    Idea is good, but hope the maintanence is good as “eco-friendly”. Teluk Bahang is reserved forest, perhaps the development would not damage the eco life in this peacefull land especially don’t bring-in human “rubbishes” into this zon.

    Eco Theme Park? End up will like Bukit Merah that kind of park, can’t maintain….People only visit once and never come again…..Build one Disneyland at Seberang Perai or Bukit Mertajam i will put a thumb up for Penang! Or build a theme park on Jerejak Island or how about make it a Disney Island theme park? Johor will build 3 theme parks on their Iskandar Project and they will get one soon next year for Legoland. Penang? Wait long long la….

    Is good for Penang Island to start up the 1st ever Eco Theme Park, Congratulation and Keep It Up.

    I agree with “ECONOMIC CRISIS” mention People Only Visit Once BUT there are more people from foreigner as well as domestic residents.

    The different between Johor and Penang is One is Isolated Island (Nature of Seaview and Forest) and another is Mainland (Big pieces of cake and a lot of room to grow) . So, in term of economy, scarcity in land will push the cost of building even higher, they can’t afford to waste any single square feet in Penang Island.

    Penang is following the footstep of Singapore as well as Hong Kong, there maybe overprice scenario but what surprise is many foreigner perceive it as undervalue in term of Property Price and Currency. So…………. That is still a lot of Mega Project launching in Penang.

    There is a plan to construct a new road connecting Tg Bunga to Teluk Bahang. If I am not mistaken, this road would start from the old Tg Bunga road, link to the Permai/TAR college site, then cut the hill all the way connecting to Teluk Bahang. Quite an agressive plan if you look at it from google map, I wonder how they gonna make the connection from Permai to Teluk Bahang to happen, all covered with hills basically.

    It wud definitely make Penang a must destination among the tourists. With the Penang 2nd bridge, traffic to the island wud be smoother. The airport is being upgraded and Penang wud be a better place to visit for vacation.

    My concern wud be the heavy traffic to reach this theme park. Cant imagine how the traffic has to crawl along the Batu Ferringhi winding roads. What wud happen when there’s an accident or during heavy downpour.

    Special boating services for the tourists shud be provided at reasonable price and of course, safety of passengers shud be a priority. The BF roads shud be upgraded and better lighted at night. Traffic control during peak season shud be in place during peak season.

    The new road as planned shud be realised early. Make sure, anything that is done shud reflect world class or we may lose out to Singapore/Thailand as tourist destination.

    November 17th, 2011 at 02:01 | #11

    why do we need to compare PG wt SG? Why do we need PG to become heavily developed like another SG?

    tourists are attracted to PG for the relative availability of nature and beaches, and heritage buildings. trying too hard to become another Singapore will drive tourists away, and we will certainly lose out in any competition against Singapore to mimic them, as they have more financial resources and name.

    Best we capitalize on preserving our nature and heritage which is what draws tourists in, and what Singapore doesn’t have. Blue ocean strategy…

    ps: its only a 2 lane road for the next 15km from tanjong bungah to telok bahang. not feasible to build a road inland as there are too many hills and steep slopes. enjoy the jam

    “Why do we need to compare PG wt SG?” No comparison no improvement.
    A country develops when it progresses.

    Yes,do not compare M’sia to S’pore. If you want to, M’sia is no where
    compare to S’pore. By the way “Eco Theme Park” with only jungle,
    water and animals also cheaper to realise.

    singapore?? what can you get there?

    1) Penang food better than Singapore’s

    2) Penang attraction better than Singapore’s

    3) Penang beach is better than Singapore’s

    4) Mentality of Penangites is better than Singapore’s (Kiasu)

    5) Talents come from Penang (Lee Chong Wei and etc) and Singapore mostly import from “Ang Moh” Country and claim themselves good

    6) Friendly environment as we can see Penangites brings their family(uncle auntie) to hang around, shopping during weekends , while singaporean just keep their parents in old folks home.

    Please think before you speak, by 2020, Penang will complete another mega project to solve the traffic issue

    tertiary education,airport facilities,economy, transportation, cleanliness
    and corruptions etc.?

    Tourists attractions or destination, How many tourists “Lee Chong Wei”
    brought in ? How many tourists came to Penang because of better food ?
    How many foreign tourists came to Penang dirty beach ?
    The mentality of Penangites brought in how many tourists ?

    Buyer, Penang is just a state, Singapore is a city and also a country, are you comparing a terrace and a condo? If Penang is better than Singapore ENTIRELY, then what else did Singapore left?

    The point that I pointed out is the advantage which Singapore is nothing better than us (Penagites).
    You’re not able to pin point any facts as well too.
    I bet you’ll only be able to get a store-room sized apartment in Singapore, if you have Singapore friends, do Invite them to my house’s toilet which is 700 sq ft = as big as their studio / house. I’ll get their whole family to stay in my toilet.

    Ok lah, Penang better, I also live in Penang. Penang also has many,

    Read and understood ‘All’ comments first but if your “English” is poor
    you can say anything and everything without knowing your mistakes.

    “Malaysia owns the biggest airport in the world”where did you get this
    info ? Just a few hours flight only, have you heard of a place call
    “HONG KONG”? Go and see for yourself is your KLIA is bigger than
    Hong Kong Airport ?

    May be you can also go to S’pore which is nearer to have a look.Do you
    know how big is “Changi Airport” ? Just by common sense, the volume
    of air traffic and passengers it handles will tell how big the airport is.

    What sense and facts do you have ? You can’t even understood what
    you had read ? What do you call your yourself ?

    November 18th, 2011 at 10:26 | #28

    Lets face the fact. Singapore is already a developed country, and Malaysia (of course including Penang in this case) is at least 30years lagging behind in terms of development. From all social aspects, incluidng infrastructure, security, welfare, healthcare, and education system, Malaysia is not anywhere near match to Singapore’s Standard.

    Penang is depending heavily on Manuafcturing and Tourism on the economic perspective, and also promoting the rich in culture (people, foods, buildings etc), and heritage status. However these are what the under-developed country are doing and selling urrently such as vietnam, cambodia, thailand, and Indonesia. Sad and Nothing to proud of, we know where we are and who should we be comparing to, Singapore is definitely not an apple-to-apple comparison.

    We have to accept the facts not all people are keen in Malaysia to make this a developed country like singapore, neither involved nor interested to make this happen. Go and talk to those living around kampung, they just want to have a peaceful life, with continuous support and supply given from government, thats the primary. The rest of factors such as who rule the country, corruption, transparency, effeiciency, are just secondary or none in the priority list. These people form the majority of population in the country.

    The problem is the ruling party BN has succeeded in lying to the people
    especially rural folks, how great this country and great infrastructures
    M’sia has.

    If you take note all projects which they intend to do will be 5 to 10 years
    later but they will start saying it now and when completed,it will be another
    5 years late.

    One good example is the North-South highway.By the time it was completed,
    not able to cope with the heavy traffic. So are you going to say M’sia has the
    most advance highway ? Is Petronas Twin Towers the tallest building ?

    Are you saying that even though Penang lost to S’pore in every aspects
    in reality,one must say Penang is better than S’pore to qualify to stay
    in Penang ? No wonder M’sia is lagging behind all these years with these
    mindsets.If I say China is bigger than M’sia,do I have to stay in China ?

    November 18th, 2011 at 16:51 | #32

    I share the same perception as buyer. I have been offered a Singaporean Citizen once but I rejected. Reason is clear, yes, singapore does provide a better sense of living and quality of life, but “it is not my HOME”. Malaysia provides the homegrown soil, established strong link of relationship since childhood, the living environment which you love about – the food, the people for example, those are irreplaceble. Not to deny Singapore is a much developed and liveable place as compare to penang, but it is not a place that i should call Home. I spent some of my time in Europe countires such as Germany and switzerland before, these places are comparable to singapore in terms of development, but offered much better quality of life. You get to own a court-yard home, free education life-long, less stress in work, weekend getaway and long holidays. But do i want to stay there, no, I still want to come back to my “Home” malaysia. So why bother to compare Penang with Singapore or anywhere else? Why heck care if the foreigners or tourist interested to come Penang? Lets love our Penang and Malaysia and make it a better place together. Please ask yourselve what can you contribute first.

    Back to this theme park, I think it has all the reasons to be suuecssful, and lets support it. As for the Penang property, I already own a few, and i intended to pass to my children in the future.

    Malaysia = a place where you feels like home, where the passion and happiness are shared within families, elders, and all.

    sg = a place which is “so-called developed” , elders are sent to “a place where old people gathers, with the reason of “busy with work”

    that’s the difference, the culture and the value where real people truly treasure, priceless.

    I am living in Bt Ferringhi, Every PH, Saturday and Sunday the Batu Ferringhi road jam heavily. The Jam are concentrate in 2 area. In front of Boon Siew Bungalow and Miami Beach. Why, because not enough parking and people start to park beside the main road and make it from 2 lane into 1.5 lane. Worst is no traffic police around to help. The jam ussually queue until in front of maybank tanjong bungah and in some worst case. until penang swimming club. With this jam, it now take about 45 min to Batu Ferringhi from Tanjong Bungah instead of 5 minutes.

    I really love to have a Theme Park in Penang, But to built a Theme Park in Teluk Bahang without a new Highway is going to cause a massive jam for people like us living in Batu Ferringhi. Please built the new higway first before you open that new Theme Park.

    Have a heart.

    There is nothing ECO / Environ Friendly about building a theme park in the forest reserve area on a hill slope ok? Furtheremore, there is the teluk bahang dam nearby. I’m a penangite and loved every bit of penang but i think this ECO park idea is a disaster in making. Build an ECO park in the seberang prai level ground area as suggested by “Economic Crisis” would be a better option rather than balding out the hills in penang island further.

    Dear all, to be honest as a penangite I am happy to see the developments in pg for the past 5 years. My properties value increases in the island and mainland. And life is getting more exciting and attractive. Of course we may remain to stay and rest at home.

    Let’s don’t compare a state with a country but there is no harm to learn and benchmark others’ successful projects and strategies. I am looking forward to see the water theme parks in the island, also eager to see the development of southbay at second link as I do invest there too :)

    Also wanna to see the upgraded Pisa which with sky garden if I am not mistakenly. Is it in progress now? I am also excited to know there are more concerts in Penang. As a city we need more colorful life on top of our super yummy food but getting too exp by looking at the serving. One thing we may not realize, they are many Singaporeans visiting Penang lately, other than the developments and food, never forget air asia to convey tourists to pg. the new upgraded pg airport is much impressed than before despite still small. Clean, air conditional with reasonable price is another good afford.

    It is not easy to develop a state without full support from
    Central government and hence i would suggest we all should view all the projects positively. Of course we can voice out our point of view but should not criticize it. If we are smart enough why not we suggest what should be the development instead?

    Fyi, JB hs build 2 free expressway to link the whole islandar. Infrastructure was one of the main keys to make me own my first property in JB. But can Penang state gorv afford to build a expressway timely with limited support?

    Lastly i am looking forward to visit escape this coming cny.

    typical comments coming from an opportunistic capitalist or in other words “the haves” but what about the true penangite, the person on the street, “the have-nots”, those hoping and cringing that those in power come through for them and not just serving those with money and hidden agendas

    Btw I am a penangite but was away for years yet I back to my lovely hometown pg at least twice a year to enjoy. Just to honest, if pg becomes a dead town, how many of us will stay still? Even of we can survive with simple life but can we survive with low saving (never mention those with limited income)? We may be able to survive with simple life but are we going to give our next enervation with simple education and eventually lost their competitive power to others, this could mean those from other cities in Msia… Don’t forget ppls are very mobile and realistic now. We have to face it even we choose to avoid it though.

    To be honest I like Penang not only because of it’s food and people, but also it’s scenery and heritage. We need to maintain these while transforming into a world class city. These will make this city more attractive and unique.

    I like and amazed with what the current state gorvement has been doing for the past 5 years or more and looking forward for more of these great jobs. Btw I remember there was a proposal for monorail or such. In my opinion I don’t think we real ready to have it in our lovey pg yet. Until we hit a mil of population be it in the island or mainland respectively, we are not ready for it. As the traveling cost will be sky high due to under utilization and high running cost. And adequate bus and taxi services is necessary to comprehend it. Now i do see very positive improvement from bus service but still a long way for cab service. Cab fare and no of passenger is a chicken and egg game. Without a reasonable and affordable fare, guess ppls with drive, or ask your family to help, even your fren. Guess this sound very common to most of us. Of course never forget cab cleaniness /condition and drivers with the right attitude is equally important too.

    Let’s work it out together and make own home city a better, nicer, cleaner and more developed city without losing charm of its unique culture and/or heritage. As mentioned very feedback carries its value.

    Cannot compare penang to singapore… do you think penang can really catch up the pace of singapore? Compare penang to singapore, we have the beauty of nature… its up to us to preserve it.. you can have the beauty of technology in times… but you will not regain the beauty of nature after you lost it, unless you build something natural, which I don’t think it can be compared to the real nature. This theme park let us enjoy in nature, which it has been using the building material like woods.. You should be happy that this theme park has been build… if you want a modern theme park, then just go to the place that have it, or BUILD IT YOURSELF, don’t complain so much

    Few months ago there is an accident cause a person died and the theme park have cover the issue with a big amount of compensation fee. As some of the building n equipment are not safe as the company have ignore the safety requirement.. Those who want to go really need to think abt it as its not worth for the risk.

    @Mars

    For those who love the beauty of nature, why live in Penang ? Live
    in mainland far away from B’worth. You can have everything in a theme
    park, its just that this concept is the “CHEAPEST”.Just admit it,we can’t
    do it.

    Hi Truth,

    What about those who appreciate the beauty of the hills and the seas, and yet value the convenience of modern living and the importance of good schools, safe neigbourhood and quality medical care?

    @condomana

    Don’t worry about the sea and hill,we have a mountain range stretching
    from the North to South and a long coastal line. So for those who love
    nature, you can choose where you want.

    Economic Crisis :
    Eco Theme Park? End up will like Bukit Merah that kind of park, can’t maintain….People only visit once and never come again…..Build one Disneyland at Seberang Perai or Bukit Mertajam i will put a thumb up for Penang! Or build a theme park on Jerejak Island or how about make it a Disney Island theme park? Johor will build 3 theme parks on their Iskandar Project and they will get one soon next year for Legoland. Penang? Wait long long la….

    Fren, I’ve been there for twice. It’s awesome and clean and nice and fantastic and excited and we plan for 3rd , 4th, until the theme park completed.

    Truth, I meant you need to appreciate what you have if you are living in Penang. I know the price is not cheap, but just that if you really enjoying in the theme park, the price is worth. Why you want us to look down on the theme park? And why are you asking me to go to butterworth? Please don’t be too much…@Truth
