    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!!

    ... Known as the Pearl of the Orient, our first stop was Penang Hill for Panoramic views of the city. Not only were the views spectacular to say the least, but being up high meant that it was several degrees cooler than down in Georgetown. The cable car to get up the hill was definitely an experiece; given the gradient we were travelling for part of the trip meant that it was pretty much an ...

    ... struck up conversation, asking where we from. We told him and then I started talking to him about Malaysian food and the reputation Penang has as the best street food destination in South East Asia (if not the world!). He was really interested in how we knew so much about it before we got here. He seemed intrigued by how his hometown was portrayed to the rest of the world. I suppose I would be too, if Redhill was a world renowned tourist destination! ...

    terminal just outside of the city.

    I had a plane ticket to Penang from the small airport in Bangkok. It was
    finally time to leave Thailand and I was excited to meet back up with
    Sara, my Kiwi friend. To get to the airport meant I had to get a local
    bus from the bus station which was easier said than done. The driver had
