There are many ways to get to Penang in Malaysia, the fastest of which is through its air hub, the Penang Bayan Lepas International Airport. The airport is situated about 16 kilometres from Penang's Capital City, George Town. The airport connects Penang to other Asian locations such as Hong Kong, Xiamen, Jakarta, Singapore and Bangkok. Its ideal location puts it close to many George Town attractions as well as other prominent locations.
The best way to get around town is by cheap car hire at Penang Airport. Historical buildings as well as religious sites make George Town a great place to explore Penang's past. Among the best monuments in town are the Fort Cornwallis, Khoo Kong Si, Weld Quay and the Penang Museum and Art Gallery.
Prominent religious sites worth a drive by on your car hire at Penang Airport are the Goddess Mercy Temple (Kuan Yin Teng), Kapitan Keling Mosque, Wat Chaiyamamgalaram, and the Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple.
Also not to miss is the view from the Penang Hill, which overlooks the greatness of George Town and the Penang Bridge. Whether you choose to go hiking or be lifted through the cable train, the cool breezes and atmosphere of the hill provides great contrast to the humid coastal plain.
You could also take your car rental at Penang Airport to various botanic gardens, butterfly farms, reptile gardens and other wildlife and plant houses, especially the Snake Temple where you could observe, and even touch some fairly tamed and devenomed snakes. The tropical spice garden is also a great site where species of exotic flora are cultivated.
