Penang Hill 槟城升旗山

Penang Hill, one of the place that represented Penang since ages ago... and also well known with Cable Car... but recently there is some changes at here... which they implemented with 2 new Cable cars which can carry more passengers and with more faster speed to reach the peak of the Hill....
Here it is the newly implemented Cable Cars... the replacement which I personally thought is not a smart choice after all due to this no longer able to let the visitors to enjoy the traditional Cable car...After I visited Penang Hill this time, I felt too disappointed.

 They even changed the Ticket... It looks too commercial to me... I still feel that they should remain the traditional way.

Here is one of the Cable car they used during the older days... but now they just place there for display and photo shooting only... It really such a waste...They should try to maintain and remain it in working condition.
The scenery view from the Peak...but it was not a good day... It was too hazy to have a clear shot... but still hope you can see the most iconic Malaysia's construction, the Penang Bridge...It is the Asian Longest Bridge ever built...
