Penang Day 1,
I arrived in Penang at 8pm, took the 1 hour taxi ride to my hotel and settled in for the night, I was lucky enough to get a free upgrade to the King Suite with ocean view, comfy king bed all to myself and finally a nice quiet hotel without tooting horns or constant traffic noise, the hotel is very nice, at $246 for 5 nights I …
... service lunch. Satays, nasi goreng, nasi Lemak. So tasty. Then rain stopped so straight to pool for a swim (D wanted to wait 1/2 hour but I live dangerously).

Creaking boards which were rotten -( or at least that was how it seemed to me ) at the ends, and that horrible feeling when you stand on a plank and it starts to bounce. Of course Martin was a source of great comfort during this walk, jumping up and down "testing" the planks. But as I mentioned, thankfully this jetty was way smaller, and this visit way shorter. There were no tourist shops, and no little ...
