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...

My most pressing task for the day was to tackle Air Asia. When it comes to cheap flights they can't be beaten but they put Ryan Air and Kulula in the shade when it comes to add ons.

"You want more than two lungs full of air during the flight?

... to return at 4 to collect it. That was it. Done. The same task which proved impossible and so difficult in India is the simplest of tasks in Malaysia. Georgetown is a very old city and has colonial style buildings, it was very similar to many places in east London or many other places in Europe but with a Chinese mix.

... else in the previous, diarrhea-filled weeks.

First stop was Chaweng Beach which, while extremely touristy, had a lot to offer my quest for self-(re)discovery. Highlights included a powdery-soft, sandy-white beach for morning jogs or walks; a lovely hotel swimming pool for refreshing daily laps; roadsides filled with free-flowing clothes to replace those that reminded me of toilet stops; a Bikram ...
