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!!

... back into town we managed a quick turnaround for heading out to dinner. We decided to use the excuse of being back late to return to Hamideeyah, plus we'd heard they have the best beef rendang in town so wanted to try it out!! We can confirm, it is a very good rendang and definitely the source for the Rick Stein recipe that Amelia's a fan of (although like us, the restaurant uses less chilli than Mr S). Another lovely day, with lots of walking, a bit of shopping and more good ...

... no cupboards or hanging space or window and that the toilet leaked. George Town is fantastic - frenetic, We expect to be here a few nights and we are excited at the prospect of ferreting out all the interesting temples, mosques and just wandering the busy streets of the historic heritage quarter. We wish that we'd allowed a week. The rainy season is around the corner and we experienced a monstrous storm that lasted an hour. As we sat watching the passing ...

The Perankans and gold, lots of gold

... then the house, which has been lovingly restored and opened it up to the public. These people were rich on a level that is hard to understand. They used diamond brooches instead of buttons, they had tiaras, diamond necklaces, solid gold purses and bags, solid gold decorations for the pillows, even solid gold hold backs for their curtains. The family would have its own goldsmith and the men would earn the gold, and the ladies would sew, paint, and think of more things to do ...

... flavors is other-wordly and sophisticated, yet it is comfort food at heart.

Finding some of our eateries didn't always go to plan, either they had moved or you needed a 'local in the know' to show you which small alley behind the building with the blue doors, at the edge of the park, across from the temple you should take if you want to find the hawker with the 'best ever XX'. However disappointing these missed eating opportunities were, we ...
