Accessible Georgetown

Please note that Georgetown has rather under developed footpaths. Some streets do not have footpaths at all. Pedestrians should be advised to pay attention to traffic when walking through the city.

Penang’s cruise taxis

The official taxis of Penang are red and blue coloured. Blue coloured taxis are the newer taxis and therefore they cost a bit more. Taxis in Penang do not have a meter, therefore you need to negotiate with the driver before stepping in. Please know the taxi prices are on display in the port area. Expect the following taxi prices: To Kek Lok Si Temple, both ways: 150 RM Around 50 RM per hour per taxi (with a minimum of 3 hours) Between 80 and 120 per hour per van (with a minimum of 3 hours)

Penang’s trishaws

Alternatively to taxis you can also go around by trishaw. This is a great way to get to nearby places in town. Negotiate a price before you head off. Expect to pay between 35 and 50 RM per hour.

Penang’s public transportation for cruise passengers

The local transportation in Georgetown is rather good. Komtar is the main bus station (see marked in the map above). From here you can take buses all over the island. Bus line 201, 204 stops near the exit of the cruise terminal. Catch one of these busses to go to Penang Hill and Kek Lok Si Temple.

There is no wi-fi available at the cruise port. However you can find lots of coffee places in town to connect to wi-fi when you buy a cup of coffee. Try white coffee at church street of Subway for example.

Pulau Penang Island cruise port

Region Asia

Local Time 2024-04-09 01:41

Port Pulau Penang Island cruise ship schedule shows timetable calendars of all arrival and departure dates by month. The port's schedule lists all ships (in links) with cruises going to or leaving from Pulau Penang Island, Georgetown, Malaysia Penang. To see the full itineraries (ports of call dates and arrival / departure times) and their lowest rates – just follow the corresponding ship-link.

Pulau Penang Island is part of Malaysia (constitutional monarchy in Southeast Asia) as one of all 13 federal states. The state covers a total area of approx 1048 km2 (405 mi2) and has population around 1,67 million. It is also one of the 4 Malaysian states run by a Governor (together with Malacca, Sabah, and Sarawak). Malaysia also has another isle called "Pulau Pinang" - it is a diving site in South China Sea (part of Johor Marine Park) which consist of the islands Pinang, Dayang, Lang, and Aur.

Port Penang is a free port (free economic territory) serving the capital city George Town (also Georgetown). When the British East India Company occupied Penang (August 12, 1786), the isle was named "Prince of Wales Island" to honor the birthday of King George IV (at that time Prince of Wales, 1762-1830). The capital city George Town was named after the ruling King George III (1738-1820).

Penang Island has an area of 295 km2 (114 mi2). It is the 4th-largest island in Malaysia, after Banggi, Bruit and Langkawi islands. Pulau Penang Island is also the most populated in the country with a population of around 678,000. It is connected with mainland Malaysia by the Penang Bridge which begins at Gelugor on the isle and ends in Perai on the mainland.  In 2016, the cruise port handled 150 ship calls and 230,000+ passengers. In 2017, RCCL had scheduled 38 ship calls in Penang (George Town).

In mid-March 2017, RCCL-Royal Caribbean entered into a joint venture (40% stake) with the Porth Authority "Penang Port Sdn Bhd" (PPSB). On September 6, 2018, RCCL and PPSB  Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCL) and Penang Port Sdn Bhd (PPSB) officially signed the joint venture terminal project (~USD 37 million).

RCCL will upgrade and redevelop port's existing facility "Swettenham Pier Cruise Terminal" in George Town. At the upgraded pier will be able to dock two  larger cruise vessels simultaneously. Along with two large liners, the port will be also able to berth 2 more ships - 1 small and 1 medium-sized. The existing berth will be extended from 400 to 688 m (1312 to 2260 ft), by adding 220 m pier plus 118 m long marine dolphin (mooring structure extending above the water but not connected to shore). Terminal's areas will be redeveloped to include a dedicated tour bus parking area. In 2019, RCI scheduled a total of 36 ship calls at Penang.

In August 2019 was announced that Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (government-owned transport company) in 2020 will upgrade Penang Island's ferry service (daily crossings on the Butterworth-Georgetown route) by introducing catamarans to speed up the passenger shipping between the island and mainland Malaysia. For this Rapid Ferry project, the Government allocated MYR 90 million (~USD 21,5 million / ~EUR 19,3 million). Most of the existing ferries will be converted into cruise ships transporting tourists.

Pulau Penang Island cruise terminal

Cruise ships to Pulau Penang Island dock at George Town/Georgetown - on the island's east coast. Most liners dock at Swettenham Pier Cruise Terminal (SPCT), which has capacity to berth 4 vessels at the time (2 larger plus 1 small and 1 medium).

The cruise port (officially Penang Harbour) can handle the world's largest passenger ships at its Swettenham Pier. The pier is located close to the popular tourist attractions Weld Quay, Beach Street, Clock Tower, Esplanade.

As Swettenham Pier has only 2 berths, if those are already occupied, other cruise vessels will be anchored in the harbor waterway and their passengers offloaded and transported to the town via the ship's tender boats. For 2018 was scheduled a port development project included widening of the cruise berths and expanding the passenger terminal.

The budgeted MYR 155 million (Malaysian Ringgit / ~USD 37M) project was planned to start in September 2019. After its completion (scheduled for Sept 2020 but postponed to 2021) terminal's length was expanded northwards from 545 to 793 m (1790-2600 ft). The expanded terminal now has capacity to handle 2 mega-liners simultaneously (on its outer berths) plus 2 smaller-sized ships (1 small plus 1 medium) on its inner berths.

SPCT's expansion resulted in ~30% larger berthing area. The solid deck wharf was extended 220 m towards the terminal's north (from 400 to 620 m / 2034 ft), and the breasting and mooring dolphin were increased, respectively, by 50 m and 68 m.

Penang Day Trip Guide: Exploring Georgetown During a Cruise Stopover

swettenham pier cruise terminal georgetown george town penang

Exclusive to TTI readers: From now till 30th September 2018, book a 4-night Port Klang & Phuket Cruise at only S$399*. Applicable sailing dates: Nov 5 , Nov 12 , and Nov 19 . Promo code and other details below!

Penang to me is a nostalgic safe haven where I look forward to rediscovering again and again. Officially inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, Penang’s capital Georgetown holds more than just history to her lands. The ever-changing scapes of Georgetown prove that there’s always space for creativity and new ideas within the old and static.

A state that celebrates ethnic diversity, Penang’s vibrant colours reflect the multiculturalism of her people that’s not only evident in her streets but also the food. Also, its proximity makes it the perfect short getaway if you do not have much time to spare.

Here, we’ve compiled a list of Must-Sees and Must-Eats of Penang’s Georgetown. If like us, you find yourself in Penang from a short stopover from the cruise, we’ve included our exact itinerary at the end of this post!

Travel Essentials for Penang

Getting around: Georgetown is discoverable by foot, or you can rent a bicycle and explore on two-wheels ! Taking a Grab Car around is cheap too.

Staying connected:   Or the lack thereof. Many cafes in Georgetown has free wifi, so it’s not really necessary to purchase a SIM card for Malaysia. For us, we downloaded Google Maps offline onto our phones (do it before you leave Singapore!) to navigate our way around Georgetown. No problems at all!

Essentials: Bring around ~RM 150 (~S$50) in cash. Also, pack along your shades, sunscreen, and fans (paper fans, portable USB fans, etc.), as the sun and heat in Penang can be unforgiving.

Things to do in Penang

1) visit the old chinese clan entities of penang, i) clan jetties.

The Chew Jetty -

While most of the residents no longer depend on fishing as a livelihood, there are still six clans residing permanently by the waters. Visitors are allowed to explore the clan jetties at any time but do keep in mind to take only pictures and leave only footprints .

ii) Majestic Clan Houses and Mansions

Khoo Kongsi - Penang Food Guide

Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi:  A significant piece of heritage, the Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi (or just “Khoo Kongsi” ) is the largest clan house in Malaysia. Many have also dubbed it the most extravagant clan house in the whole of Southeast Asia with the intricate wood carvings and gilded gold leaves.

Entrance Fee: RM10/pax Address:  18, Cannon Square, George Town, 10450 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia Opening Hours: 9AM – 5PM daily

Blue mansion Penang - Penang Day Trip Guide

Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion (Blue Mansion):  If there’s a colour I could paint my entire house in, it’d be blue. In Fengshui, blue represents water, and water brings growth and wealth. That’s probably what 19th-century Chinese businessman and politician, Cheong Fatt Tze, had in mind when he had his house, the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion , built.

This historical landmark is also a boutique hotel now, and there are guided tours conducted thrice per day for curious visitors. Be ready to feast your eyes on the once-lavish life of Cheong Fatt Tze and his many wives.

Entrance Fee:  RM17/pax Address:  14, Leith Street 10200 Penang, Malaysia Guided Tour Timings:  11AM, 2PM, and 3:30PM daily  

2) Exploring Iconic Old-School Streets

Love Lane:  Besides being a food paradise, Georgetown of Penang is also known to many for her quirky street art and mushrooming hipster cafes. Love Lane is of the most visited lanes of Georgetown where many of the rustic old shophouses have been turned into trendy cafes and cheap backpackers’ hostels.

3) Street Arts in Georgetown

Penang-5D4N Voyager of the Seas Guide

There are a lot of murals (more than 50!) around Georgetown, and some of the more notable ones* are actually located within walking distance of each other. Hunt for some of them at back alleys and forgotten streets while on your way to the next cafe.

If you’re tight on time, you’ll really only need to visit two streets —  Ah Quee Street  and  Lebuh Armenian .

What to Eat & Drink

1) moh teng pheow nyonya koay & canteen.

Moh Teng Pheow Nonya Koay Penang

Hidden in a quiet back alley is one of Penang’s oldest confectionery shop — Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay & Canteen , a household name that many go to for childhood delights.

This canteen serves a colourful array of traditional kuehs handmade from scratch, a taste that is hard to find now in today’s world.

2) China House

We’ve introduced them to you before, and really don’t mind mentioning them again just because their cakes are dope. Get lost  your creative juices flowing in the  longest cafe in Penang  —  China House .  

Cakes and drinks at china house - Penang Cruise Day trip guide

Provided with a cup of loose crayons, patrons are encouraged to draw on the mahjong papers lined on the tables. The best ones get displayed around the cafe! If you think this is just another novelty cafe, you’re wrong. China House’s specialty coffees and the wide selection of cakes are the highlights one must not miss. The signature Tiramisu cake (RM18) got me hooked.

Costs: RM 10.80-20.80/piece Address: 153, Lebuh Pantai, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia Opening Hours: 9AM – 1AM daily

3) 888 Hokkien Mee

This makan place is slightly out of the way from the heart of Georgetown but is one I’ll gladly travel to just to satisfy my cravings for prawn noodles. It is here where you can get more than what you pay for. A basic bowl of prawn noddles cost RM 4.50 (that’s S$1.50), and every additional item such as eggs and pork ribs cost from RM1-2/pc (S$0.30-0.70).

888 Hokkien mee penang - Reasons to go on a cruise

Located approx. 15 mins’ walk away from China House, 888 Hokkien Mee sees mostly locals who crave for the local Malaysian Chinese taste, a generous bowl of hot savoury prawn noodles. For food we can walk, alternatively, a Grab ride should cost less than RM10 for that distance.

Cost: RM4.50/bowl; add-ons at RM1-2/ea Address:  67-A, Lebuh Presgrave, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia Opening Hours: 5PM – 11:45PM daily

Penang is a food haven you’ll never get enough of, here are 6 authentic Penang street foods not to be missed !

4pm: moh teng pheow nyonya koay & canteen.

Moh Teng Pheow Nonya Koay & Canteen

Upon disembarkation, take the free shuttle bus towards the heart of Georgetown (Red Line from Cruise stop marked “10”). We alighted at Leith Street and headed to Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay & Canteen. This old-school confectionary is hidden in a small backstreet, and it takes more than just keen eyes to find it! Though it’s our second time to this place, we’re sure we’ll be back for more!

4:30PM: Exploring Love Lane

Composite pic of TTI at Love Lane Penang - Reasons to go on a cruise

Having a romantic name does come with its perks, like how Love Lane became to be one of the most visited streets of Georgetown. There’s no exact answer to this lane’s alluring name, but one thing we’re sure is that it’s here to stay. While we were there, we couldn’t help but pose in front of the old shophouses’ doors for some OOTD shots. Lovely!

5PM: More sweets at China House

China House Cakes- trendy places in Georgetown_

There’s always room for desserts, so we went all out with desserts when we’re in Penang. After having tasted traditional Chinese kuehs at Moh Teng Pheow, we treated our tastebuds with western delights such as tiramisu and carrot cake.

6PM: Hunting-down Street Arts Around Georgetown

Boy on a bike street art penang - Cruise Penang Day Trip

While we definitely would like to pose with every single mural we saw on the streets of Georgetown, time constraint meant that we only had time to see some of them. We were lucky though, as the area we were at is exactly where the more iconic murals are at.

7PM: Catch the sunset at Clan Jetties of Penang

Lin Jetty penang clan jetty - Reasons to go on a cruise

Getting ourselves back to the vicinity of the port, we realised we still have some time on hand before we needed to embark on the cruise. Chasing that golden glow that’s soon to merge into the horizon, we made our way to one of the clan jetties of Penang — Lim Jetty.

What pulled us to Lim Jetty instead of the more famous Chew Jetty was precisely the void of a crowd. Also, there are many decorative lights and lanterns along the jetty planks.

Lim Jetty is just a 10-min walk away from the Swettenham Pier, but do be there at least an hour before the stipulated boarding time.

Taxis in penang

@ own discretion... you are advised not to pay in major curriencies to taxis whom you may be overcharged... pay @ local curriencies only that is the best suggestions when you travelled aboard anywhere...anytime

Our cruise ship docked here for the day. We walked off the ship, walked along the pier, then up to the pink building. Got out of the pink building through a courtyard, then into another building before exiting the terminal. We were met by a swamp of taxi drivers. They were very aggressive and intimidating followed us all the way out to the streets even after we said 'NO' caused us to miss the tourist information office that is supposedly right outside the terminal on the right. It was much nicer when we got back at the end of the day with the taxis all gone.

swettenham pier cruise terminal georgetown george town penang

We got off the cruise ship and went through the cruise terminal. It was one of the most intimidating experiences I have come across. Taxi drivers and others accosted everyone and were really 'in your face'. They would not take a polite 'no' for an answer. We would meet the same ones in different areas. The area outside was so congested that it wasn't possible to enjoy the port at all. Would not revisit.

Less able tourists have to climb a relatively long flight of stairs and go down an unlit flight of stairs when getting back to the cruise ship. This is very unfriendly for less able tourists as well as being dangerous especially after rain and sunset. Tourists also have to traverse an open area and get throughly drenched in the rain if you do not have an umbrella or forgotten to take one when going ashore for tours. The upgrading of Swettenham Pier by providing a lift and a section of covered walkway would greatly be appreciated by all tourists from cruise ships especially the less able ones.

Easy to find. Next to main road. Nothing much I could say about the terminal. Taxis are everywhere but it can be quite expensive if didn't bargain.

Larger cruise ship docked at this terminal. The facilities are reasonably good. It is located next to the ferry terminal. There are local taxi, tour operators, etc as soon as passengers exit the main terminal. However, the terminal is located in Georgetown itself and one can comfortably walk along Beach Street toward the main city, provided of course, you don't mind the tropical heat and humidity. Beach Street itself is interesting as heritage listed buildings are located along it. Penang was once a thriving port. The heart of the town is probably about 20 minutes walk. Since early 2015, there is a free CAT air-conditioned bus that takes tourist along a fixed route. Hop on and off along the tour. It will eventually finish up at the terminal in a circuit. The bus stop is located directly in front of the entrance to the cruise terminal about 50 metres away. A helpful facility for tourists.
