        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!!

        Penang is an island connected to the mainland by two bridges, hence it is a very busy and touristy place. I decided to stay outside of Georgetown, because I had found a very well rated place on Baba Guesthouse by the beach. It fulfilled my main requirements: private bathroom, near the beach, AC and cheap. I was very happy with the …

        ... at 4am by the heaviest rain we have ever heard! It feels like the building is going to come down and car alarms were being set off. Then the thunder and lightening starts which is like nothing we have seen or heard either. The room was being fully lit by the lightening and the thunder was genuinely scary! To add to it our roof started leaking which soaked my bedside table with My iPod and earphones on. Fingers crossed they still work in the morning. It kept us awake for a ...

        ... by Lonely Planet as #1 spot for foodies in 2014, it is no wonder to us why Penang is regarded as the jewel of South East Asia when it comes to food. It didn't take us long to find ourselves planning our days around three square meals, with a few light nibbles in between to tie us over. A good friend of mine from medical school, Hsein Wei, was kind enough to make the drive up to Penang from his hometown in Taiping, Malaysia, and introduced us to the flavours ...

        ... a little earlier as several of the produce stalls were closing up. From here we made our way to the bus station and caught the bus to Penang Hill. I love the station the timetable tells you how much longer the bus will be and says arrives as it pulls in. You need to have exact fare for the bus as the drivers do not give change. we arrived at Penang Hill and bought tickets for the funicular train to the top. They certainly crowd lots ...

That evening we said goodbye to Georgetown and made our way to the train station for our overnight journey to Kuala Lumpur. Nothing noteworthy to say about our one day pit stop in KL other than it was spent finalising our rough itinerary for the Philippines as well as an afternoon trip to the ...
