The unglamorous commercial twin of Georgetown, the old port of Butterworth used to handle significant volumes of exports of the Malay Peninsula in the days of early Penang. Now its revamped center is the North Butterworth Container Terminal. Named after T. Butterworth, governor of Singapore and Malacca from 1843 to 1855, it is remembered for its ferries, which brought many happy travelers to the pleasures and treasures to what older generations called the "Island of Betel Nuts". An old fighter jet at the former base of the Royal Australian Air Force is another artifact for the memory.
