    Nice Hotel, Great Views, Poor Service

    We moved to this hotel from the Hong Ping and what sold it was the amazing view from the room on the 16th floor. The hotel was nice and of a similar standard to a 3 star hotel at home (UK) The service however was bad, staff were very ignorant and in no way wanted to help with anything! Also the rooms have WIFI at a shocking charge of 15RM per 24 hours (about £3) It's free in the lobby, although logs you out about every 5 mins...PAIN!

    ... and was lined with a huge variety of Asian foods - tens of options of Chinese dumplings, Thai pad thai, Malay roast duck, cabbage soup, chicken satay and a while selection of pan-Asian delights (a lot of which I couldn't even tell you what it was but it smelt delicious) along with a complex variety of noodle meals. We ordered our food and a skol beer and the food was brought to our table - not a luxury you usually get when eating ...

    ... wasting an extra five minutes, before discovering we had to exchange our online booking for paper tickets at an office that no-one actually directed to us properly (lots of general directions, and the odd wrong direction altogether) and finally we were told by the bus driver that our ticket wasn't going to take us to Penang! After quickly running back to the office to verify our mistake, we actually did have the right ticket but we now had to catch the slightly later bus - maybe that ...

    ... being 3pm. We both slept well that night, after another Indian dinner.

    Today was mostly about relaxing. We slept in, had another amazing breakfast, and chilled in our room before going out for lunch and a walk. A speciality of Penang is laksa asam, which is noodles in a fish, chili and tamarind paste sauce. An interesting flavour. Liam loved it. We only had one more "famous" dish to try while we were still in ...

    ... Chinese New Year paraphernalia and lanterns are everywhere – Red is the new black!

    A short stroll across the street takes us to the Burmese Buddhist Temple, which features a large standing Buddha together with lovely gardens and a gallery of beautifully intricate (almost fantasy-like) pictures detailing events from the life of the Buddha. There are also a couple fancy dragons demonstrating their dominion over ...

    Elaine had mentioned that she would have to take a trip to Penang, leaving on this date, in order to have the formal paperwork for her work permit processed at the Thai Consulate in George Town, Penang. She had asked me if I wanted to go with her, but having just arrived in Thailand, I wasn't sure if I felt like flying somewhere else. In the end I thought that it would be a good chance to see somewhere I had heard of, ...
