|This gorgeous bay is only a short hike from Teluk Bahang.|
Until we reached Teluk Bahang, I thought Georgetown's sprawl might extend all the way to Penang's west coast. The city bus drove under towering seaside hotels, past malls and markets all the way through Batu Ferringi. This end-of-the-road, coastal village was different. Teluk Bahang is no backwater - it still has a few tall apartment complexes and its very own 24-hour Indian restaurant – but it is wooded and relatively quiet.
