"Panaromic Views of Balik Pulau" Top 5 Page for this destination City Tours & Views Tip by SLLiew

City Tours & Views, Penang: 7 reviews and 11 photos

When going round Penang Island, you will see panaromic views of Balik Pulau (Balik=Behind, Pulau=Island, in Malay) and so literally the other side of Penang Island. You will see greenery and agriculture instead of factories and architecture of the George Town side of Penang Island.

Most tourists will take a quick photo of the view. It is enjoyable if you can drive downhill and go and visit the small villages of rice and fruit farmers and fishermen of the Balik Pulau, Pulau Betong, Genting and Pantai Acheh.
