Cycle around the idyllic countryside of Balik Pulau for the best way to discover the charms of Penang up close.
Away from Balik Pulau town, there is a labyrinth of minor roads, pathways and alleys. Sprinkled around it are paddy fields, a fruit orchard, plantation, mangroves, fishing village and dozens of traditional villages, or "kampung". Exploring the town by bicycle is a great way to seek out the Balik Pulau hideaways and experience the Malaysian countryside at a personal level.
You will be guided by a local expert from the 1st and only Penang Countryside Tour. Cycling tours depart every afternoon, as well as on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
