Pulau Betong (16 February, 2013)



Pulau Betong is a small island on the southwest corner of Penang Island. Located on the Penang side is a village called Kampung Pulau Betong, which gets its name from the island. The island itself is derived from the Malay word for bamboo that is tied together to form a raft.

Pulau Betong can be seen from the country road that leads to Pasir Panjang. The island is not accessible except by boat. Pulau Betong is uninhabited, safe for some fish-breeding activities conducted there.
