Penang: Chinese New Year

... machine-gun-like firecrackers being set off along the street and around the neighbourhood. On the ninth evening we wandered down to the Chew Jetty for the main Hokkien celebration. A collection of stilted houses and temples stretching out above the water, we’d visited it several times before, but tonight it was alive with people, stages, offerings and performers. We watched dancers dance at the end of the jetty; men and women offer prayers and gifts at the various ...

... a drain running along the back wall that you were supposed to aim into; not so easy if you are female. Super-hygienic as well, I am sure, as I managed to pee all over my feet and then didn't have anything with which to rinse them; thank goodness for wet-wipes (which are also useful for wiping off your baby's face after it splatters diarrhea all over your feet).


Our next destination was the Snake Temple, on the southeast end of the island. We were using ...

... direction as I shot back to the surface, causing them to take evasive action. The boat crew were very chilled, just dropping us in and picking us up whenever we liked so after a short break I jumped back in to be greeted by a massive school of fish coming up the current, with manta after manta appearing through the thick cloud of fish. We were dropped in again off an island where we saw five mantas swimming in line formation. Unbelievable day, such elegant and ...

Georgetown is a great little city known for its street food and street art. We had a few tasty treats while we were there, one of them being an awesome chocolate, peanut butter and banana smoothie - highly recommended. The street art is really clever check out the ...

    We like staying at quaint old places exuding old world charm and this one fitted the description to the t. We normally stop at Penang during our trips further north and have so far stuck to Batu Firringhi area. This turned out to be a nice deviation from usual and we'd be doing it more often. Staff are very friendly with a helpful attitude. Rooms are very neat and clean. Great courtyard for languishing and exploring. Some great photo ops which my wife and daughter exploited to the fullest. Area around hotel is old Penang city so interesting to explore. Definitely value for money.

    The moment I stepped in the hotel I knew I would come back again. I have enjoyed my stay because the staffs at the hotel provided excellent service. They were also very friendly and helpful. Choice of breakfast was great and I settled down with hot tea and Nonya delicacies. The cafe where I had breakfast was very peaceful as there was no crowd (unlike other hotels) and I enjoyed every sip of my tea. The swimming pool area was my favourite part of the hotel. Small yet cosy and very peaceful, a good place to read a book and soak up in the Sun. No noisy kids jumping around splashing water, etc. This hotel is perfect for couples or those on solo trips who just want to take a break from work.
