Approximate after 15 minutes of drive from Balik Pulau, there is a lookout area offering an aerial view of the west island of Penang. As per the road signage, the place was named as Anjung Indah. However, we did not able to spot a proper signage of the lookout area. The lookout area is located along the Jalan Tun Sardon.

There were some stalls too offering food beverages and some local fruits at the lookout area. However, there were only a mere three stalls were on business during my visit considering the large area projected for the stalls. I supposed there will be more stalls opening during the weekends and especially when the seasons of the local fruits.

Without doubt, the lookout area is part of the gazetted area to preserve the natural forest of Penang. Hopefully the green lungs will not give place for development in the future and will remained for as long as possible.
There were this staircase leading to the higher part of the lookout area to offer an even better panoramic view of the Penang west island.
There were seats and table erected for those who love to picnic at the park. Even though it was sunny, however it was not hot thanks to the canopy sheltering the sun light and also the presence of the strong wind.

I particularly enjoyed the strong breeze blowing at your face. Coupled with green surroundings, it did offered a relaxing session from the bustling city of Georgetown. The only drawback was that the accessibility to this lookout area where one have to go through the winding road before reaching here. Apart from that, it is all well worth a drop by after some asam laksa treat at Balik Pulau.
