Penang Ferry Ride

Now a day a trip on the Penang Ferry is not a common occurrence as most prefer to use the Penang Bridge. On this fine day with time at hand, I decided to take the ferry over, from Penang to Butterworth, due to my destination which was near the ferry terminal at Butterworth.
A Penang Ferry
The Penang Ferry, operates between George Town, The Main City which is located on the Island and Butterworth which is located on the Main Land. As far as I know the Penang Ferry is a unique vehicle.

As noted in Wikipedia : Penang Ferry Service is the Oldest Ferry Service in Malaysia starting in 1920's.

Note: Komtar, The Tallest Building in Northern Malaysia & In The State.
If you get lost in Penang, Just look for Komtar, that will lead you to City Center.
