    Re: 3 Days in Penang, what to do?

    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:

    The Reservoir



    Penang Hill



    The Seafront



    And a few typical scenes in Penang







    The cheapest pub in Penang



    The Botanical Gardens



    The Wife looking as gorgeous as ever

    Re: 3 Days in Penang, what to do?

    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.

    [QUOTE=LeedsLeedsLeeds]The Reservoir


    Where was that exactly?

    The Seafront



    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
