Gurney Drive otherwise called The New Esplanade is a lovely seaside promenade on the island of Penang, Malaysia. Really, Gurney drive is more reputed for its popular hawker centre even before its beautiful esplanade area! Some of the most upscale and modern residential Penang properties are located along this premium waterfront area!
If you are posted to Penang and if you like to be in touch with nature without being too far from the city, Gurney Drive is definitely a place to consider. There are quite a number of sea view condominiums with modern facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, play area for children, sauna, 24-hour security and the likes. Should you be looking for a Penang apartment, there is a good choice of apartments and condominium blocks along the Gurney Drive such as 11 Gurney Drive, Gurney Park Condominium and The Regency to name a few. The best part of living in these apartments is to be able to walk down the promenade with the cool sea breeze against your face in the evenings.
Gurney Plaza is one of Penang’s most popular shopping malls and is located along the Gurney Drive. The shopping plaza has everything you could ever need under one roof and takes care of all shopping needs from food to fashion and not to mention movies! You can happily do a lot of window shopping in the Gurney Plaza during the hot sultry afternoons and walk down the promenade for an evening bite and a stroll! Personally I think living in Gurney Drive is a classic case having your pudding and eating it too!
