    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!!

    Day 11 - The day after...

    A travel blog entry by gab4ever on Mar 09, 2014

    This was the least favourite day of the trip... The day to say goodbye again. Even though Justine didn't have to catch her flight until 14:55 and I still stayed one night for the ferry, it was a bit sad. We got op, cleaned up after ourselves and went for the pool to relax. We agreed to have lunch with Jon and Rachel for the last time. Justine and I just talked and talked until it was time to go. We waited for Rachel and ...

    ... There is some beautiful scenery as we ride through the mountains. I like to do day trips when I travel, if possible, just because of the scenery. On night busses, of course, you miss any scenery on the trip. In my travels the journey is just as important as the destination, and sometimes more interesting! Along the highway I see rolling hills and mountainsides covered with palm trees. I learn later they are 'oil palm trees'. The rainforest is under threat ...

    ... Candace wanted a good quality toaster and apparently they are the equivalent of hundreds of dollars in Malaysia, so she ordered an Australian toaster and I transported it for her.

    Anyway, upon arrival in Singapore I had to wait in a ridiculously long line to clear immigration, collect my checked bag, go through customs, leave the secure area, go to the check-in counter upstairs, wait in a ludicrously long line, recheck my bag, go back through ...

    Going home we wont have to.
    We then shower and head back up to Prangin mall to pick up Staceys tablet from Hong Kong Videos. We bought it last Christmas in KL and the battery wasn't holding.......just under warranty, they are sending it off to be replaced.
    It is here ready for us and we make other purchases for birthday gifts and a power bank for the tablet.
    We then head ...
