What people are saying:

In the past, the Chinese came to Penang and lived on the sea. They built bridges and built houses on them. Because people of the same surname lived on the same bridge, it was called the surname bridge. The so-called "bridge" is not a bridge, but a wooden house built on the sea. The surname bridge is like a few small villages and has a strong kampong style.

Additional Information

Introduction

The surname bridge does not refer to a separate bridge, but a general term for many bridges. When the Chinese went to Nanyang in the south, they went to Penang, engaged in trade and fishing, and made a living from the sea. Therefore, they set up bridges and built houses on them to form a unique small village. Because the same surname lives in a bridge, it is called the surname bridge. A hundred years later, these huts still exist, next to the port of Penang, watching the ships come and go, continue to write legends.
