    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!

    ... the next three days; On journey Inn. This hostel was located on Kimberly Street one of the main hawker restaurant streets in Chinatown and the smells were just starting when I arrived.

    After dropping all my bags and having a quick catch up with the world on wifi I grabbed a couple city maps and hit the streets in search of delicious food. My first stop was fried noodles, followed by satays and then finished with Chinese tea served in a bag. All very local ...

    Today I woke up by myself, it felt good being able to wake up by myself for a change. Once I was awake it didn't take long for dad to wake up and tell me I could have 5 more minutes in bed. As soon as the 5 minutes was up, dad told me to have a shower and get dressed. When we were both ready for breakfast, we headed upstairs to have some honey on toast ( not as nice as my usual breakfast in KL but it would do. ) Once breakfast was done, we headed back to our room when I ...

    ... countryside rolling by before we reached Butterworth. We got off the train, changed our Baht for Ringitts and headed over to catch the ferry. Having not had a good nights' sleep and having only got the new currency, Ed tried paying for the tickets with the equivalent of a 2p coin. It was actually 25p each! After checking into our hostel on Love Lane (apparently named after the string of affairs that used to happen behind closed doors!) and having a ...

    ... dangerously close to slamming the engine into the sand – ABORT!!! Hank quickly got us out of there and back out into deeper water as we reconsidered the situation.

    We had a boat full of picnic foods, adult beverages, and beach-going gear – how could be turn back now? We decided to take a second approach more toward the middle of the beach, where several other boats had successfully moored. We came in slowly and tried again, got the anchor secured and managed ...
