We first travelled to Fort Cornwallis, the initial site of European colonization and control of the island. After this we travelled to the Clan Jetties. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a family village essentially built on stilts (and paint buckets filled with ...

Happy Ending

A travel blog entry by gflacke


... ornamentation for the New Year, including mounds of fresh fruit and flower offerings at the altars, was pretty remarkable. There was so much incense burning that any asthmatics within five miles were probably having apoplectic fits.

After taking in as much temple grandeur as possible we headed to a well-known local eating establishment, aptly named China House, for one of their famed desserts. They had cakes and tortes and pies galore, chocolate and cream ...

Penang: Chinese New Year

A travel blog entry by daveandjenna


... and we were quick to buy one. We left the jetty with our fourth piece of artwork from this trip, despite the fact that we have no walls on which to hang them.

There was nothing official about it. Every man and his child was setting them off, the sky was awash with colour, ...

... of the largest reclining Buddhas in the world. Her toenails were painted a beautiful color. After this I headed up the coast towards one of the beaches with a view of staying there for one night. On arrival I realized that the tsunami/recession had hit this area hard- about 2/3 of the buildings were shut/derelict so another night in Georgetown it would be. After a few hours on the beach I headed further up the coast to the Spice Garden. For someone that is not particularly ...

    It was the place that me and my family used to stay at every month. And here I come back! Nothing change in the hotel but the memories of the hotel will always remain in my mind! Closed by to food and attraction. But quite far from beach but it is in the center of shopping!
