    Not bad, but came probably with unrealistic high hopes. Seems to be very popular, but didnt say anywhere else so can't compare to the competition...

    So today, what did I see while walking. All the …

Most of the budget accommodation is located on a road called Lebuh Chulia so we head there first. It's a sweaty walk as the sun is baking down on us. We pass lots of guesthouses but they look a bit **** and the road is …

    An unlikely stop

    Pulau Penang, Malaysia was not an important stop. Like what happens to so many travelers, I should imagine, Thailand had sucked me in well and truly leaving me wanting to come back for more.
