Talk:Penang

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

I think the time has come to turn Penang into a real region page and split off all attractions into subpages. George Town and Batu Ferringhi are obvious, but how about the rest? Can eg. Kek Lok Si be comfortably filed under George Town? Jpatokal 05:41, 19 Sep 2005 (EDT)

That would a challenging work to break it into subpages, but I would try it later. The definition of George Town is unclear, and personally I don't think Kek Lok Si should be filed under George Town. - Alex Lee 23:17, 19 Sep 2005 (UTC+8)

Info bar[edit]

Um. Penang is not an independent country and non-countries haven't gotten their own infobars on Wikitravel before... I think, at the very least, the formatting should be changed to make it clear that Penang is a part of Malaysia and the redundant stuff (electricity and whatever) should be stripped out.

Someone removed hotels etc[edit]

Hello, If I remember correctly there was a list of cheap hotels here. Someone has removed all of them and only Equatorial has remained. (I think I took the addresses from here before I come to malaysia)

Perhaps they're in the articles focusing on smaller parts of Penang? - Todd VerBeek 22:24, 4 May 2007 (EDT)

Taxi fares[edit]

I think it would be great if there are some information on the taxi fares from which major hotels to major attractions. Maybe a two dimension table would be gd.

island or state?[edit]

The article is confusing as it stands. It includes info on Butterworth on the mainland but it begins "Penang is an island". I think we need a separate article for the State. Shep 12:13, 19 February 2011 (EST)

Penang State includes both the island, Pulau Pinang, and the stretch of the mainland now known as Seberang Prai. New York state includes New York city, but most people are not confused for long.
