For most people, day to day chores and work headaches can lead to serious stress build up that can produce feelings of ennui and unhappiness. As such, many have chosen to deal with this stress through peaceful meditation and tai chi exercises. Another great way to manage the negative influences in one's life is by getting away from it all in a beautiful and distant land. For those individuals who would like to explore an exotic locale where they will have plenty of space to practice their tai chi movements, a trip to the Malaysian town of Balik Pulau could be in order.
Located on Penang Island, Balik Pulau is a small town that is famous for its natural and agricultural treasures. The town, which loosely translates to 'the back of the island,' is a popular producing ground for many of the region's most celebrated fruits, particularly durians. Durians are a large, spiked fruit that has fiercely divided many people thanks to its strong odor and taste.
One thing that sets the city apart from most destinations in the area is that it is entirely self-sufficient – producing its own food and water supplies as well as its own dedicated public services including a police force, power station, post office and telecommunications company.
It is also the home to a number of colleges and universities, and a popular launching point for exploration of Penang Island, thanks to its strong selection of roadways. Popular sites for travelers looking to practice their tai chi movements include the calm beaches of Pantai Pasir Panjang to the south and Pantai Kerechut to the north.
