KOMTAR to the E & O Hotel

A travel blog entry by fulkss


The Chowrasta Market was busy this morning when I stopped by to pick up some dried mango. A few blocks further on was KOMTAR, the tallest building in Penang. KOMTAR is part government offices, part shopping center, and also the main bus station for the island. Took Bus 10 to the Penang Botanical Gardens and walked around there with a Chinese …

Cool breezes and warm walks

A travel blog entry by fulkss


Penang Hill is a 30-minute drive from the central bus station in Georgetown, along the city shops, apartment buildings, countryside, town markets, and past a beautiful 1885 Buddhist temple, too. The Hill, about 2700 feet high, has been a retreat, an escape from Penang's heat, since colonial days.

The bus stopped at the end of at a …

Taking a Vacation from Traveling

A travel blog entry by fulkss


Someone (Rick Steves, I think) argues that travelers should stop for a "time out" every so often, a mini-vacation from traveling. Today was my vacation. I woke up at 8:30 and just enjoyed being in a lovely room in a renovated Chinese mansion. My room is small, compact, but nicely decorated and comfortable. The Yeng Keng is small - 20 rooms - but …

Penang Hill

A travel blog entry by sydneyalicat

So another trip into the suburbs on the bus and finally make it to the funicular to go up Penang Hill. Get Fran as a child thank god as it is pricey, well worth it though when we set off. We have managed to grab the best seats in the house right at the front so we can watch the whole ride up, brilliant and it was much longer than I was expecting. …

First day in malaysia

A travel blog entry by sydneyalicat

Bloodt alarm, I thought i turned it off, no, 5am it starts chirping closely followed by the call to prayer from the neighbourhood mosque! Luckily I did manageto get back to sleep yey.

    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.
