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 is exceptional.

Public Transport

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, 303 and 304 pass by along the road.

The nearest schools are Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Gelugor and SRJK (C) Keong Hoe. The nearest market are the Lip Sin Market and Super Tanker Market. The nearest hypermarket is Tesco Extra while the nearest mall is Queensbay Mall. There aren't any nearest hospital, with both Lam Wah Ee Hospital and Pantai Hospital about equal distance away.


Traffic along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah in front of The View is heavy for much of the day, and increases towards rush hour. The Sungai Dua-Sunny Ville junction is perenially congested.
