    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!!

    Exploring Malaysia

    A travel blog entry by faraway-fantasy on Mar 08, 2014

    ... our way upstairs to go to sleep, when a few of the American guys who I had been talking to earlier on invited us to join them for a drink on the balcony. Camille and I agreed we may as well join them for one, and that as we only had one drink available to share, it would mean we would still get the early night we wanted. This plan backfired slightly when we realized the guys were playing card games, and after 6 of us doing a beer run to the local shop at 1.30am, Camille and I ...

    ... re on a 2 hour lunch break and we leave empty handed. What a load of jip!
    Lauren gets a dentists appointment for a clean up as our anti malarial pills have caused stains and erosion....she gets some fixed but others will need fillings to our annoyance and cost. We live and we learn. Lunch at Bread history is great and very cheap, we hope to go to the cinema here but the listings are too kiddy. An afternoon nap later we watch some national geographic before some drunk ...

    Ghost Town, Malaysia

    ... we found anywhere to eat. Much of the city felt like a ghost town, with the exception of Little India and a few backpacker bars. We ate in Little India our first night (I wouldn't mind this at all normally, but we are going to Sri Lanka next), and at Subway for lunch the next day. Our second night, we got Penang cuisine, but at a chain coffee shop-type place. More places opened up on our third day in Penang, the third day of Chinese New Year, so we did eventually try a ...

    ... call us a taxi to get us to the butterfly park as we don't have time to wait for the next bus and then you have to walk some. He arrives and he said it would be 20 MR as the woman said but he could wit for us for an hour or 2 hours and then take us back for another 20 and then add 10 for doing so. Sounds fair to me. So we drive the 10 minutes to the butterflies and it is just gorgeous. Big ones, small ones, colourful ones, stripey ones......and stick insects, leaf insects and even ...
