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.

If you are feeling really energetic make your way out to the national park. There are a variety of sights including a turtle hatchery, butterfly garden and some nice beaches. Just be warned this area is not for the faint of heart, out of shape or people with mobility issues. The hiking trails are laden with ...
... with an albino python a a pair of Macaws. The birds got grumpy with both Ross and Cam for some reason and the snake was not the most popular choice for all the boys (only about half were prepared to put it on their shoulders, and some were dumb enough to kiss it as well after being challenged by one of the parents!).
From here we crossed the 13km bridge and causeway onto the island of ...
