can you believe on my 4 days in Malaysia i could find a way to get to Georgetown, Penang which took me about 5 hours to get there from Kuala Lumpur and it was a minute decision! now that's what i called spontaneous. all of that only because i was so curious to see the Clan Jetties Floating Village. whoo!
how to get there:
go to KL central ('cause there's where all the train begins), go to Masjid Jamek by Rapid KL train, then to Plaza Rakyat. find a bus that goes to Butterworth. i used Intercity bus which cost you 31rm. after you got to Butterworth, hop onto a ferry that goes to Georgetown which only cost you 1.20rm! cheap right? and to get back to the main island, you don't have to pay for the ferry again.
