Penang…second time around

Our second visit to Penang was better than our first, we found a nicer guesthouse called just inn which was kept super clean and was quiet ? we got the free Cat bus there ? It’s so handy as you can get it right near the boat pier ? We took the bus out to Penang hill and rode the funicular to the top. We were rewarded with a stunning view over Penang ? We decided to walk back down…

Langkawi take 2

So we sat in the bus station and booked our flight (for 3 hours time!) to Langkawi. Cost us the small sum of 20 euro (never got a last minute flight so cheap in my life!) Flying out of KL was something else, it’s like a city in the midst of a jungle, I was super happy to be soaring above it ? The landing into langkawi was just as special, flying over the sandy beach and seeing the mountain…

We took a look around the pretty town and got a bite to eat in the Indian…

George town, penang

We bought our tickets at the ferry terminal saving us a few ringgit rather than buying it from our guest house ? We had a tasty breakfast of yummy pastries from Bread Story and boarded our boat for George Town Penang. The journey passed quickly as a James Bond movie played on the screen and the views out to see were pretty. We arrived in George town in the early afternoon and set about finding a place to lay our…

langkawi ?>


We reached Langkawi in the afternoon and caught a taxi to the backpacking area of Cenang beach, The taxis are fixed prices in Langkawi so unlike the rest of Asia you won’t have to barter hard for a half decent price or even a half decent one lol! Most journeys around the island cost 30 ringgit for up to four people ? We arrived in the only backpacking area of the island at Cenang beach and searched high and low…
