    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 …

    ... 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 ...

Długie schody prowadzące do wejścia, jak i niestety wnetrzne zamieniono na ciąg obskurnych sklepików z durnistojami. Nawet obok posągów Buddy można zobaczyć wiszące koszulki, torebki i co tam jeszcze nadaje się na wepchniecie turystom. Pośrodku budynku zbudowano mały akwen wodny ...

From the boarder it was another 2.5-3h to Penang which we spent reading and playing the "if I was going on vacation game" hahah justin didn't want to play and was laughing frustratingly every time I came up with a new riddle for the game. It was just something to pass the time but it was also good fun to bug him. Then from the train it was anther ferry ride (1.20RM; 30cents) and taxi ride (12RM; ...

Stopping off we walked through a fantastic hotel to use the facilities before going to sit on a plastic chair under a coconut tree on a cheap beach side cafe, watching the sun do down with beer and ...
