As you cross one of Asia's longest bridge, you will be able to see Jerejak Island (a former penal colony converted to resort) on your left. As you approach the island, follow the signboard which indicates the direction to Georgetown.
You will now be driving along the coastal road. Here, along this road you have a choice of using the newly opened Jelutong Expressway or the older route via Jalan Mesjid Negeri (Greenlane). We suggest using the latter (Mesjid Negeri) as the Jelutong Expressway is rather complicated.
Driving along the coastal road, keep a look out for the signboard indicating Air Itam/Batu Ferringhi/Tg Bungah which turns left, instead of the one marked 'Georgetown' which goes straight.
By using this road, which takes you through an underpass, you only need make another right turn which takes you straight to Komtar, the city's premier landmark and also the city center. The journey from the coastal road to Komtar is about 20 minutes.
Travelling along Jalan Mesjid Negeri (Greenlane), watch out for the signboard which indicates 'Pusat Bandar' (City Center). You will pass through 5 traffic lights before turning right at the Mesjid Negeri flyover (the state Mosque is on your left as you make the turn).
You are now in Jalan Air Itam/Dato Keramat. Travelling along this road, traffic seems to get slower as you inch closer to the city center till finally you reach Komtar. Continue your journey passing by Komtar and turn left at the pedestrian bridge. You are now in Burmah Road.
The first right turn in Burmah road takes you to Transfer Road. Drive on till you see a Caltex petrol station and just after Caltex, turn left into Argyll Road. We are just before MAA Building.
