This is our “iconic” international airport at Pulau Pinang “Darul Banjir”. Let’s clear more hills, build and widen more roads, and pave paradise.
Let’s say they go ahead with that expensive RM8bn elevated LRT from the airport to George Town. Just think… passengers arriving at the airport can be transported by gondolas to the LRT station.
Imagine, we could turn Penang airport into something like St Mark’s Square at the Las Vegas Venetian Hotel and Casino, like this:
(That blue sky in the video is artificial. The whole set is indoors. Likewise, we can create a haze-free blue sky inside Penang airport.)
Then, while cruising in the elevated LRT heading to Komtar, (assuming the LRT can still move in the floods), passengers can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the panoramic
Pearl of the Orient Venice of the East without getting their feet wet.
Just think how many more tourists will flock to Penang.
