One way road, winding, coastal (meaning one big wrong move, your car will either tumble off the road down the cliff to the sea or ram into oncoming vehicle. Pretty busy road, as it is one (the most commonly used) of the only three routes to Batu Ferringhi (aside from Balik Pulau and Mount Erskine direction).
Donno what the OP is expecting, a donkey-trail or something...
This is call Kiausism at its best. I have done SG to Penang on the same day. Left at 3 am arrive Penang at 8 then left 1 pm from Penang and back home at 7 pm in SG
I did that until my car odometer reach zero back in five years !!.
No sweat no big deal. If you are from Oz driving from Canberra to Sydney will be more challenging !!
