The history of the various jetties and the area is interesting to read about on-site. There are lots of little shops selling some reasonably priced goods, while others are obviously aimed at tourists and more expensive. An easy walk from anywhere in Georgetown city area.

Everyone who visits has penang has to come for an insight in chinese life on the jetty. At times a bit smelly but thought provoking.

Nothing special but pricey restaurant. Traffic is a bit messy around the area no traffic light at all.

Can have a walk there and have some famous big bowl noodle. Enjoy the wind but hot. Do not expect any nice view or proper jetty condition.

Market style store out in the jetty - nice view of Penang bridge from the end. Be careful of overpriced tourist items as you can find better prices elsewhere for souvenirs and food. Worth a visit.
