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.

Penang Travel - The fishing boat on the side of the surname bridge sings late. The surname bridge is not just a bridge. It is a fishing village on the shore of this sea. The biggest feeling of coming to the surname bridge is like coming to the Tai O fishing village in Hong Kong.
The famous "Shuqiao" has small crafts in it. It feels like everything is exported from China and then changed to Penang style. (The things they sell personally feel that there is no special feature, and the quality is not bad, I will not be embarrassed when I lose the ground.)
I have not been to Tai O fishing village, I think there is no special feature here, that is, ordinary Just a fishing village, then look at its fishing boat singing late?
