Here are some moments from our rather short outing into the second smallest Malaysian state by land mass – Penang. The Penang island is connected to mainland Malaysia by two really long sea bridges, the first of which is called The Penang Bridge. The Penang bridge is 13.5 kms long and is the second-largest bridge in Malaysia.
Up until 2014, it was the only connection between Mainland Malaysia and Penang Island. Then in 2014, came the Second Penang Bridge or the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge. This is the longest bridge in Malaysia and also entire South-East Asia. The length of this bridge is 24 kms, out of which over 16.9 kms is over the sea. Both these bridges are toll roads and you can expect very heavy traffic on both the bridges at all times during the day.
George Town is the capital of Penang State and you can expect a lot of tourists visiting the island particularly during the weekends. The oldest part of the George Town City is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. As per Wikipedia, George Town is home to the largest collection of pre-war buildings in Southeast Asia.
Also, we had the second last rider change on this ride here when Pratiksha Das took over the keys of our Dominar from Shahnawaz Karim who had ridden with us all the way from Thailand into Malaysia.
