“Empty and Dirty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Just an old and empty building. But as a landmark of Penang Island, at least you should see up close. No need to go into it,just around there where many places to do shopping such as 1st avenue mall and Prangin mall

Handy locations.
Variety of food.
Very good for shopping.
Money exchange provides fare rate.

The only thing I don't like is not much fruit selection hereby.

Its the No.1 landmark in Georgetown,Penang. But its not maintained and dirty. Inside jz an empty building waiting to be tear down.Look just like an haunted building,feel horrible and scary espeacially if you are lost inside this huge,empty building thanks to management didn't put up any proper sign.

“Komtar scenic view on the 60th floor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Bought 5-RM tickets at the information counter on the ground floor of Komtar and one of the staff directed us to the elevator. The observation deck was on the 60th floor and was not 360 degrees as I thought. All in all, it had spectacular view but, apart from a small exhibition and a small souvenir shop, much of it was just empty space, hence nothing else much to do.
