MALACCA: The state has a great potential to be an international sea port by 2025 with fiscal commitment from Guangdong, China.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron said Guangdong provincial government was interested to construct harbour facilities to turn Malacca into a top nautical hub in this region on par with Singapore.

“We are talking about a huge investment by the Chinese and once materialised, Malacca will be recognised as the largest port in this region,” he said here yesterday.

Besides the port, Idris said Guangdong was looking at unveiling another airport here as a catalyst to tourism and industrial development in Malacca.

Guangdong governor Zhu Xiaodan, he added, had also expressed interest during his working visit to Malacca on Saturday in focusing on man-made Pulau Melaka’s potential as a tourist port project as well as to cater to the needs of the maritime industry.

“Zhu is looking at the long-term, progressive development here as the state has potential as new growth area for Asean,” he said.

Idris also revealed that Zhu toured the Melaka Gateway residential and commercial property project in Pulau Melaka during his visit.

“Zhu is also passionate about bringing our bilateral ties to greater heights as well as being enthusiastic about a win-win strategy for both governments,” he said.

The state government, said Idris, had created a new portfolio known as International Trade helmed by State Transport and Project Rehabilitation Committee chairman Datuk Lim Ban Hong.

How to travel by Bus from Melaka to Penang

It is really amusing as we discover the ancient sites in Melaka such that during the tour we are unable to realize the tiredness of viewing the ancient sights of Melaka. Penang is also one of the state of Malaysia just like Melaka; after exploring Melaka being in Malaysia we must travel to visit Penang as well, which is only located at the distance of 510 km or 315 miles away from Melaka.

The common aspect between Melaka and Penang is that, Georgetown, the capital of Penang Melaka are both UNESCO world heritage sites, so there are plenty of heritage sites to explore in Penang as well.

You will find a major number of population in the rural area in Penang i.e. Balik Pulau and Telok Kumbar and in the lower urban parts are areas like Tanjang Tokong, Kampong Melayu Air Itam and Perak road where cosmopolitan culture is settled like Indians; scattered in Gelugar, Bayan Baru and Tanjong Bunga. In the whole urban area all the Chinese majority dwells; those areas are renowned as Butterworth and Mukit Mertajam.

Bus from Melaka to Penang

To travel from Melaka to Penang by bus is certainly economical and enjoyable if you really wanted to enjoy the tour by bus from Melaka to Penang in six hours and thirty minutes then you may grab some of the bus services as mentioned under:

  • Billion Stars departs from Melaka Sentral around 8:30am and arrives at two destinations in Penang at Butterworth and Sungai Nibong.
  • There are consecutive two Transnasional bus services that will take you from Melaka Sentral at the time 8:30am 8:30pm and reach in Penang at Butterworth.
  • Cepat Cekap Express departs in two different timings that are 11:30am and 12:15pm from Melaka Sentral and Alor Gajah and both of them reaches in Butterworth.

It is thus remarked as immensely adventurous to travel by bus from Melaka to Penang because the original history of Malaysian Peninsula can only be studied if we come to know in reality by travelling through and observing each and every state of the island being discovered by the major historians.

For instance, the reality of Malaysian Island can be vastly studied by discovering its three major states that are Melaka, Penang and Kuala Lumpur as the settling of Chinese culture, emanation of British, growth of the sultans of Melaka and its independence are certainly observed in the above mentioned states.

In order to take the chance of viewing the adventurous and ancient sites by taking the bus from Melaka to Penang you can also avail direct bus services that are available in Melaka Sentral towards Penang Island. Remember that it is certainly necessary that due to avoid rush of passengers you must come earlier to Melaka Sentral and avail the bus service as per convenience of travelling.

Like Melaka you will come to know that Penang is also the second beautiful ancient Island of Malaysian strait where you fully get equipped with the historic nature of the peninsula such that if you choose to reach in Butterworth you will innumerably find plenty of tourists here.
