Monday 28th October

The day dawned bright, and remained so – and HOT! Umbrella sunshades out! Penang is not as ordered as Singapore nor as charming as Melaka but somehow has a bit of both.

This old quarter of George Town seems to be mainly Chinese shophouses in various states of repair – our hotel has been …

Sunday October 27th

The heavy night rain cleared by the morning, and after a breakfast of waffles and omelette we hit the road. Well we went back to Tanah Rata looking for an ATM which rejected both our Lloyds and Barclays cards. What's the point of telling your bank you are going away?? It drives me nuts – other people …

South East Asia's best food..?

A travel blog entry by jessicachant88


... next day we walked around the city to find various street art that is dotted around, we walked for a few hours and saw about 15 different pieces. Some of them were amazing and had a fake swing or a bike to sit in and look like you were part of the picture. There are still storms in the evening here so we took shelter in a pub, unfortunately alcohol is very expensive here because ...

What do those koi fish eat?

A travel blog entry by krocodiletears


Franki is worried about the koi fish. The question is - can they exist on two slices of white bread a day. At home Franki buys expensive fish food for her goldfish. Do they appreciate how fortunate they are. Here in the foyer of the Banana Boutique guest house fifteen enormous koi swim endlessly round in less than six inches of water and they seem content with their meagre offerings. Just a few ...

A Spontaneous Tour

A travel blog entry by jasonandgaryn


... a local tour guide. After speaking with him for about 10 minutes, we ended up agreeing on a price and itinerary and suddenly we had spontaneously booked a private tour! Gary started out by taking us to eat some terrific street food, since Penang is of course one of the top street food cities in Asia. Jason and I both got our own meals, I had char koay teow (noodles with prawns and spices served on banana leaf) and Jason had asam laksa (sour fish noodle soup) and ...

    Exceptional service in an exceptionally beautiful hotel. Fantastic location but quietly hidden in a little side street. I would and am recommending everyone to stay here if they are in Penang. The only place have ever heard of a free minibar! The owners have done a fantastic job and you can read about their journey and where all of your pictures in your room come from - it's really very personal. The breakfast was lovely and I can't say enough about the friendliness of the ALL of the staff.
