Cycling & Explore <b>Balik Pulau</b>, The Other Side Of Penang | Nick <b>...</b>

Posted: 25 Feb 2012 01:53 AM PST

Cycling At Balik Pulau, The Other Side Of Penang – Last Monday, I went to the other side of Penang Island, a more rural part of Penang, a more nature part, somewhere more relax, more greens and a totally different side of the urban developed George Town – Balik Pulau. Balik Pulau also means back of Island in Malay.

It's a small town at the back of the island, with the presence of villages, padi field and many fruit and vegetable farms. I've read online that there's bicycle rental service in Balik Pulau that allows you to rent a bike to explore Balik Pulau at the same time exercise some reflexes of the feet through cycling.

I called up the person in-charged Eddie who operates the bicycle rental service and meet him up in Balik Pulau. He brought 3 bikes, one for himself, and two for me and Arron. Besides renting the bike, Eddie himself was our guide around Balik Pulau that day. I didn't think we would have a guide, I though we would be given a map and follow the trail. But then having a guide is better than following a map, Eddie was very friendly to guide us along the way, and introduced some cool places in Balik Pulau.

Our biking trail was designed by Eddie himself and the whole trip took about 2.5 hours through 20km of journey. We started about 5pm and ended at 7.30pm. Normally it's 15km only but he told us that we were fast and he brought us to explore more.

Being in Balik Pulau doesn't felt like being in Penang anymore because of the rural village and the beauty of nature. Our biking trail went through Malay village, Chinese Kampung Baru, river streams, padi fields, fruit farms, vegetable farms, fishing village, Malay's cemetery and a little beach, as well as some major road in Balik Pulau.

It's fun, it's a good exercise, but sitting too long on the bicycle makes my ass hurts. After all, Arron and I enjoyed the cycling trip, only that we missed out the Hokkien Mee and Laksa alongside Kuala Jalan Baru which only available during the weekend.

Well, the Bike Trail signage are actually set up by the government, though Eddie doesn't recommend following the signage as the trail is long and doesn't has much thing to see.


Eddie introducing a Chinese temple at Kampung Jalan Bharu.


He said that if you sees a Chinese temple presence, it means that the whole area is a Chinese populated village. Normally temple is set up at the entry point of the village as well the end point, which the Chinese god will protect the people.

Typical Chinese village house.


A rice paddy field at Balik Pulau, unfortunately, those paddy has been harvested and resulted a not-pretty paddy field scene.


It's me.


Luckily the weather was pretty nice that afternoon. Google Weather did actually reported that 70% chance of storm, but there's no rain.

Yes, this is Penang Island, doesn't look like Penang right? It's the other side of Penang, the more nature side.

Awas = Beware.


Our rides.


At the river mouth of Sungai Burong, where here you can get a great shot of Sunset. Unfortunately, we were still early at that time.


Looking at far, it's Pulau Betong, a fishing village and at there you can find Pasir Panjang beach.


An abandoned house that looks creepy.


Locals playing sepak takraw.

I've heard that Nibong Tebal has bicycle for rental for cycling trip too, guess it'll my next destination. Cycling is fun and healthy way to explore places like this.

If you plan to go cycle at Balik Pulau, do give Eddie a call to book your bike and make appointment. He told me that there will be a Explore Balik Pulau Visitor Centre opening somewhere around May 2012 at Air Putih.

Prestige III in <b>Balik Pulau</b> to Complete with Park

PLB Engineering Berhad is launching, via its subsidiary PLB Land Sdn Berhad, a RM270mil mixed-development project on a 20.2ha site in Balik Pulau, Penang.

It is called Prestige III Central Park City and the project will commence in the second quarter of 2012.

Group executive chairman Datuk Ong Choo Hoon (pic) told a press conference that the project comprised 919 units — 322 single and double-storey terrace homes, 40 double-storey semi-detached houses, 57 double-storey shop offices, and 500 medium and low medium-cost apartments.

"The project, comprising three phases, will be completed in 2016.

"The first phase should be completed in 2014.

"We will kick off the project in April or May with the launch of 242 units," he said.

The prices of the single-storey terrace and double-storey terrace houses are RM360,000 and RM460,000 respectively.

The double-storey semi-detached houses cost RM600,000.

The highlight of the project is a 1.2ha park for the residents to enjoy the greenery, the river and streams.

"The project has received overwhelming response," Ong said.

He said the group would also launch 98 medium-cost apartments on a site larger than one acre in Sungai Nibong this year.

"The project is planned according to the new density guidelines of the state government which allows for 87 units per acre. Under the new ruling, 15% of the units have to be priced between RM200,000 and RM300,000," he said.

"We are also targeting to launch a RM1bil township project in Paya Terubong on a 28.3ha site in two years," he said.

The group is also planning a RM45mil low density medium-cost apartment project in Teluk Kumbar later this year.

"We have also submitted plans for light industry factories in Juru Auto City and Mak Mandin.

"The estimated sales revenue for these projects is around RM115mil," he said. – Star Property
