Weld Quay (or Pengkalan Weld) is the eastern coastal road of George Town that stretches from the Penang Port area all the way through the clan jetties to the Prangin Canal area. It is one of the earliest roads built in Penang during the 1800s after a land reclamation was completed at that time. It can be considered the sea transportation hub of Penang where the ferry terminals, and various port facilities are located.
