The Penang Maps covers the 285km of the island. Our tortoise shape island has many interesting places of interest. Georgetown itself holds many interesting places to visit. Separated from the island by a narrow 3km channel is Butterworth.
Learning Google Maps
Further up, you see 4 arrows, North , South, East and West. Hover the mouse over to move North, South, East or West of Penang. Easy? It is, isn't it?
The better way to explore Penang map is "View Larger Map". It may take some time to upload so please be patient.
See the word "more"? Place a tick on photos, all photos taken by net users will appear. So you have an idea where the location is.
Then you have three choices of maps, "Map, Satellite and Terrain". Click on each of them and see what happen. If you click on "Map, it shows some main roads. Satellite will show the picture taken a few days back by Google. Terrain shows the hills, mountain and flat roads. How you understand the maps better now. Play it and you will understand better.
I find maps prepared by Google easy and interactive. The easier way to see a google map is always click on " View Larger Map" Once you have done so, it opens up to a bigger map where you can see what has been prepared.
For example, the Batu Ferringhi hotel maps shows you all the hotel as if you are driving along the coastal stretch of the north part of Penang Island. Then here is the trick. There are two ways to enjoy the map. You can click on the green pins on the map or you can click on the left side of the map which states the names of the hotels along Batu Ferringhi.
For now, I won't delete old maps. you get to view some old and some new maps here. Old maps are taken from brochures when I started this web site. Now even me, half century old learns the new way. ::))
Anyway, I won't want you to lose out and try my best to furnish you with some great maps of Penang, same time you can get more idea how to get around in our island with ease. Click on the picture for a bigger photo.
