Batu Kawan (GPS: 5.26481, 100.43598)m (Traditional Chinese: 峇都交灣; Simplified Chinese: 峇都交湾; Pinyin: Bādōu Jiāowān; Tamil: பத்து காவான்) in Seberang Perai Selatan is the site for the third township to be planned in Penang, after Bayan Baru and Seberang Jaya. The masterplan for Batu Kawan covers 2887 acres. Prior to the impending development, the Batu Kawan area is a sleepy fishing hamlet most famous for its seafood.

The village of Batu Kawan is located by the banks of Sungai Jawi. Food enthusiasts come all the way from Penang Island to enjoy the seafood of Batu Kawan and nearby Bukit Tambun.

In the year 2000, the new Penang State Stadium or Stadium Negeri Pulau Pinang was completed in Batu Kawan. However, the most exciting development for Batu Kawan is that it is the site for the mainland end of the Second Penang Bridge. This particular development will certainly spearhead growth in this area, elevating the price of land and property.

One can take ferries from Batu Kawan to Pulau Aman. The jetty is located at a place called Bagan, just across from Batu Kawan.

Updates on Batu Kawan

15 September, 2015: The Star reports that the state government is in the midst of finding a name for the township in Batu Kawan. This new township, which will encompass Ikea, Aspen Vision City, The Penang Design Village and universities to be built in that area, will be larger than the existing township of Batu Kawan.

Getting there

As of now (Mar 2013), Batu Kawan is not served by any Rapid Penang bus routes. This is expected to change in the future, when more people start to reside there.
