Batu Ferringhi Review

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.

Batu Ferringhi Nightlife

The nightlife in Batu Ferringhi is centered on its 'Pasar Malam' or night market. Open from dusk until late, often past midnight, the night market is a sidewalk bazaar of makeshift stalls operated by local traders, selling an assortment of goods ranging from souvenirs to fake goods.

Besides the night market, there are also a few pubs and restaurants scattered around Batu Ferringhi, inside hotels and along the streets.

Batu Ferringhi Shopping

When people mention Batu Ferringhi, two things come to mind: beach & night market. The Batu Ferringhi night market, otherwise known as the sidewalk bazaar, proves to be one of the area’s major pulls.

The Batu Ferringhi night market’s reputation is so legendary that some have been known to come here on a regular basis solely for the night market.

Batu Ferringhi Activities

Batu Ferringhi is famed for its beaches. Acres and acres of smooth, sandy beaches along its coastline provide the perfect avenue for a variety of beach sports and water sports activities, with a few companies along its length offering such facilities.

Foot reflexology and fish spa centres are also aplenty here, with many hotels and resorts along Jalan Batu Ferringhi offering foot massage services. The contrasting beaches of neighbouring Teluk Bahang are popular spots for snorkeling.
