    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 first stop is the Penang Museum, where to me (JB) the most interesting things were examples of old Opium Beds, as historically during the colonial periods (and probably before and after that!), opium was an important money crop for the area. In addition I spied a fantastic old phonograph and music box. Penang has a rich history of the exploits of traders over the centuries, and many artifacts and photos are shown ...

There was a TGIF Fridays, Sephora, H&M, MIchael Kors, etc. There was a little grocery store in the bottom of the mall so we stocked up on Evian water (I'm afraid to drink any other water here) , some pepsi (warm), and some fresh fruit. I was plesantly surprised by the grocery store ... I think we will be back there.

    ... sorry' and moved HIS car so I could take a proper photo. The most embarrassing moment of my life. Seconded by going to a block of toilets with mum, we found one 'western toilet' with the rest being squat. This one toilet had a green symbol so I assumed it was empty, however it wasn't opening so I started shaking to get in, after a good 20 seconds we heard them flush; there was someone in there! So I ran off and left mum to deal with it. ...

We spent the afternoon chatting, and I went for a sunset walk on the beach, which is only 100 yards away, on the other side of the road. An early night was in order, after a very long, continuos journey, from Siem Reap in Cambodia, via Bangkok, to the small beach resort of Nong Thale, near Klong Muang Beach in the South of ...

    ... cat!), lizards that ran like the way Justin dances, a crazy long and intense ant highway which we followed for as long as we could. It was shear ant madness when I conducted an experiment of placing a road block in the middle of their highway for a second. But within a couple minutes, the ants were right back on their way. We also saw the oldest post box for the hill and the iconic "you haven't visited Penang unless you've visited Penang hill" sign. There were very ...
