From Airport to Georgetown - the best method is by bus (not crowded at airport stop).  Taxi is very expensive about RMB55
(suggest take bus to the Georgetown area and take taxi to your hotel about rmb15)

going to airport - if you have a lot of luggage and unable to take bus , we suggest you take taxi or hotel car about rmb30-40 and take about 30 minutes 

Penang Sightseeing

See Georgetown - Walking and by bus (mostly rmb1.40).  Penang Taxi driver do not switch on their meter, most charged rmb15 for short distance.
One of the best ways to sight see is to walk around Georgetown; but wear light clothes, start early in the morning, and put on plenty of sun-block during the daytime.  There is also a FREE shuttle bus in Georgetown areas.

Street Art in Georgetown, Penang
Street Art in Georgetown, Penang
Certain old buildings in Georgetown have been given a new lease of life when funny and fascinating graffiti art is painted beautifully on the walls. The mass of the artwork can be found along Armenian Street, Cannon Street, Acheen Street (Lebuh Archeh) and Ah Quee Street. It is quite a fun place to get lost in.
