Georgetown- Penang

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Arrived by bus and ferry at the island. Hostel was chosen before, 16 Heritage directly in old town. So I prepared my phone for Über and it was simple fast and cheap. The hostel seemed clean and nice but …. to close to main road, no window shades for the night and toilet water was flushing and flushing and flushing. We ended up with the idea to change the location. In Malaysia you have to pay upfront so I was not sure if I would get my money back. But the staff was helpful and friendly so we were able to make it happen. I need to crawl my memories but can’t remember when we changed a location …… so now we stay at tjr NEO+ hotel which is only 10€ more expensive, have a quiet nice room and a roof top pool as a benefit. Last night food was great , a chinese restaurant where people were queuing to be seated, it was it well worth. View from the roof top

This morning Georgetown looked much more better than yesterday and we discovered old town , bought some stuff and saw the street of harmony where you can find a mosque, a catholic church , a chinese temple , a hindu temple and a buddhist temple all along same way. Really interesting 😉

Another attraction is the colonial quarter with an old english fort named Fort Cornwallis. Old cannons and walls to see, pretty. Best thing today was the 3D museum Made In Penang , which shows plastic images of ancient live st the island instead of pictures.  Second floor was funny , you were able to take pictures in front of wall paintings and it looks like real 😉 See me as the dragon fighter here


for tomorrow we’ll rent a scooter and see the Botanical Garden ….
