The centrepiece of the Balik Pulau Hakka Village is a Hakka tulou, the circular abode that is characteristic of Hakka architecture in Fujian Province, China. In addition, there will be a man-made lake, a cycling path and stalls selling Hakka-inspired souvenirs and delicacies.

The village will provide visitors an insight into the various commodity crops grown by the people of Balik Pulau such as nutmeg, clove, rubber and of course, Balik Pulau durian. For the locals, it will generate employment as well as awareness and pride over their heritage.

Getting there

When ready, visitors can reach the Balik Pulau Hakka Village by taking public transport to Jalan Kuala Sungai Pinang, which is served by Rapid Penang bus 404.
