... One was a retired doctor, who travel around Asia a lot. He worked in NY, currently lives in the Dominican Republic, and seems to have worked in lots of other places as well. We pumped him for all sorts of information about Asian countries we haven't been to yet, and Europe and the Caribbean . He has made me even more determined to spend some time in Morocco, hopefully next year. We met another young guy, who was travelling around Asia trying to ...
... houses whose rears fenced in a temple and stage and other amenities the clansmen used. The only entrance was secret and there is now a public entrance been created. You still can't even tell that there is all this hiding there now.
After the tour, Nadua went home and I had a big old nap. After catching up on the shut eye it was time to check out this festival. ...
... and from there we can reach Georgetown by ferry. We liked the name Butterworth so we decided to go (no really we had no choice so we decided to go). The trip was 1h45min long and we got dropped off right next to the ferry terminal. We made our way and waited and waited... The ferry came and there it was, the promise land: Georgetown.

TravelPod Member ReviewsGrand Continental Hotel - Penang Georgetown
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!
