Insiders’ tips.
  • Technically, you can travel the island by bike, but due to the hot weather it’s much better to just rent a car from one of the many licensed dealers. It’s quite cheap too!
  • The fastest way to get here is by a flight. Ferries from Penang Island and the mainland are also operational but there isn’t a big difference in price to make up for the drastically different travel times.
  • Kuah is the perfect place to get duty-free cheap booze, chocolates and cigarettes. Do read up on the limits before going on your shopping frenzy.
