We’ve been in Penang for about a week. First, we stayed at a cute little place in an old shophouse that had been converted to a hotel. It was right in the middle of the old colonial historic district in Georgetown. It was a perfect location for exploring that area. Then we moved to a serviced apartment in an upscale, “suburban” neighborhood called Tanjung Tokong.
The first apartment was not so great, so we found another one on Airbnb and checked in yesterday. It is great. This neighborhood is between Georgetown and the popular beach enclave of Batu Feringghi. It’s a good base for exploring the island and offers many conveniences in terms of food, shopping, and entertainment. It is also much less touristy than historic Geogetown.
Anyway here’s a video we shot yesterday showing the apartment and our lunch. Enoy!
More catch-up posts coming soon, but right now we are headed to the Spice Gardens…
