Travel Blogs from Georgetown

Absolutely spiffing in Penang.................!!!

A travel blog entry by mamacass


Our journey from Krabi to Penang went perfectly, apart from one maniac ini bus driver. The journey was long, but there were no problems and we were taken from hotel door to hotel door, all for 850 Bahts each (sixteen pounds). The journey is 560km, so another bargain. Our taxi left the hotel to take us to join the mini bus in Krabi town. Just a …

Butterflys and Monkeys

A travel blog entry by loisandgreta

Pretty Penang

A travel blog entry by lilipatch


Really like Penang. Has a bit of everything. Lots of culture of equal mix and friendly locals. Lovely beach at Batu Ferengi -hope that is spelt right! Lots of freshly caught seafood available here. We stayed in Georgetown which is close to Chinatown and Little India, the esplanade and Piers. If you want water activities stay Batu Ferengi.

We arrived Thursday late afternoon. The organisers could not get the car to …

    Decor, room, and food are beautiful. I would recommend this hotel to others as it is on the esplanade and close to Chinatown, Little India, places to eat and transport.
