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 …
... 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 ...
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.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Penaga Georgetown
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.
