The Friendship Bridge
(GPS: 5.83905, 101.89263) is a bridge across Sungai Golok between Malaysia and Thailand. It links Bukit Bunga
in Jeli, Kelantan with Bukit Tal (written Buketa in Thailand) in Weng district, Narathiwat province in Thailand. The bridge is 120 meters long and was completed in 2007. It compliments the existing land crossing at Rantau Panjang
and the ferry crossing at Pengkalan Kubor
The Friendship Bridge was originally called Harmonious Bridge, or Jambatan Muhibah, because it replaces an earlier Jambatan Muhibah which connected Rantau Panjang with Golok which was opened then prime minister Tun Abdul Razak bin Hussein on 21 May, 1973.
The present bridge was renamed Friendship Bridge when current prime minister, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is the son of the late Tun Abdul Razak, officiated the bridge along with his Thai counterpart, Abhisit Vejjajiva. The name Friendship Bridge recalls the name of another bridge, between Thailand and Laos, also known as Friendship Bridge.
As you travel along the Grik-Pasir Puteh Road (Route 4), look for the junction to the Friendship Bridge on the west side of the road between Bukit Nangka and Bukit Bunga in Jeli district.
