Bukit Gambir, often written as Bukit Gambier, is a newly established neighbourhood in Penang. It is located along Jalan Bukit Gambir, which is the extension of Yeap Chor Ee Road.

Bukit Gambir is primarily a residential neighbourhood that includes Gambir Heights, Jade View and the affluent neighbourhood of Palace Hill. The area was only established in the early 2000, as demand for residential properties pushed development towards the hill sides. A large part of the campus of Universiti Sains Malaysia in Minden is also located within Bukit Gambir.

Getting there
