Balik Pulau Township

Balik Pulau is one of the oldest township in Penang. It was founded long time ago and I am not sure with the history there. Last time, Balik Pulau people used to say it was very very far from town and even I live at Bayan Lepas, my grandma also said that Balik Pulau is far! But since now the transportation was improved, I feel that Balik Pulau is not far from my house anymore.
I went to Balik Pulau recently by the bus 401 for FREE! Why FREE because I had subscribed the Rapid Bus prepaid card for RM35/month. It's a worth one and you can travel unlimited in the Penang Island. There are Balik Pulau New Town which near the Balik Pulau Rapid Bus Terminal. 
At Balik Pulau there are two chinese schools, one is Chong Teik Primary School and another is Sacret Heart High School. Both schools are quite near and just need to walk around 5 minutes can reach each other. Chong Teik Primary School is quite large and it's a standard size for primary students, good enough to have various activities there! Whereas for Sacred Heart is a bit small if for secondary school, the space is not really sufficient for those students!
There are Balik Pulau old town, it's only a few distance away from the Bus Terminal. I walked there and search for the famous Laksa, but it was too bad the business had ended. So end up walked around the old town and snapped some photos.
I was walking around the old town of Balik Pulau. The special one at there was the car park is at the middle of the road and it seems to be created a virtual road divider. This type of road arrangement is some sort similar like Ipoh Old Town.
When you first arrived at Balik Pulau Old Town, you will see a pretty small roundabout before you enter to the Balik Pulau new township. Turn left you can go Sungai Pinang, a place which under the district of Balik Pulau. While you straight forward can go to Balik Pulau new township or the way back to Air Itam and also go to Pondok Upeh. Balik Pulau is not a hill side, it is just like a valley which you need to travel before you can reach there! 

Balik Pulau is famous of Laksa, so do you like Laksa? Posted by GenYong 30.05.2012
