When you arrive at Butterworth railway station the easiest and cheapest way to get to Georgetown is on the ferry to Penang Island, which is just short walk from the station.

Ignore the taxi drivers wanting to take you to the island!

Not only will the journey be longer as you will have to travel all the way out to the Penang Bridge, but it will cost you a RM100++ compared to the RM1.20 you have to pay for the ferry.

If you want to take a taxi to your hotel on the island, wait until you cross on the ferry and get one from in front of the jetty - it will save you a small fortune!

Once you get over to the island, it is around a ten minute walk to get to the popular inexpensive accommodation area around Chulia Street (the entrance to which you can see on your left, when you come out onto the main road from the ferry) and Love Lane.



If you are travelling on to other destinations within Malaysia, the Butterworth bus station has frequent buses to most Malaysian destinations as well as to Singapore.

It is also just a minute or two walk in front of the station exit.
