    One of the best places to be at night especially if you're cruising here through the Butterworth Outer Ring Road. Take a look at the beautiful lights from the port.

    Nostalgic place for me as I grew up in Penang.Suitable for travellers/dwellers commuting to Penang Island without time constraint.Long queues to hop onto ferry.
