Bayan Baru is located in Penang. But even more importantly, it is located within the area of Bayan Lepas, therefore making it in turn very urban and amenity rich. A far cry from its rice plantation days along with it being flood prone, better drainage systems has saved the area. Considered a “satellite town”, the area provides for its residents in every aspect. It is nearby the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone, therefore creating many employment opportunities for its people. Entertainment wise it offers several malls namely the Sunshine Square, Queensbay Mall and the Bukit Jambul Complex.
Fresh produce can be bought from the Bayan Baru Market and groceries from a Giant Hypermarket. Recreational activities can be carried out in the Penang International Sports Arena. The famous Pantai Mutiara Hospital serves residents medicals needs. Another big plus is that it within close range of the Penang International Airport, located in Bayan Lepas itself. It provides Rapid Penang service and with its network of highways including the Bayan Lepas Elevated Highway, an upgrade on the already busy Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, travelling is a breeze.
