About Travel to Penang
Butterworth Railway Station is the connection point between the Malay railway network and commuter ferry services to Penang Island. Pangkalan Sultan Abdul Halim Ferry Terminal, where car ferry services to Penang Island depart from, is a short walk from Butteworth Railway Station inside Penang Sentral Bus Station. These ferry services depart from the mianland every day from 05:20 to 00:10 and take 15 minutes to 20 minutes to reach Penang Island. The arrival point for car ferry services from Butterworth is Pangkalan Raja Tun Uda Ferry Terminal on Pengkalan Weld in the centre of George Town. From there its walking distance to popular parts of the city such as Chulia Street and Beach Street.
There lots of things to see and do in George Town both in the historic city centre as well in the hills on the edge of the city. The city centre area has lots of old buidings dating back to the time the island was part of the British Empire. George Town’s Esplanade features a number of European style buildings of note, and is not far from St. George’s Church, which is the oldest purpose built Anglican church in South East Asia. One of the other points of interest in the city centre are the Chinese stlye temples, such as Penang’s Hainan Temple, and the Chinese clan houses, which have been beautifully preserved and offer an insight into life in the 19th Century for the Chinese immigrant community on the island during the 19th Century.
We also recommend taking the funicular railway up to Penang Hill. Penang Hill is the collective term for a cluster of hills to the west of George Townn city centre. These hills were used by the British colonialists as places to escape from the heat of the city. There are a number of old European style buidings on the top of these hills, as well as more modern buildings, some of which house cafes and restaurants. Visitors with a larger budget can also dine in style at David Brown’s Restaurant & Tea Terrace.
