    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 …

    ... to switch buses, so it was too late by the time we got back but there is always another day for the pool. We definitely needed to freshen up before dinner. We decided to try out the Hard Rock cafe and if you look at the pictures, you will see we did not go hungry. We ordered a starter to share between all of us which included spring rolls, onion rings, potato skins and chicken wings. Even this was humongous! I did the strategic thing of making the boys eat most of the starter so I ...

    ... and Copthorne Members Club a deal was negotiated - and we booked in. Yes, the hotel was rather dated and in need of a refurb but with views to die for and a huge spacious room as well as a ginormous private balcony, sometimes size matters, we certainly weren’t complaining. For us, what we like and most appreciate in any accommodation is:-- clean, nice sheets and towels- hot water, a decent shower- quiet- wifi- ideally, a big ...

    ... Lipe and on the 18th an early morning wake up call was in order as the mini van would pick us up at 5am. Obviously being that this is Malaysia at 5am sharp the mini van turned up and away we went. Within 4 hours we was at the border crossing going through passport control getting stamped out of Malaysia and a little over 7 months after we last left, we was now back in Thailand. We drove one more hour until we arrived in the city of Hat Yai and then we was dropped off at a ...
