Store your luggage around Butterworth with Bounce

A major town within the larger city of Seberan Parai, Butterworth sits around 300 km north of Kuala Lumpur. Just on the other side of the Penang Strait from George Town, the capital of Penang, Butterworth is still relatively unknown to foreign tourists. This means that if you're looking for an authentic experience of Malaysia, this is a great place to get it.

The presence of Butterworth train station makes the town easy to reach from George Town. Once there, you'll find Butterworth has beautiful architecture, friendly people, fascinating history, and of course, excellent food, like everywhere in Malaysia. The city uses both metric and imperial units as a legacy of its British past, but don't let that confuse you. Let yourself go with the flow in this sometimes chaotic city, and you'll come away with a deeper understanding of the variety Malaysia has to offer.

In a city as busy and vibrant as this, the last thing you want to do is carry heavy bags around with you. You might be able to find luggage lockers in the ferry terminal or luggage storage spots in the city's train stations, but you can make things easier on yourself by booking luggage storage in Butterworth before you arrive. That way, you'll know your bags will be safely looked after while you get to grips with this intriguing area.

Top things to do in Butterworth

Although it doesn't often show up on people's travel bucket lists, Butterworth has plenty to do that makes it worth visiting. Home to Malaysia's first bird park, it's also close to some incredible natural scenery and makes a great place to stay if you want to explore George Town. Try some of these things to do to get the most out of the city.

Museums in Butterworth

  • Fort Cornwallis: Just across the strait in George Town, this 18th-century British fort is the best place to get to grips with the colonial history of this part of Malaysia. You can take a guided tour of the fort to learn more about the effects of this military installation on the area, or explore it yourself and simply enjoy the magnificent ocean views. Either way, don't forget to leave your luggage behind in a convenient luggage storage facility since large bags are not allowed inside.
  • Upside Down Museum: This fun museum, also located in George Town, makes use of optical illusions to provide some of the best photo opportunities in the area. You'll feel as though you're walking on the ceiling of the carefully designed sets, and the staff will help make sure you get some incredible photos that are almost impossible to believe.
  • Meowseum Museum Of Cat Art & Craft: This frankly bizarre museum is worth exploring for its sheer weird factor alone. The exhibits on display are all related in one way or another to cats, and it's interesting to see the creative approach people have taken to this seemingly simple topic. Note that the museum is marked "For Adults Only," as some of the art here is not appropriate for children. Yes, it's strange. But it's not a place you will easily forget. You should also note that there is no luggage storage available in the small museum, so you want to make sure you store your luggage safely before you visit.

Shopping in Butterworth

Most of the major shopping experiences in the area tend to be across the strait in George Town. The shops you will find in Butterworth tend to be small, local groceries, hardware stores, and other necessary but not particularly exciting things. Still, there are a few opportunities to do some shopping in the area.

  • Billions Shopping Center: This shopping center, the largest in Butterworth, contains a grocery store and several other outlets selling everything from fashion to shoes to mobile phones. There's also a food court with some good hawker stalls for refreshments while you shop.
  • 1st Avenue Mall: Located in George Town, this large mall offers a food court and stores selling everything you could possibly want, including electronics, clothes, shoes, and food. If you want to find everything you need under one roof, this is the place to do it.
  • Prangin Mall: This more traditional shopping area isn't really a mall but a street full of traditional Malaysian clothing and housewares stores, along with a good selection of restaurants.

Restaurants in Butterworth

One thing Butterworth certainly doesn't lack is restaurants. But this isn't the big city, so most of what you'll find here is traditional Malaysian food. Luckily, that's both cheap and delicious and a great way to spend some time on your vacation.

  • Ambassadress: Located in a hotel of the same name, this hawker stall serves classic Malaysian and Chinese food at low prices. Try the clay pot chicken rice for a hearty and delicious meal in Butterworth.
  • Saravanas: This authentic Indian restaurant is a great place to come for a mutton biryani or banana leaf curry rice that combines the flavors of Malaysia with those of India.
  • Khunthai: The place to come in Butterworth for Thai food, this restaurant serves classics like pad Thai with a delicious Malaysian twist.
