PENANG Runaround 7 (Weld Quay - Gurney Drive - Beach Street)

Penang Day 5!

Our penultimate day in Penang, we did not have any specific plans other than having breakfast at Roti Canai Jalan Argyll nearby.

We had actually slept in this morning and arose at a quarter to nine. We eventually got ready an hour later and arrived at the breakfast destination at ten in the morning.

A round of Roti Canai and a drink for everyone came to RM13.00 (approximately USD/EUR3). We then headed to the bus stop in front of the 7-Eleven at Jalan Penang and caught the Rapid Penang Free CAT bus all the way to Jetty Bus Terminal B at Weld Quay.

Here we switched over to the Rapid Penang #101 bus for a fare of RM1.40 each (approximately USD/EUR0.30) to Gurney Paragon Mall at Gurney Drive. We paid the H&M store a visit in search of a T-shirt that I took a liking to, but it was not to be found.

We then hailed a Grab car for a fare of RM13.00 (approximately USD/EUR3) to the Birch House Heritage Building. Located at Dato' Keramat Road, and now part of Penang Times Square it was built in 1908 to house the office of Eastern Smelting.

We all had drinks with fries at McDonald’s for RM18.30 (approximately USD/EUR4) then walked over to 1st Avenue Mall. Here we visited another H&M store and found the T-shirt I was looking for.

We then walked over to the Komtar Bus Terminal and caught another Rapid Penang Free CAT bus to Padang Kota Lama. Here we walked across Light Street and headed to Merlin Hotel.

We had lunch at Nasi Kandar Merlin that came to RM31.50 (approximately USD/EUR7), which consisted of a plate of white rice with fried chicken and a generous sampling of all their curries.

Lunch out of the way we decided to walk back to the hotel via Lebuh Campbell and it being our penultimate day in Penang stopped by Lebuh Keng Kwee to take home three packets of Cendol that we enjoyed at the hotel later.

We hope to have dinner tonight at a typical Penang Chinese food court, so please stay tuned.
Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
