    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!!

    Our bus journey to Penang was uneventful also, thank god. The buses seem to be definitely a lot safer over here. As we arrived into Penang, which is north west of Malaysia, it started to absolutely pour down. Its still obviously the wet season here as it rains quite a bit and when it does, it lashes!!! We got off our bus but still had to …

    ... temple and we could see why. It was magnificent! Luckily there was not a lot of steps so we were all happy about this. There was many chinese decorations, getting ready for the Chinese New Year which is taking place on the 19th February. They all looked so beautiful and it was one of the nicest temples we have been to and we have been to a lot!! The pool was calling our names and that was the plan. However, things did not turn out this way. We had to wait ages for the bus and ...

    ... 8230;.. Phew, one and a half hours later we arrived at the hotel, we had a chat with the receptionist and were shown the different grades of rooms. We were keen to secure a deluxe room in the ‘beach’ wing which had a private ‘infinity’ balcony but it was out of budget range. You can’t always get what you want but if you don’t ask you don’t get so we asked and thanks to having signed up to ...

    ... clothes. There are people and animals everywhere, all eating, and we watch the sunset on Mulu for the last time.


    The following day our flight is delayed, so we spend 5 hours at the tiny airport, the boredom broken only by a German card game called Schnautz we have learnt, and a parasitic tick that tried to burrow into one of my toes.

    We returned to Miri, in serious need of a laundry and some rudimentary plumbing. We intended to move on ...
