Gurney Plaza is easy to find, every taxi driver knows the mall. You can also go by bus. When you travel from Batu Ferringhi, you take the bus to Georgetown. From the center of Georgetown you take the bus to Batu Ferringhi. Give the driver a notice in advance that you need to get out at Gurney Drive and the driver will indicate when you're almost there so you can press the stop button to get out. Usually you will get out of the bus at the big roundabout. From there it is a 5 minute walk to the main entrance (which is located at the sea side).
