Komtar Penang is a 65-storey high rise tower in central Georgetown that is one of the most prominent landmarks in Penang. Its lower floors are retail spaces occupied by local boutiques and lots of stalls specialising in cell phone, camera and laptop repairs, while upstairs are office lots. Penang’s tallest structure is cylindrical in shape and the sixth-tallest building in Malaysia. It is home to the state govenrment’s office and can be found at the confluence of the Jalan Penang and Jalan Magazine. An indispensable part of Penang’s tourism scene, a great reason to visit is for its 58th floor viewing deck which offers views of the island and across the straits to Penang’s mainland.
