Welcome to Batu Feringghi (foreigners’ jaunt), a liltingly long stretch of coastline about 5 km from Penang National Park. Glitzy high rises brush cost vibes against plush resorts, and rustic cafés and bustling shops nestle in the nooks and crannies of this very hip and happening corner of the city. Penang is like a picture book and this is never more exemplified than at this very spot.
Remember to hit the bistros early on in the evening during happy hours, as the crowds begin building up and continue late into the night, and you might just miss being a part of it all…
Remember to check out the interesting night market and do NOT hesitate to bargain. You are NEVER too demanding!
And also remember to awaken languidly the next morning and catch the breakfast of your choice, from budget comfort food to McD’s to artisanal family owned restaurants.
