Batu Feringgi is second only to Georgetown in terms of Penang tourism. The district’s name translates as ‘Foreigner’s Rock’, and it’s home to one of the densest blocks of development in Penang. The district is popular for its white-sand beach fringed with al fresco restaurants and waterfront hotels.
While the district center is laden with tourist infrastructure, several nature-based attractions are in the area. Tropical Spice Garden and the Butterfly Farm are nice places to stroll for an hour, but the real hiking is in Penang National Park (Taman Rimba Teluk Bahang).
The emphasis in Batu Feringgi is on hospitality and tourism rather than historical sightseeing or cultural experience. Restaurants specialize in international fare or in Westernized versions of Malaysian cuisine. Anyone with a taste for authentic, local food can still find food hawker stalls in the area.
Accommodation in Batu Feringgi is competitively priced due to high hotel supply. Backpackers have a great selection, including a few ocean-facing bungalows. There are just as many resorts and spas on the beach with luxury offerings, so tourists on any budget find suitable rooms here.
The waterfront row turns into a popular pedestrian market every evening – famous throughout Southeast Asia for cheap replica goods, clothes and local handicrafts. Called ‘Pasar Malam’, the market also has a few pubs and clubs that stay open late. Otherwise, the best places to drink and dance are attached to major hotels.
