Penang national park and a pool!!

A travel blog entry by lisajoa


... Ayesha saw another snake and had a bit if a meltdown as she turned round and I tried to calm her down screamed there's another one behind you. I carried on calming her down and then said so there's a snake behind me? It's gone now, I never saw them :( this was the end of our trek to turtle beach. We saw some baby monkeys climbing up a post and jumping in the ...

Code Cracker, Room Jacker.

A travel blog entry by charlottesweb


... that the items of clothing there were worth more than my house, I parked myself on a sofa and thought I'd try hacking a wifi code, a talent travelling has uncovered. I successfully cracked my second code of the day, MI5 are missing out on something here. We thought we would go have a cultured walk around Singapore and ended up getting lost and walking for five hours. Hobbling and blistered we were pretty sorry states, but we did find our way in the end (multiple times actually as ...

Day 79 - Penang Hill & The Bus to Singapore

A travel blog entry by costin


... that we have been visiting - big groups of people are infuriating, they don't half get in the way! Aside from that minor irritation, Penang Hill was really picturesque and the views across the Island didn't disappoint. The efforts at the top of the hill to add to the experience were less of a success though! There was a stage where there were two people winding up snakes and then weaving out of the way when the snakes tried to attack them. It was entertaining, ...

... working today and then stroll round a few of the shops and end up at the cinema where Sim tucks into some 'London Fries' and then we decide to watch the second Hunger Games' film (a bargain at £3 a ticket!). We go back to our hotel and another interrupted sleep awaits me! Nav ...

    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!!
