    Hotspot in Batu Ferringhi


    One of Penang’s most popular destinations (in fact, it’s the second most popular destination after Georgetown), Batu Ferringhi consists of a long stretch of soft, white sandy beach along a winding road named Jalan Batu Ferringhi, filled with a host of accommodation and dining options. Its night market is quite legendary, while its waters are popular spots for a range of water sports activities such as parasailing and windsurfing.

    Taking its name from the Portuguese word for ‘Foreigners’ Rock’, Batu Ferringhi's appeal remains unchanged throughout the years, continuing to draw in huge crowds without fail each year.

  • Batu Ferringhi doesn’t really have any attraction within its vicinity aside from the beach and the night market, but plenty can be found in the neighbouring Teluk Bahang.

    Just a short ride away from Batu Ferringhi, the attractions in Teluk Bahang are located close to one another and are mostly nature-based. Attractions such as Penang’s Cultural Centre, Batik Factory and Yahong Art Gallery bring visitors closer to the island’s culture. Read More...
