By Hani - Apr 02, 2019 (Last Updated Apr 15, 2019)

If you are planning for a trip to Penang just to unwind and relax from the hustle and bustle in the city, let's explore the slower pace of Penang Island and get closer to untouched nature, Balik Pulau. Balik Pulau is more laid back and relaxed part of the island as compared to the jam packed Georgetown. Since we are at it, check out 12 affordable homestays in Balik Pulau, Penang in the later part of this article.


Balik Pulau as it literally translates as "the back of the island" is a southwest part of the island, predominantly blanketed by lush greenery, sheaths of paddy fields and rolling hills - just the perfect ingredients for a getaway from the city life. Balik Pulau is well-known for its durian. But that's not all. Balik Pulau has so much to offer other than durians. 


You can take your time and explore the town centre and its nearby landmarks. The town is packed with heritage buildings selling ferment fruits, local cakes, spices and dry goods. If you're looking for an Instagrammable spot, check out the massive wall murals by Julia Volchkova. There are spiritual sanctuaries too around the town such as Masjid Daerah, the recently revamped Sri Manalmedu Muthu Mariamman Temple, Xuan Wu Chinese Temple, St. George's School and Church of the Holy Name of Jesus.


Rent a bike and greeted by a lush green paddy field. Stop by Saanen Dairy Goat Farm and make new farm friends. You can feed them and get exposed from milking to distribution process. If goats aren't your thing, then check out Countryside Stables Penang where you can enjoy horse and pony riding.


Cool yourself in Pasir Panjang Beach, which is clearly off the beaten path as tourists are almost non-existent, allowing you to swim in the pristine water, chase little crabs and collect shells on the wite sand and let loose with your friends and families over a picnic with minimal distractions.
