If your trip to George Town is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is looking a bit empty, let us give you a helping hand.
Give that rental car a breather and exercise those legs. Not far from this neighborhood's center, Penang Islamic Museum is worth a visit. More adventure is waiting for you at Dr Sun Yat Sen’s Penang Base and Acheen Street Mosque, which are also nearby.
Journey out of George Town and explore something new. Chinatown is popular with visitors, so swing by and discover some of its best sights. It's only 0.2 miles away, so you hardly have an excuse to skip it!
If you adore the smell of fresh sea air and the sight of seabirds gliding over the ocean, jump in the car and spend an afternoon ambling along the shore at Teluk Bahang Beach. You'll find this lovely stretch of coastline 9 miles from George Town.
George Town is a little way out of the center of Butterworth, so there's a high chance you'll be doing a bit of driving. If you intend to use George Town as a starting point to discover the city and its surrounds, rent a smaller set of wheels. Nothing beats a compact for maneuvering into those crowded parking spots. Alternatively, if you're heading away from the bright lights and traffic, reserve something with a stronger engine and more legroom. Not many people regret spending that little bit extra on a premium or a full-size car.
First of all, there's a great range of both economy and high-end vehicles to rent in George Town. What you go with will depend on how much you want to spend and what you plan to do. Prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about mod cons and comfort. If you're splurging, why not book an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a flashy mid-sized sedan? Alternatively, if you just need a car to whiz around town in at the cheapest price possible, we can help you out with an economy vehicle (or something else that won't blow your budget).
