      This is a really cool place to stay. the staff are really friendly and very helpful. You walk through their lounge and up the stairs to the room, bathrooms and balcony. The signs around the place are really novel but very helpful!

      Babas is just across the road from the beach with a big balcony to sit and chat. We had a load of laundry done which is RM6 per 1kg which was really handy so we didn't have sit and to do it! They sell water, beer and other cool drinks here.

      The room is pretty big and very basic, it has all that you need a comfy bed, clean sheets, a desk and some hooks to hang your clothes. We chose a double room with a fan for RM50 and are very happy, so we are staying another night here! The bathrooms are like a wet room and are very clean with a powerful hot shower .Oh and there are NO bedbugs!! So over all a fantastic place to stay and i would recommend it. They do have rooms with aircon that are a little more expensive.

      We found them on the internet and called them from George Town to see if they had space. The lady gave us directions and which bus to catch. The bus was an hours journey and cost RM2.50 pp.

      Baba Guesthouse lived up to all the reviews I read. It had a friendly atmosphere. Right next to the beach. The Chinese family who own the guesthouse are so helpful and kind. During my stay i didn't see one cockroach although when outside my room having some drinks with some people I met, there were mice/rats scurring across. If you don't mind that then it's worth the stay. There is a mosque near by, which I have been told blare out the morning prayer very loudly but i didn't hear anything!! Overall a good place, i liked it. Not sure if i'd go back, but i enjoyed my experience there!!

      ... in love lane. We stopped at a nutella and coffee shop we found on the internet which had nutella pancakes. We went inside the shop and talked to the girl at the counter. I ordered a nutella frappe, dad ordered a coffee and we ordered a plate of nutella pancakes to share. Once we had everything we ordered on the table, we started to eat. We were surprised to find that the pancakes came with fruit! I let dad have the oranges and apples while ...

      ... hotel for a last swim and then it was time to shower and change before check out time at 2. We still had a couple of hours to kill before our taxi pick up for the airport so what better way to fill in time but with another foot massage! What a nice way to end our trip to Penang.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our five day trip. Definitely well worth spending some time enjoying the delights of Malaysia.

      ... made it to the turtle conservation, which took us about an hour when the recommended time was an 1 hr 20, we were a little disappointed at how small this centre was. We did get to see two little turtles each about a year old, but that was it. On the plus side, we read some interesting information about sea turtles (like the fact that they haven't evolved much in 100 million years) and we had shelter during the heaviest part of the rainfall. After our ...

      Wow, this is probably the longest flight I have EVER taken in my life. The plane departed LAX and flew 10 1/2 hours to Tokyo with 2 1/2 hours lay over, then another 6 hours to Kuala Lumpur with 3 1/2 hours lay over and 40 minutes to Penang. Adding on crossing international dateline, it literally took 2 days to get here !!! I was lucky to have met this nice Malay man who happens to be sitting next to me on this long journey . ...
