Help! Need food and car info on Georgetown in Penang

Hello everyone, I'm taking my father for a Bypass Surgery at the Penang Adventist Hospital , we'll be staying at George town city hotel. We arrive at 9 pm...

1. What's the best, and cheapest way to get to the hotel from airport? taxi?

2. Do you know any good restaurants around the hotel?

3. Is hiring a driver the best way to travel around? Do you have a contact info for one?

Your input will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Hi Arlene,

The best and cheapest way from the airport is by taxi, as I don't think in this case the bus would be suitable if you are travelling for surgery. I can reccommend Mr Raja Alright: +60194211916. He is an older indian gentleman with a clean smoke free car. He is pleasant, respectful and drives safely. He is also insured and does tours. I believe having a driver is the best way to travel in your case.

I am sorry I can't answer your other question as I haven't been to many resturants in georgetown. The 2 local places near you that I can reccommend are: Northam Beach Cafe/Hawker and Goodall hawker.

cheers

Angela
