  • Nice place for shopping and play bowling, Food court also very near , perfect place for hangouts
  • A lot of cool things can be done now at KOMTAR compare to previous year
  • Vast complex, although some parts are run down and out of business. It's being revived with some new projects and developments.
  • Low maintenance and cleaning service in certain places
  • A little disappointed with retail stores....lots of closed downed businesses. Jewellery stores reasonably priced. New Skywalker at The Top new attractions too pricey. Not sure if it is discounted on Penang Privilege Card.

Where to stay in George Town

As an established tourist destination, George Town offers a range of options making use of the city's famous architectural diversity, with boutique hotels in the old town themed around the history of the building they occupy. For such singular accommodations, expect to pay a little more. Budget hotels and unbranded local options provide a comfortable night sleep at an affordable rate. The coastal areas offer more expensive resort-style luxury rooms with sea views, while away from the beaten track, you'll find backpacker hostels providing good options for those wanting to keep on the move.
