The Penang Ferry

Dating back to the 1920s, the Penang ferry service is the oldest in Malaysia. With vessels named after the nation's many beautiful islands such as Pulau Pinang, Pulau Payar, and Pulau Angsa, the service ferries passengers and vehicles on a 15-minute ride across the Penang Strait, linking Georgetown on the Island (Pengkalan Raja Tun Uda) and Butterworth on the mainland (Pengkalan Sultan Abdul Halim)
