Jelutong, Penang Island

Jelutong is a town that is located in Penang Island, Penang. The area referred to here is a residential zone primarily inhabited by the state's lower-income local Chinese community. This is due to the abundance of cheap housing available in the region. Despite this, however, density levels remain higher than most areas due to its proximity to the state's capital city, which suffers from notoriously bad traffic problems. While the living conditions in this area are not optimal, the availability of affordable options makes it an attractive choice for budget-conscious consumers seeking low-cost housing solutions. However, it's important to note that the density might contribute to increased air and noise pollution, making it less attractive to some homebuyers.

The built-up available in this town is 1,000 sf to 3,600 sf for houses. Other neighbouring towns nearby are Air Itam, Bandar Sri Pinang, Bukit Dumbar, Farlim, Green Lane, Minden Heights, Penang Turf Club and The Light Waterfront.
