dont quite understand this.
Anyway, its easy to get a taxi at the airport. Any taxi will take you to queensbay upon request. But taking taxi right at the airport exit can be quite expensive. Insist the driver to turn on the meters. Its approximately 10 kilometers to get to Queenbay.
Cheapest hotels will be at Georgetown. Plenty of them, guesthouse, inns, hotels both high ends and lower ends.
have a good time at Penang
thank you for your information,,it will be very usefull for me,,but i am curious to know about the cost of taxi from penang international airport???

It should be less than rm10.
Just act as if you are familiar with Penang. If he dont want to turn the meter on, there is another option you can do. Bargain. Its very common to bargain taxi fares here localy.
When you arrive at the airport there is a taxi coupon booth for the airport taxis. They are differnt rates depending on where you want to go. From memory I think from the airport to Georgetown it was around 30MYR? We went to the beach area Batu F and it was 67MYR.
Or you can go outside the airport and bargain a cheaper one.
There is also a bus, probably several from the airport which I think is the "102" which goes to Georgetown and the beach area. Around 3MYR.
For cheap accomodation in a guesthouse try Lebuh Chulia which is in the China Town area. We had a family room for 30MYR.
