Cleaner and nicer than KL...grabbed a taxi at the cruise terminal and he drove me to the Hard Rock at the north end of the island. Driver did his best to have me stop at some shops (felt like he received a commission or something) but I stayed firm and just did the HRC run. Back in town, very colonial looking, terrific food, priced right...can definitely go back to Penang. Read Less

Loved it, especially because there was no tender and we could walk into town. Took the hop on bus, but had trouble with the map because the stops weren’t always accurately portrayed. Give the botanical gardens a miss.

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

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

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.

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
