ANYWAY, back to telling you about Penang… Nek and I have been to there together twice now and I have to say I really like it. It’s a Malaysian island (and State) and that time we stayed in Georgetown, the spot with the most little hostels… We’ve actually been to Penang together twice now, but I actually go quite often, and will be heading back there again this September for my visa… so if you’re a past client and are in Penang and want to meet up, send me an email!! I love catching up with you all!
Our trip started from Samui, as you may be able to guess, haha! We booked the trip to Penang from one of the many tour/travel organisers on the island, which means we got to take the ferry across to Surat Thani…
When we got to Georgetown, we found this nice old hostel that I had stayed in on my previous trip there alone, got some delicious INDIAN food for dinner and chilled out for the night.
This restaurant was so busy, we thought maybe we should have tried the breakfast there!
….But the day we went there, there wasn’t much happening at the beach and the weather wasn’t that great so we decided to go straight to the Teluk Bahang National Park.
Acting the part of tourist is fun, especially when it’s a great excuse to get lots of photos of each other, haha!
There were fishing houses floating in the sea, and a storm brewing!
The only thing was it was, it started raining quite heavily when we were half way there on another beach, so we decided to head back out when the rain slowed down.
Here’s one of the cute guys who guided the way for us!
After a full few days of doing stuff, we ended the day by walking the gorgeous streets in Georgetown and finding some nice places to chill.
Micke’s Place was so nice! The owner, Micke, is so friendly to everyone visiting his shop and is there to offer any travel tips from his own experience. We had dessert there and it was SO DELICIOUS!! We had a crepe with orange flambé and chocolate and ice cream and a few drinks. Highly recommended!
This was the deciding factor; Nek fell in LOVE with these lights haha! So we luckily were about to get a table just before they were closing, and get some photos of their inspiring decor 🙂 Nek loved them so much, he wanted to use these lights at our Bar, or house! I think they are pretty cool too!
Have a lovely and happy mid-week, Wednesday!
