Long journey to the beach!

A travel blog entry by beyersandlisa


We had a crazy night, at the backpackers we stayed in as the music was mental till 3.30am! I guess staying above a pub is a sign it will be noisy! I wouldn't stay here again and was glad to leave KL to head to the beach. We left the hostel at 7am to walk to the mono rail to Sentral St to catch our train to Butterworth. We arrived on time and even …

Jæja, nú fer að styttast í að þessu ævintýri ljúki. 2-3 sólahringa ferðalag hefst á föstudaginn næsta og lendum við um miðnætti á sunnudag á klakanum. Síðustu 3 vikur höfum við verið í Penang þar sem Ellen bjó þ …

Ner genom Thailand och in i Malaysia!

Ja mycket kul har hänt sen jag skrev sist och många nya platser har besökts!

På Phi Phi Don stannade vi två nätter och där blev det återigen en kajaktur och resten av tiden gick mest åt till att slappa på stranden. Inte så mycket folk som jag hade befarat men väldigt turistanpassat är väl en bra sammanfattning.

Efter Phi Phi tog …

What and who do I see!?

To say the driver who drove us to Pinang was crazy is an UNDERSTATEMENT he was absolutely MENTAL!! He dove sooooo fast a journey which should take around 4.5 hours took him just over 3 hours. And we had a 10 min stop too. He was driving ridiculous speeds, I was scared for my life!!

After getting of the DEATH COACH, i aimed to get a taxi …

Made it to the beach

A travel blog entry by garyandjenny


After having travelled overland for 3 months, from Stockholm to Macau, it seems like such a shame to be flying. We have enjoyed train travel. It may take longer, but its much more comfortable and relaxing. Anyhow we have now made our first flight and landed on Penang Island, Malaysia.

Batu Ferrangu is not amazing but it has a long sandy …

    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!!
