Penang Bridge, Penang
Favorite thing: This photo was taken on top of Bukit Jambu Hill, Penang. From far as u can see is the penang bridge which u can travel by express bus or drive in penang island from main land. Penang Bridge at 13.5 km long is the longest bridge in Asia. A toll of RM7 is collected at the Penang Bridge from all cars driving from the mainland.
Favorite thing: The contruction of 2nd Penang Bridge is targeted to complete in November 2013. In December 2012, I took the pictures of 2nd Penang Bridge on my flight from Penang to Singapore. It is beautiful. The centre part of the bridge was not joined yet at that time.
The 2nd Penang Bridge opened for vehicles since 1 March 2014 started to collect toll from 1 April 2014. For a sedan car, the toll is RM8.50, a rate RM 1.50 higher than the 1st bridge.
When driving through the bridge at night, I found the toll house is beautiful with its shape is clearly seen from apart when approahing it. I took a few of its picture while driving thru.
On day, I might stop here to take more pictures, some of them could be sunrise and sunset as the bridge is crossing east and west, thus I have to find a good location.
Favorite thing: The Penang Bridge connects the island of Penang to the mainland part of Malaysia... It is 13.5 kms long and was opened in 1988.
