  • It is not frequented by most since the existence of Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon. There is however a glass sky-walk in the shape of a "U" so those interested could go check that out.  more »
  • Komtar is a 65-story cylindrical building, tallest building in Georgetown's think. And around trishaws and walk through the streets of Georgetown, we can determine the komtar from many places, very encouraging. It was use the sister hotel, the hotel Jen departure Shuttle, we have stayed at the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang in Batu ferringhi. Is located next to komtar Hotel jen was so confused was aimed at komtar. Even tourists were lined with shops on the lower floor of komtar, stop and have seen the product, as did the passage States.

  • We bought bus tickets from Komtor to Melakka and trying to find the travel office was quiet hard even asking locals, it seems to work that the first part is shops, next row back is eating/money change...  more »

  • Very old place. last 5 years ago to be a place must go before hari raya to buy new cloth. But now no more.
  • So far ok but it's so damn jam and no place to park, it's so hot weather down the street no rains only hot sun
  • This shopping complex and offices has been there for quite some times since i was in school days..accesible parking at multi storey parking beside the complex. Best time to do shopping is at noon till 9.00pm..located at the centre of Penang island..very easy access to the complex from penang bridge or by ferry..main attractions for locals and tourists to do sight seeing..window shopping and shopping..
  • Tallest building in town. Easy to recognize. Busy traffic nearby.
  • It's so bad for reaching in another point in Penang you always have to come one of these main terminals. :/
