San Francisco: The Alcatraz Island.

If you've watched 'The Rock' (a movie) before, you'll for sure know about Alcatraz Island, the former federal prison to some of the toughest crime in the country. These days, no longer a federal prison, this island is one of the most-visited tourism spot in San Francisco.

The Alcatraz Island.

Another view from the pier.

We were on a cruise to enjoy the view of San Francisco as well as the Golden Gate Bridge. On the journey back to the pier, we managed to have a closer look to the Alcatraz Island. You could actually go on a special tour whereby you can visit the entire Alcatraz Island. Yes, that would include the access to the jail, the facilities, etc. But we weren't too fancy about the entire place, so we left it out of our plan.

Although abandoned, this place is always full with visitors.

All the travellers on the cruise were trying to capture a few shots of the Alcatraz.

Very formidable looking to me.

I bet guys would like to visit this place, eh?

Alcatraz always give me creep. But I've often been fascinated by how this one prisoner actually managed to escape from the prison and swims back to SF. I wonder how he keeps himself warm while swimming in the cold, freezing water.
