BALIK PULAU CYCLING TOUR
While Balik Pulau may not be as developed as Georgetown and certainly does not exude a similar charm like Batu Ferringhi, it makes up for all this with its peacefulness. Life in the city may get a little too stressful at times, and a nice, peaceful road-trip may be your escape route. This Full Day Balik Pulau Cycling Tour will take you through:
Since Balik Pulau is famous for its fishery and agriculture activities, the best way to set the pacing for the day is to go for a refreshing sightseeing of the paddy fields. Here you will admire the picturesque scene of the vast stretches of paddy fields. It can be a common sight to see locals jogging along the field, so don’t hold back on waving and greeting them, they are likely to reciprocate with their local friendliness. It’s exactly this laid back charm that makes you feel at ease.
There are also a number of small-holder farmers, passionate about the missions of their farms, and open to tourists to explore. Open up your world and gain knowledge on the methods incorporated in vegetable farms to maximize yield while avoiding the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
Within the freshness and the authenticity of Balik Pulau’s ecosystem sits a treasure trove of traditional houses withstanding the test of time, their stories waiting to be heard. This Malay Village embodies an image of rural charm.
There’s also a tiny fishing village where you’ll be greeted by the old-school fishing boats docking the shores, fishermen tending their nets and locals quickly nabbing catch of the day. Besides that, some of the friendly fishermen offer boat rides until the mangrove area and the nearby surrounds.
Mangrove Forest Reserve
This small mangrove forest doesn’t take long to explore, however, it’s still one of those spots you do not want to miss out on as the swamp is full of different species of crabs, something you don’t get to see often anywhere. With wooden walkways built along this mangrove forest, you have a clear direction to navigate without having to take different turns or paths.
As the name speaks for itself, it’s no surprise this farm is home to sweet mangoes. These fresh and juicy fruits are never short of variety, each having their own distinctive taste and smell. Take pleasure sampling some mangoes while enjoying the cool breeze and listening to the rustling of leaves of the Mango Farm, but save some space for a hearty local lunch later.
Depending on your guide, you will get to visit some local factories or stores by a motor coach.
Audi Dream Farm
Tucked away in Sungai Rusa, Balik Pulau, lies Audi Dream Farm. This lovely farm gives you a simple escape from the city and high rise buildings. From farm animals like chickens, birds, ducks, geese, turkeys, goats, horses, fishes and even deer, this place might give Old McDonald’s farm a run for its money. It’s not also just about getting personal with the farm animals as you too, get to be educated about tending a farm and caring for the animals. Don’t miss out on the feeding time for the animals too where you can feed them and watch them eat away on your hand for food.
