Where I stayed
Once on board we realised the fatal error with the bus idea, namely horrific traffic. We crawled to Chinatown with the inane commentary annoying us. Once off the bus we headed straight to a café for fry-up and juice (sensible me), chicken biryani and beer (tom) and beef pie and beer (fat mike)
The bus saga then got worse when we waited in the boiling sun for 45 minutes for it, and then it turned up with broken AC and commentary. We were therefore paying a lot of money to ride around very slowly in a sweaty bus and guess at what we were passing. We bailed and grabbed a taxi back to safety of the infinity pool. It was a great decision and so we then decided to get into our dressing gowns and not leave the hotel sanctuary again.
Room service was incredible. They brought a fully laid dining table on wheels with a heated compartment for the food below and we ate with the city lights spread out in front of us. The only other times we left the room were to venture to the pool area for another spin in the Jacuzzi and to the 3rd floor to pick out a DVD.
A fantastic end to what, despite the insane cycling, has felt like a mini holiday with Tom. I'm going to really miss seeing that Langkawi hat in my wing mirror and even more so the singing!
