"We took a cab from our hotel, G Hotel, at Gurney Drive and paid RM60 one way. Of course this was a rip-off, but we had no other choice as we were only in town for 2 days. The taxi driver dropped us off right in front of the main entrance. At the same time many hundreds of other people we arriving. Little did we know that Saturday is the busiest day of the week; it appeared that almost everyone on the island decided to head over to this mall on the day of our visit. We had a great time, many new stores; stores that I did not spot before on the island. We enjoyed our sushi at Sakae Sushi. There was a huge line in front of the restaurant, but luckily we didn't need a complete booth, so we were seated right in front of the head chef."
Queensbay is only a 10 minute drive from Penang International Airport; so you could opt to visit the mall if you have some time to spare before your flight.
