Red Garden – Penang

I have mentioned it a few times on this blog, but I really love the island of Penang in Malaysia. Ok, the beaches aren’t the best in Asia, but this is made up for the fantastic food Penang has to offer. I have been going...

Old Penang townhouses

Cheap and delicious food

I am in Penang right now and one of the things I love about the place and Malaysia in general is the food. You have the choice between Indonesian, Malay, Chinese and Indian. It is a real melting pot of cultures with Muslims,...

Langkawi to Penang

Moving on today from beautiful Langkawi, I took the ferry to Penang. We made a brief stop at Pulau Tuba island, which is a popular place for diving. Next time I think I will stop off for a couple of days because it looks like a...

Last day in Malaysia

I am about to get on a plane to Shenzhen. It is about a four hour flight. I am flying on Air Asia and they fly from a smaller airport away from the main airport in Kuala Lumpur. The facilities are still ok, and they have free...

Kuala Lumpur

Took the bus from Penang to Kuala Lumpur. The bus had only three seats to a row, and were more like sofa chairs. It also wasn’t busy which is also a plus. Hotels are more expensive in the capital and budget places are...

Malaysia: a very under-rated destination

I caught the ferry back to Penang today, about a two and a half hour trip. I have been in Malaysia for around 10 days and I really like the place. I always thought that it was more expensive than other South East Asian...

Langkawi pictures

Langkawi has some very beautiful beaches and it is a great place to get away from it all. The whole island is a duty free zone which is great if you like shopping. I don’t like shopping but I do like the cheap imported...
