Where to stay in Balik Pulau

About Balik Pulau

Renowned for growing some of Penang’s most well-known agricultural products, Balik Pulau is surrounded by green rice paddies and orchards. Nutmegs, cloves and durians are all cultivated in this attractive town, and its laid-back atmosphere provides a welcome escape from the bustle of Georgetown.

Things to do in Balik Pulau

Time your visit for the durian harvest between May and August when these distinct smelling fruits are at their most mouthwatering, with varieties ranging in flavour from sweet to bitter. You can sample nutmeg fresh from the farms where they are grown or transformed into delicious juices.

Balik Pulau is also famed for its locally-fermented belacan, a strong shrimp paste that is used to create delicious laksa noodle dishes. Visit the Belacan Factory to see how it is made, then sample spicy laksa janggus made using cashew nuts.

Want a dose of local culture? Visit the 19th-century Chinese temple of Xuan Wu or take a stroll to the tiny fishing village of Pulau Betong. You can also spend a night in a traditional longhouse as part of the Kampung Sungai Korok homestay initiative.

The rice paddies that sprawl to the west of town are the last remaining on Penang Island, an idyllic spot to go hiking for the day. Adventurous travellers can tackle the two-hour trek from Balik Pulau to the Air Itam Reservoir, which leads along the densely forested mountain slopes.

Getting around Balik Pulau

Public buses connect Balik Pulau with Georgetown and other destinations across Penang Island, with the 19th-century Kek Lok Si Temple easily visited as part of a day trip from the capital. Hiring a bicycle is a great way to explore the town and its sights, although the surrounding terrain is hilly.
