Georgetown Freebies

Spectacled langurs in the Penang Botanic Garden

Who says nothing is for free anymore? We have come across a few great freebies in and around Georgetown worth mentioning:

  • Visit the Penang Botanic Gardens where you can spot long-tailed macaques and spectacled langurs in the wild
  • Explore Georgetown’s Old Town using the Free shuttle bus
  • Get a free cup of coffee at Prangin Mall’s Secret Recipe with purchase of a piece of cake between 3-6 PM (you have to ask for the free coffee special)
  • Visit the Chew Clan Jetty to see stilt house life
  • Make ATM withdrawals without fees at HSBC Bank on Lebuh Pantai (however, your home bank may charge you)
  • Ride the Penang Ferry from Georgetown to Butterworth (however, Butterworth to Georgetown costs RM 1.20)
  • And remember, visits to most mosques, churches and temples are free (donations are appreciated)

Great views of Penang from the ferry
