Pearl of the Orient - Balik Pulau

Balik Pulau (literally meaning back of the island) is a town in Penang, Malaysia. It takes about a 75min bus ride to get there from Georgetown. Durians and other kinds of fruits are planted there. The area was affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.  – Wikipedia
