About

KOMTAR is short for Kompleks Tunku Abdul Razak, named after the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, who officiated the piling of Phase 1 on 1 January 1974. The sixth tallest building in Malaysia was constructed in 1974 and completed in 1986. This 65-storey high rise tower in central Georgetown is cylindrical in shape can be found at the confluence of the Jalan Penang and Jalan Magazine. Komtar comprises of a multipurpose complex, comprising retail outlets, a transportation hub and administrative offices for the Penang state government. Three more storeys were added, raising the height of Komtar tower to 249 metres (817 ft) as part of a revitalisation plan in 2015.


Stands as one of the most prominent landmarks in Penang, its lower floors are retail spaces occupied by local boutiques and lots of stalls specialising in cell phone, camera and laptop repairs. The mall has an outdoor strip, called Komtar Walk, connected to the adjacent Prangin Mall. The lower ground floor of Komtar Penang mall is home to a bus terminal with Rapid Penang bus operators that serve the entire Georgetown area thus, making it very easily accessible.


To get here by public bus, just board the ones with Komtar sign. If you are coming from Penang Airport, it would be much easier to take a taxi or Uber/Grab car. Be sure to deal with fee before boarding to prevent scamming. Unlike KL city, getting around on your feet in Georgetown is quite harmful due to lack of facilities for pedestrian.


Tourist Attractions

Penang Street Art

Visiting the Street Art is definitely the best option if you are in Georgetown. Some of the old walls in Georgetown has been given a fresh breath by a Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic. He then formed a collaboration with some of the local artists to turn the dull walls into vibrant and attractive mural art. These murals are the latest sensation that attract many people to Penang these days. No admission fee is being charged. If you are planning to visit the murals, plan your itinerary well as some of them require a long queue just to take picture.
