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

Penang is a shoppers paradise, lots of shopping centres, little india to see walking in Historic town, very pretty indeed. Shoes and sandals are so cheap, buy plenty of them.

Booked via local taxi company which is placed in the terminal. You receive a proper receipt and special phone number in case you may questions on the driver's behaviour (which acts like a quality guarantee). Great service, highly recommendable as we had a Malay driver with Chinese descent and we received an excellent historical tour and eventually a little beach treat. 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
