Penang: Bus Tours
Pearl of the Orient
For a bus tour of Penang, try the free shuttle bus in George Town, which winds its way through the colonial centre. It runs between the jetty and the KOMTAR bus terminal and is a great way to get a quick overview of the town since you can get on and off at various stops. A map of the route can be found in the Penang Tourist Newspaper. The air conditioned buses go near all the major attractions and shopping areas in the historic downtown area and run every 12 minutes.
