      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 …

      Other facilities include a shower, it looks like a cupboard that had a black Polly tube nailed up the wall with a ball valve and shower head attached. The other is the same but with a toilet in there as well. I'm told there are no **** ...

Seeing our obvious lack of direction she lead us to Lebuh Chulia a few blocks away where dozens of cheap hotels are cheek by jowl in what were previously Chinese homes. We checked into Banana Guest House and after a tough days travelling it suited us admirably. No matter that ...

I heard from someone that there are over 40 recognised variations on that Indian Classic, Biryani, woo hoo. Sadly we won't be here long enough to try them all :(. After our cultural and glittering tour, we made our way back to the waterfront and found ourselves back in the clan jetty area. We decide to visit another clan jetty just to make sure we ...
