    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!

    ... only be described as soggy noodle lasagne. We were unsure if it was noodles or some sort of intestines so I didn't eat too much of it. After this we realised that we'd basically run out of things to do in Penang. We're not proud of this but we went back to the hostel, got showered and went to the cinema. We saw Fast & Furious 7, which I'm surprised Jenn agreed to watch. But it was a really good film and the cinema was brilliant! Much better than English cinemas. It also had ...

    ... video I posted listen carefully, a monkey starts to pee from above on a wire which was right next to me. You will see in the one picture … I sat down and one came right up to me. He was a calm monkey. We sat and had a conversation for a few minutes. I reached to touch his hand … but Kevin stopped me. He was my bodyguard for this trip so I ...

    ... to relax a little after our sheer-death monkey experience, we visited the Kek Lok Si temple which is a shortish walk from the Penang Hill cable car. A spectacular series of temple structures, although it does feel slightly over-run by shops that are oddly within the temple grounds itself.

    After our experience on Penang Hill it was with a little trepidation that we took our next day trip to Penang National Park and Monkey Beach. After an hour walk along the ...

    ... on our faces when we were leaving- and that's tell you something about the place. Our next stop was Georgetown on Penang Island- World Heritage Town highly prized for cultural diversity etc. For us- the longest 5 days of our entire trip. After seeing this town for an hour or 2 you start wondering... what the people deciding to grant this place a a World Heritahe Town status were smoking...and if you could have some of this stuff too as it must be powerful. In my humble opinion ...

    ... Although this is a fantastic place - I think I preferred Melaka just a touch to here! Nevertheless Georgetown is a great place. You can visit the botanical gardens, trek the Penang Hill which is quite difficult ( once more it started to cloud over and pour down just as I got to the top :(. You ca explore the city and particularly watch out for the fantastic street art. you can visit the Penang state museum (only 1 Myr) or the slightly more expensive ...
