Airport

Penang International Airport is located 20 km (13 miles) from George Town city centre. The most cost effective way of travelling from the airport to George Town and surrounding areas is to take one of the bus services (bus line 102, 306,U401,401, 401A and 401E) that leave every 30 minutes. The bus operator is called "The Rapid Penang", and they have their own ticket counter on the ground floor of the arrival hall. Taxis operate on a fixed price coupon system: purchase coupon at taxi desk inside arrival hall, and the price depends which zone you are going to. However, be aware that taxi drivers often try to cheat foreigners and refuse to use the meter, so make sure that the meters is always turned on if not a fixed price is already set.
