      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!

      ... dosi, aloo mutter. The service was ****, we thought it was because we were white. But an elderly white group came in later and they got superb service! I think they didn't like that we were young. The streets of Penang are beautiful! We walked all through little India after dinner taking in the differences in culture. Every shop was vibrant and colourful, filled with silk scarves, jewelry, and fabrics on all sorts. Food stalls ...

      ... move inland to the tea plantation highlands. Good job we like where we are then.

      Yesterday we decided to pretend we were cultured and went museum hunting, took pictures of the multitude of street art that helps define Georgetown, and paid a visit to the clan jetties.

      The Penang museum was fairly unremarkable, though more so than the Islamic museum which, despite it's appearance on street maps, does not exist. Let's hear it for ...

      ... but made sure we stopped by the sweet man in Little India for old times sake and took home a bag of goodies to nibble on in bed watching another **** film on Fox Movies. Our last day in Georgetown included a visit to the hawker stalls on New Lane for Dry Maggie Noodles, always a winner, and Nicola tried the rice dumplings in banana leaves, also pretty tasty. We then stopped by the sweetest little fruit lady who knew she had an impressive selection of exotic fruits ...

      It's not difficult to meet new people in Penang, especially around Love Lane which is a favourite hang-out and accommodation spot for backpackers. But you will see the same people again and again as you walk around the town. The centre is small enough that everything is walkable while the funicular railway at Penang Hill (a bus ride away) will give a welcome break from the humidity and heat. Just remember ...

He looked and smiled so we did too, and then it was our turn for the photo opp. I got my little minion out and Martin carefully placed him in the hole, I took a photo and then, horror of horror he fell out! It gets worse, there was an open sewer running just below! Fortunately the crisis was averted as he landed clear of the ...
