4 Day 3 Night Georgetown Penang Itinerary – Street Art Murals, Penang Street Food, Georgetown UNESCO Town, Peranakan Heritage

31 December, 2015

There is more to Penang than Georgetown e.g. Penang Hill, Kek Lok Si Temple, Batu Ferringhi but if you just want to chill out at Georgetown for this trip, this is PassportChop.com’s recommended itinerary for you. This is more like a 4 Day 4 Night itinerary since you will land on Friday night – this way, you can maximise the 3 full days you have in Penang (Saturday, Sunday, Monday). You will then fly off to Singapore on Tuesday morning.

Day 3 involves quite a number of places around Georgetown and taking public transport might not be convenient – we engaged a private guide from www.tour-incentive.travel – the cost is RM75 per hour for a limousine (Toyota Camry) with English speaking chauffeur. If you are engaging Tour & Incentive Travel, I strongly recommend you ask for Philip to be your guide/chauffeur as he is a local Penangite with good knowledge of the best eating places and where to find most of the street art murals. He is very patient and understanding and will accommodate to your needs.

Day 4 (Monday)

  • Visit the Chew Jetty – a stretch of houses on stilts – here, you can find souvenir shops and some dessert stalls and see a way of living of these water villages
  • Check out 2 more street art nearby – Children Playing Basketball and Children on Swing with a bonus of Minion Breaking Out of Wall
  • You can consider taking the afternoon to explore other parts of Penang e.g. Batu Ferringhi or Penang Hill or just chill out with one of Penang’s many interesting museums e.g. Upside Down Museum, Glass Museum, Camera Museum
