How to reach the main attractions by bus Sep 02, 2009
Taking the bus in Malaysia is very cheap and in Penang it was quite convenient (well, if you are not in a hurry). Anyway, there was no way I would drive there so I had no other choice :P

In Georgetown, you can catch all buses at Komtar (the biggest tower of the city) or at the ferry terminal. The tourist information gave me a paper with the places of interest and buses to take to reach them. This really helped me so I am sharing it with you on this review (and i will do my best to make it readable ^^). But it is still better to always ask the driver before going for the ride ;)
