"Perai & Seberang Jaya" Perai by SLLiew

Perai Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 31 photos

While Perai is an old township, Seberang Jaya is the new township created to move some of the development from Penang Island into the Penang Mainland of Seberang Perai.

As surprisingly, there is no VT location for Seberang Jaya, I have put all the tips for Seberang Jaya under the closest town which is Perai.

While in Seberang Jaya, you can do some shopping and eating as things are generally cheaper than Penang Island.

There is also a Penang Bird Park and few places to do some exercise if you can caught by the traffic jam on Penang Bridge and have an hour or more to spend.

    Found the Vendor foods quite interesting..could not believe that duck was less expensive than chicken/pork. Duck is much more expensive in US. Apom dessert sounds wonderful.

    Your descriptions of the traditional Malayian food dishes was very interesting! I also enjoyed the information on Penang's mainland bridge - it reminded me of a similar one between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island!

    Taman Tunku sounds to be a nice place for activities, and exploring all the food stalls sounds great.

    Nice start on Perai. Are you sure the street food is safe?
