Where to stay in Butterworth?

About Butterworth, Penang

The main town on the mainland side of Penang, Butterworth is an important transportation hub, home to Penang’s main ferry terminal and train station. It is not a big tourist destination apart from visitors going to and from Penang Island, but it has much to offer, including a few hotels that sit close to the North Channel.

Don’t Miss

The Prai River Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge that runs for 1.5 kilometres across the Prai River. It is an award winning dual three-lane bridge that is distinctive for its twin 40 metre tall concrete pylons.

The Penang Bird Park boasts over 300 species of birds from around the world and is popular amongst bird enthusiasts and families. Another great place to see wildlife is the Air Hitam Dalam Educational Forest, which is home to a variety of flora and fauna that is seen by walking through the forest along boardwalks and suspension bridges.

Tow Boo Kong Temple, or the Nine Emperor Gods Temple, is a beautiful Taoist temple that features a number of fascinating sculptures and carvings. 50 craftsmen from China were brought over to build the impressive temple which hosts the annual Nine Emperor Gods Festival.

Restaurants and Bars

The best place to eat cheap food is in the Jalan Raja Uda neighbourhood, which is filled with hawker stalls and restaurants. There are also numerous places to eat in the Sunway Carnival Mall, with everything from sit-down Japanese restaurants to fast-food outlets like Burger King, Pizza Hut and Baskin Robbins. There are also restaurants within some of the hotels, with the Aroma Hotel also boasting a cosy lounge.

Shopping

Taman Selat Rope Walk is the best place to pick up antiques, though there are also some boutiques along this street.
