    The hotel is in the middle of many tourist's attractions. You can walk or just take a bus around Pinang.
    Room is clean and view to the sea is great.

    It's more than we ever spent when we were backpacking, but for a few-day trip now that we're working, $60 was a great deal for such a nice place. It's definitely up to Western standards and isn't a budget hotel. If you want to splurge for a few nights and have hot showers and nice sea views, this is a perfect place to do it.

    ... being set up (Ramadan finishes Tuesday) and there will be plenty of feasting. We will be happy to be in the resort by then out of the hub bub. We have read that Tek Sen is very popular and only open 5.30-8.30 for dinner. We have learnt over our time travelling that if you really want to experience something, you have to play by their rules. So we dutifully went for a very early dinner, got there at 6pm and got a seat no problem. Within ...

We grabbed a curry for dinner then took the bus back to Georgetown stopping at tesco on the way back for some bits we needed. Headed back to our hotel and planned our day out for tomorrow heading out to a national park it sounds amazing ...

    ... huge wave and I flew up in the air and came smashing down on tail bone (two back surgeries, 2007 and 2010) and lay on the deck moaning in agony. Fortunately it was not a new back injury but bilaterally smashed butt-bones that were causing all the pain and I recovered quickly with only a mildly bruised bottom. It was slightly reminiscent of bashed bottoms and bruised backsides in Battambang, but with less baby diarrhea.

    We saw some interesting architecture along the ...

    ... turned out to be the main road through Georgetown and a few doors down from where we were looking for. The original hostel we were supposed to find was also right in front of where the bus had dropped us off but we just walked the wrong way! Little India is brilliant. It's how I imagine actual India is! There are loads of sari shops, food stalls, gold shops and music shops blaring out Indian songs along with an old looking cinema that just plays Bollywood films. ...

    Not only did we manage to avoid spilling our food all over the bus, but also we managed to find the correct bus stop to get off. We were met by almost the exact opposite of Ang. Kingsley, a tall, quiet *****ian student, welcomed us off the bus with a gentle handshake, and led us towards his flat at the centre of a labyrinthine series of generic but not unpleasant tower blocks.

    After dumping our bags in his little flat, we sat up quite ...
