Batu Feringgi was said trace the name back early days when locals saw foreigners (probably Portuguese) landed here and since given such name Feringgi (foreigners). There's a hotel Feringgi Beach here and the beach somehow given an exotic name Miami Beach. Photo on top is Miami Beach taken by me. A mobile vendor selling all kinds of snacks, drinks, foods, etc. The Miami Beach is right here but you can't see with big pine trees there. After the recent Tsunami, not far from here built a temporary victim village, while further up along the road is the bustling nightlife beach where all the big hotels located, big restaurants and especially so many worldwide tourists.
Nowadays in the Batu Feringgi's jampacked tourists area, you can notice an obvious cultural diversity especially European women in swimsuit while sitting beside them saw numerous Middle-East women in full black robe (Hijab if not mistaken). Besides Europeans and Arabians, Japanese, Koreans, Chinese, South Americans, Africans, etc, all gathered around here especially at night from 7pm till 12pm.
Batu Feringgi is not about backpackers, is more for family travels, more towards 5 star hotels, etc. But at night, the street bazaar can be a good place for all low budget and luxury. Chulia street is for low budget, Batu Feringgi for luxury, tourists can see the different and choose to stay where they want, very simple.
Another and another restaurants and another restaurants. You just don't worry about eating when you come to Penang... more travel advice
