Sur votre bicyclette, mate.
I jst spent three days in Penang and it was the first time in eleven years here that I actually went there by choice. Fantastic Indian curries, lovely people who speak English very well and the island is actually quite pretty despite the huge apartment blocks that are springing up all over the place.
Here's a few places that The Wife and I visitd:
And a few typical scenes in Penang
The cheapest pub in Penang
The Botanical Gardens

Nice one Leeds. Hope you had a good one and good for you for breaking the long-running ajarn.com visa runner traditional of moping around on Chulia Street for a day and a half. I did the same sort of thing in Chiang Mai once and aging one gave me so many reds that I nearly gave a toss.
Where was that exactly?
Now we're talking. I always stay on Gurney Drive in the Evergreen. Folk will say oo fok me that's a woeful beach, but who cares when you can eat some of Malaysia's finest food along that street. Enjoy.
great pics guys!
Tell us more about the Evergreen, Hodd. I love Gurney Drive area. Are taxis still without meters? How did you get around, Leeds?
Unfortunately exilegooner's link seems to have morphed into something not very interesting at all...

The Evergreen's just a decent hotel. Comments on tripadvisor.com sum it up well. It costs about RM200 a night for what must be approaching 5 stars. Apart from all the eating places along Gurney Drive, the Evergreen's in a crap location, and it's a RM12 (meterless) taxi ride into Georgetown.Originally Posted by Jon
Saying that, there's been a couple of changes. A new place called G Hotel has open next to Gurney Plaza, which sounds worth a stay. Also, although those RM12 taxi rides won't break anyone, I get fcuked off paying it knowing that even KL taxis are half the price. So, I'm well up for trying the new rapid penang buses whose routes include Gurney Plaza to Georgetown.
The Wife found a few more pics of Penang - these are from our trip three years ago.

walk up Penang Hill and take the jungle path down - some of it involves walking thru dried up rocky stream beds - some of them aren't dried up - don't wear flip flops - watch out for packs of dogs - 'part from that it's well worth it
