The View is 8.8 km from Magazine Circus. Nevertheless, on smooth traffic it is easy to reach city centre smoothly through the Jelutong Expressway
. It is ideal for those working in the city or in the south side, and the namesake view of Penang Bridge
You probably do not take public transport if you stay at The View, but your maid probably would. The nearest bus stop is along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, either walk uphill in the Batu Uban direction, or downhill in the USM main gate direction. Either way, it is far. Rapid Penang
Bus No. 301
pass by along the road.
