Penang Here We come!

It was 'blue skies and everything nice' when we started our journey from Ipoh to Penang.
The journey of 159km will take us about 2 hrs.

We are travelling along the 800m long Menora Tunnel near Jelapang. It was the longest highway tunnel in Malaysia when it was completed.

While hubby was busy driving on the road, we got to enjoy the scenic views along the expressway. When he got tired and stiff, our DDS (darling daughter and son) provided some relief with their shoulder and neck massages. But actually, most of the time, they were fast asleep!

We are crossing the Perak River along the 300m long Sultan Azlan Shah Bridge. This is the longest bridge on the PLUS highway.

Crossing the Perak River.

Our very own Hutan Hujan Khatulistiwa or Tropical Equatorial Rainforest. Here we are 5 km from Kuala Kangsar town, the royal town of Perak state.

All photos are taken from a moving car by the co-pilot who helped in the navigation.

  1. Enjoy the holidays and all the makan2...we did thought of going to Penang :)

  2. I'm usually the navigator too. Do you ask the driver to slow down sometimes so that you can get a good photo??

    You might like to see snow on my blogs, but I'm enjoying seeing sun on yours!

  3. Small Kucing, yes, definitely makan again in Penang.

    Kate, yay, yay, makan minum and makan angin again.

    Linda, oh no, it is quite difficult for the driver to slow down when travelling on the expressway.

  4. I don't think that was the tunnel we went through on our way from Penang to Cameron and back...

  5. Situapui, I think your good friend must be very familiar with the roads and you had taken a toll-free/toll reduced route.

  6. we went to Penang twice, onr up from Singapore, another down after going to the East Coast. I like penang.

  7. It's so green - those mountains certainly look inviting!

  8. hope you are a foodie, enjoy penang. and have a blesses new year ahead.


Yay, I have comments!
