    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!

    Today we arrived in Georgetown. After walking around, getting some Ringit and our bearings we found some accommodations. Lisa and Larissa got a hostel and I found myself a hotel. After getting situated, we walked around the town.

    Georgetown (spelled as George Town more commonly) was colonized by the British and named after King George III. It has a population of ...

    ... place, reported to have a cheap set menus and thick lassies. On both fronts we were highly impressed. The set menu, for only $2.20, gave you a big plate of rice and 6 different curries, veggies, and dahls. Neither of us could even finish them. And the lassies were the best that either of us has ever had. The afternoon consisted of some exploring, and some hiding from the heat in our room. Dinner was had at a hawker food court, ...

    ... us, it’s been the perfect sanctuary from the heat & an opportunity to get our Din Tai Fung fix. Our daily routine of gym has been replaced with walking. I’m convinced we have already walked 500 miles, unfortunately I did not pack my Fit Bit to confirm if this is true. Our regular breakfast of eggs, sourdough, avocado & salmon or oats has been replaced with curry, roti, & dosa. I’m convinced we’ve already eaten enough rice and ...

And for anyone who finds themselves in Penang and looking for a hot tip, the Red Garden Hawker Centre on Lebuh Leith has our vote, thanks to its great local cuisine, and crazy musical entertainment from 9pm. Our adventures in Penang also saw the long awaited arrival of our first travelling buddy, James McCoy, who will be joining us for a few weeks as we island-hop up through northern Malaysia ...
