About Travel to Penang
The arrival station for bus services from Lumut, Penang Sentral, is connected to the terminal for car ferry services to George Town on Penang Island. The walkway to the ferry terminal is on the 2nd level of the bus terminal. By car ferry the journey to Penang Island costs 1.2 MYR for adult foot passengers and the crossing takes around 20 minutes. There is a toilet and a shop on the ferry and a limited amount of seating space. The car ferry from Butterworth arrives at a pier on the sea front front in the centre of the George Town and from there it’s a walk of around 10 to 15 minutes to popular areas such as Chulia Street and Armenia Street.
The historic quarter of George Town has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status and there are plenty of places to visit, as well as great hotels, bars, restaurants and food markets. Penang has a relaxed and cosmopolitan atmosphere and drinking alcohol in George Town is more social acceptable than in many other parts of Malaysia. The historic parts of George Town is fairly compact and you can easily walk between most of the major attractions such as Chew Jetty, the Cheah Kongsi clan house and Thean Hou Kong Temple. Also notable are the city’s many wall murals, the most famous of which were created by well known artist Ernest Zacharevic. For visitors who would prefer not to walk around the town then hiring a cycle powered trishaw to take you the main sights is a good option.
