A sprinkling of cheap Penang hotels can be found south, in the progressive township of Bayan Baru, home to numerous shopping malls and casual restaurants. If you're looking for budget-friendly accommodations near the beach, head to Batu Ferringhi on the northern coast. It's a popular area for tourists because of its water sports facilities.

Chulia Mansion is one of the highest-rated rated cheap hotels in Penang. Located in the Chinatown area of Georgetown, its colourful rooms, and free Wi-Fi and breakfast are a hit among guests. Nearby is the charming, colonial-style Ke-lan-tan House, where guests can enjoy free Wi-Fi in ornately decorated rooms. It's well known for its vintage atmosphere, friendly service, and affordable rates. Wassup Youth Hostel, also centrally located in Georgetown, is another great option to save money.

Penang is chock-full of delicious dining options where you can fill your stomach without having to spend a lot of money. Georgetown's busy Chinatown district is seething with stalls where you can gorge on iconic dishes like stir-fried rice noodles and congee. Exotic meals can be had for cheap in nearby Little India, a colourful enclave where the streets are redolent with spices coming from stalls serving up Indian classics like tandoori chicken. For the ultimate in street cuisine, head over to the Hawker Centre on the Gurney Drive seafront promenade, and feast on classic fare such as asam laksa and curry mee.

Their murals, depicting facets of everyday Penangite life, are painted on quaint houses and shops where you can buy handmade souvenirs. For a slice of Penang's rich past, head over to Fort Cornwallis, the largest standing fort in the country. Pay a nominal entrance fee to view military memorabilia, such as huge cannons, in this 18th-century fort built by the British East India Company. Later, spend a laid-back afternoon working on your tan while watching the windsurfers on the beaches of Batu Ferringhi. After sunset, grab some tasty street food while hunting for bargains at Batu Ferringhi's legendary night market.
