Hi there ,
I would personally give it a pass if the tram is not available.
The number 1 thing I look forward to is eating at the Passage Thru India restaurant in Penang. If you like Indian food, I can not stress enough how great this place is. And I am not at all affiliated with the place, it is really just that good, but then again if you are researching Penang online, you have probably already read a lot about it. I also hear it moved to a different location and there is an impostor in the previous location. You will want to make sure you go to the right place. Gl on your trip!
