We are a going to Penang end of July and will stay for 3 full days there. I am doubting whether it is better and substantially cheapper to rent a car and explore Penang on our own or better to higher a car with a driver? We are not ready to pay too much for expensive tours, but if highring a driver for half a day would be just slightly more than renting a car, but saving a lot of stress, than it is definitely an option.
We are a family with 3 children 7, 10, and 2.5. and are planning to visit a number of usual touristic places incl temples, George town and the NP, but also spending some time just swimming (we will stay at Batu Ferringini) -> so more likely making half day tours.
Please advise on:
- rental car or driver with car? if a driver, any recommendations? should this booked much in advance?
- best places to visit in 3 days considering children
Thanks a lot in advance!
