Sungai Pinang (or simply translated as Pinang River) is a large river that flows from the western side of Penang island. The red Sungai Pinang steel bridge was completed in 2008 to replace the old one and easily stands out as a small landmark in the area. The Sungai Pinang fishing boat wharf is also located nearby the bridge.
