What are the MUST see sights in Penang, just in a day ?

It would be of a great help if i could get the list of *must see's* in Penang island. Unfortunately we do not have more than a day (as a part of cruise timings, Superstar Virgo)

Also what are the shopping options available in the city ?

Thanks in anticipation

What is a must see is a very personal choice.

The best suggestion is to tap into what is already on this page . . . look at the green banner at the top of this page and check out the ‘Travel Guide’ / ‘Inside Guides’ [in the MORE tab] and ‘Things To Do’ which list lots of pointers of what to see and where to go as well as other information like restaurants, as well as read recent reviews

then on the right check out FAQs / top questions about . . . . . .

--------------------------->

Everyone forgets or misses the Top or Frequently Asked Questions/FAQs [especially if using smart phones], which are packed with lots of really great information about lots of really useful information!! If you are accessing TA via the smart phone app’ you won’t see the Green Banner or FAQs in the normal app view on your phone, so suggest that you view the app it as full site mode / desk top view; or just use a laptop or pc to enjoy the information that has been collected.

See what appeals to you and your time scale.

If you've only got a day, head to George Town and spend as much or as little time as you want.

you could have Ocean Jupiter meet you at the ship and take you on a tour ...they are very good and a four hour tour round the city etc will take in many temples ....butterfly farm ...Fort Cornwallis to name just a few

Works out just on RM100.00 for the four hours and will give you a great insight
