This time I was on a Ferri ship connecting the opposite handler (Butterworth) with Pinang Island (Georgestown). Before there was a Penang toll bridge, transportation between Pinang Island and the mainland was only served by the ferry I was traveling to. It is impossible to imagine how crowded the ferry was before 1985. But after 1985 the users of these ferries were minimal because there was already a bridge connecting the community to cross the island. Penang Bridge (the first penang bridge) is a two-lane expressway linking Bayan Lepas on Pulau Pinang and Seberang Prai in mainland Malaysia. The bridge is also linked to the North-South Highway at Prai and Jelutong Toll Road in Bayan Lepas. Inauguration of this bridge on September 14, 1985. The overall length of this bridge is about 13.5 km, this bridge became one of the longest bridge in Southeast Asia at that time. In 2014 Malaysia makes a second bridge (The Second Penang Bridge) or Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge. Built in 2008-2014 this bridge is the longest bridge in Southeast Asia with a length of 24 kilometers. A happiness can see this bridge. Moreover Penang is known as an industrial city, as well as a tourist city. Reportedly there are 20,000 thousand workers from Indonesia who make a living here.
