This place didn't work for us although others seemed happy and had extended stays. Staff did their jobs but weren't very friendly. The front restaurant was full of guests smoking and it was a closed in area. We stayed in the dorms (big mistake) as they stunk! We moved on quickly...

Day 224 George Town

A travel blog entry by elliotgamble on Apr 27, 2014

Sarah and I allowed ourselves to have a very relaxed morning. We hadn't had luxury for a while and we were making the most out of it. After the long, chilled process of getting ready we went out for a wonder around the city. Unfortunately after 10 minutes of us leaving it started pouring with rain. This ended our little explore. When the rain died off we went out to explore again. After walking around I realised that George Town is an extremely arty place. ...

Despite sharing the room with two other guys I slept well until 6:30am Australian time. Since that made it 4:30am local time I tried to go back to sleep until about 7am. Some interesting things about the hostel. It's popular with Asian tourists. I saw maybe four other Caucasian guests while I was there. Since it's Japanese "inspired" you have to take your shoes off. As the hostel is a terrace house there aren't many windows. I don't know if ...

... are really comfortable. They are more like living room recliners than bus seats. 30 minutes later we are still sitting, the bus has not moved. I suggest maybe the driver went back to sleep. By 8:15 we are pulling out of the station, 30 minutes late. We are the only two on the bus. Then, we stop to fill the bus with diesel.  Along the way sometimes someone will flag the bus down and we stop to pick them up. Eventually, the bus is about half full. It is 370km ...

... temple complex is the size of a small town and includes features such as the Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas (that’s a lot of Buddhas!), the 16 dragon pillars, and a 30+ meter tall statue of Kuan Yin, the goddess of mercy. We spent over 3 hours walking around enjoying the beautiful colors, sights, and sounds, but it did feel a bit like we were at Malaysian Disneyland due to the crowds, the lights, and the ostentatiousness of it all. There were many Buddhist monks in traditional ...

A trip to Penang

... our flight was delayed by 35 minutes.

We had quite a bumpy journey - there was thunder and lightening to our right which was quite amazing to watch. When we landed, yes you guessed it was torrential rain. Don't think the minibus driver was to impressed with having to wait for us but not our fault. We got back to the shack about 10.30 and everyone just went to bed shattered.

All in all a busy week-end but all worthwhile just for the hotel room.
