    This company must have Thai marketing as Tourist prices are more than double citizen prices.

    The hop on hop off bus does a real nice circuit around George town. I was down there a few months ago and got around on it.

    Its leaves from the water front where the ferries berth.

    This is a new venture. Apart from the first week [ now ] when its free you have to pay unlike the other one you would have caught.

    Good to know.

    I'll stick with the (generally pretty good) standard bus service on my next trip then.

    Yes Right, I jumped the free around town bus, not a hop on hop off.

    Good idea though for Penang to do that.

    These buses are now driving around empty. Tourists can get a 7 day RapidPenang bus pass for RM 30 so not a surprise.
