No, this is not an Internet hoax. There is a real, 2.3-km, cable-suspended, concrete, bridge just for your angling pleasure. The US$40-million Pulau Bunting Bridge in Kedah, northern Malaysia, links the mainland to an uninhabited island without any industry. The fishing and photography haven, however, comes without any public toilets. (This Pulau Bunting is not to be confused with Pulau Dayang Bunting of Langkawi islands, also part of Kedah.)

Pulau Bunting Bridge is a bridge that connects Pulau Bunting to mainland Yan, Kedah state, Malaysia.It was constructed between 2002 and 2005. The bridge remains underused and has become a white elephant project. It has been widely criticised for the facts that it had served no purpose of linking to an unpopulated island which incurred a project cost of RM 120 million. Disenchantment of the locals remains unknown to the rest of the country or the world.

Direction: The idea is get off Gurun expressway exit, go north on old Highway 1, pass Guar Cempedak, look for Kampung Batu 17 and turn left on Jalan Sedeka towards the sea.
In steps, to go to Pulau Bunting:
- from the Expressway, get off the Gurun exit and go through Gurun town.
- Make some north and west turns to find the old Highway 1 towards Alor Setar.
- Pass Kampong Guar Cempedak, 2-3km, pass Sungai Padang Terap,
- Find Kampong Batu 17's T-junction and turn left into the tree-lined Jalan Sedeka (like the singer Neil Sedeka).
- Go west towards the sea for 7-8 km (straight across a 4-way junction, the road become Jalan Batu 17).
- When you hit a dirt road near the sea, turn right for 1km.
- That's it! The bridge is hidden on your left.
