuit transit free bus service (it goes in a loop, so you'll eventually end up back where you started). Plenty to see and do for a days visit even if you just stay in the city. Read Less

Penang was a great port - you walk off the boat and you are right in the action. I enjoyed the port. We self toured and caught a hop on hop off bus. Not sure I would do that again - it was way too slow. I think next time I would pick where I wanted to go and then jump in a taxi, or else do a half day/short ships tour and then do my own thing in the ship area. There was a lot to see and do! Read Less

Nice that the ship docks right in town. Enjoyed a free walking tour with the Tourism office in Georgetown. Lots of time to enjoy the historic city and enjoy some good food for lunch.

Great place to get out and wander. The port is very central and the free bus is an easy way to get around

There were a number of excursions but we had spent a 2 week holiday in Penang a few years ago and only wished to venture into Georgetown and wander through the market and old part of the town which was most interesting

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.
