Seberang Jaya - New Town, Penang: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Seberang Jaya is just across the Penang Bridge on the mainland. It has 3 major shopping places, the Pacific Mall, Carrefour hypermarket and Makro hypermarket.

Also all the major state services have moved from Penang Island to the mainland (Seberang Jaya) which has more land space. So where former rice fields are the new Passport Offices, Registration for Motor Vehicles, State Library, public Swimming Pool, etc.

There are many popular local food stalls in Chai Leng Park.

Penangites still prefer to stay on the island and so many commutes across the bridge.

Address: Seberang Jaya, Penang
Directions: Mainland centered around Butterworth-Kulim Expy & North-South Expy.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
