Interesting question.... It really depends on what you appreciate/like to do when you travel!! Chulia street is a historically active, diverse street that is frequented by locals--- and not many tourists. The restaurants are more "authentic" and locally owned. Gurney drive is more modern with two very large Malls, many restaurant chains and lots of imported stuff for "tourists" [some of whom are also Malaysian--- not from Penang. It also has a long gracious walk along what was once the Straits of Malacca-- but is now a huge "land reclamation project"!!
I prefer Chulia street to wonder down and get a feel for what Penang culture is, and has been like!!
