Penang: Sharon and Tony join us for a week

A travel blog entry by daveandjenna


... and some rounds of Bananagrams. we all retired to bed, feeling relaxed after a day in the sun. The following day however was to be slightly more active. After breakfast, we made our way to the Funicular railway which would take us up to Penang Hill. While during our last stay in Penang we walked both up and down the hill, we realised that in the cost of the railway vs the trauma of walking up the steep slope, the railway won hands down. We enjoyed a speedy ascent to ...

Happy Ending

... 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.

We also saw the torture chambers, infirmaries, ...

Best noodles in town

... and Penang island as a whole. Turns out the ports are also closed on Sundays; we saw a little of the island and a lot of the cargo ships waiting to unload on Monday. The weather in Georgetown was fantastic- hot, sunny and not that humid. So Sunday afternoon we managed to somehow enter an Infiniti pool in a hotel complex which overlooked the ocean. The pool was wonderfully cold and salt water fed so great to swim in. After walking for 16km that day and ...

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...
