Penang Bridge



Malaysia / Penang

After a brief stop-over in Taiping Lake Gardens, we drove up to Penang island (Pulau Pinang). Yes, drove to the island, via Penang Bridge of course!

The magnificent Penang Bridge is the longest in Malaysia and one of the longest bridges in the world. The total length of the bridge is 13.5km, spanning 8.4km across the water. (Read about information on Penang at wikipedia.)

Crossing Penang Bridge to Penang island.

Nice scenery along Penang Bridge.

Appreciate the sea view from Penang island. SCROLL left-right for the panoramic view of Penang Bridge.

Next, Penang hawker food!

    Lucky you don’t get traffic jam at the bridge. I assume you cross it during off peak hour. There was once it was so jammed at 7pm I had to take the ferry to Butterworth.

    @Borneo Falcon: Yes yes I am aware of traffic jam at the bridge. We were lucky that the traffic was very smooth. By the way, we crossed the bridge on Sunday afternoon, and Hari Raya on Wed.

  • eunice said on October 16, 2008 11:28 am

    @dede: U mean Assam Laksa is it? I love Assam Laksa!

    @JH: Okay =)

  • dede said on October 16, 2008 2:35 pm

    Asam Laksa, probably? some kind of soup which milk or coconut as base. Usually served with some mee noodles or bee hoon, some tofu and seafood or chicken with prawns and garnish with coriander leaves. if i am not wrong…heheeeeee..

  • dede said on October 16, 2008 2:36 pm

    i means coconut milk as a soup base

  • eunice said on October 16, 2008 2:43 pm

    @dede: Are you referring to Nonya laksa? I know what you mean, don’t think is Assam Laksa cos it has no coconut milk. But I never heard of Penang curry laksa before leh. I thought curry and laksa are two different dishes. Correct me if I am wrong.

  • dede said on October 16, 2008 3:01 pm

    yep,…i guess so. ya ya i remember. its nyonya laksa, Penang curry laksa maybe just name only. my friend owned the “NYONYA”restaurant, that why we often to go there for a dine.

  • Sam said on October 16, 2008 3:44 pm
