Do & See
The city’s landmarks range from the colonial-era Fort Cornwallis and the 60-foot Clock Tower on the waterfront Esplanade to the mighty Komtar Tower, and Georgetown has a fabulous choice of places to eat drink and shop. Batu Feringgi, northwest of Georgetown, was Malaysia’s first international resort area. With fine sand, accommodation to suit all budgets, nightlife, watersports and good shopping, it remains one of the region’s most popular and best-equipped beach destinations. Penang Bridge, the island’s road link to the mainland, was completed in 1988. Stretching 13.5 km (8.5 miles) from Gelugor on Penang to Seberang Prai, it is the longest bridge in South East Asia and is currently claimed to be the third longest bridge in the world.
