Penang to have 30km Scenic Trail

On: Wednesday, May 20, 2009

If all goes to plan, Penangites will soon get to enjoy a 30km scenic trail stretching from Batu Maung all the way to Teluk Bahang. The trail will pass through the sandy beaches of Batu Ferringhi, Tanjung Bunga and to the popular tourist spot of Gurney Drive. Then it will extend to Georgetown pass its colonial and heritage buildings before ending in Batu Maung via the Jelutong coastal highway and Queensbay Mall. The concept is similar to the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles and Pier 39 in San Francisco where there are attractions along the trail and has become a tourist magnet. It will surely benefit the tourism industry and ultimately the residents of Penang. Hopefully it will materialize soon.

Wow... This is a great idea for runners too. Penang will have additional spot for marathon and other run. Moreover, a great spot for runners to train. :-) I strongly support this.

Ya, hopefully pedestrians and stall vendors will be smart enough not to block the path.

Yes. Agreed. Too many smart stall vendors around Penang Island like nobody business simply blocks peoples way.

The government should enforce the regulations and do it right.
