When In Penang: Part 1

Back in September I had to visit Penang, Malaysia, It's a 2 hours 40 mins flight from Surabaya with AirAsia Indonesia; for the record it is no longer necessary to be concerned about the safety, it was a smooth flight. For most people Penang is all about the seafood, every corner of Penang is full of fresh-from-the-ocean shrimps, crabs, scallops, etc. But I was there for my grandparents who needed some medical attention at Gleneagles Hospital. As rumoured, their assistance is satisfactory and worth the fee, my grandparents are all well now, all ended happily.

I stayed at 2 different hotels, the first one was The Northam All Suite. One thing I adored about this hotel is the fact that they have jacuzzi in every room and it is quite spacious. My favourite spot is definitely the pool. We stayed for 2 nights here. This hotel is literally back-to-back with Gleneagles Hospital. In case you need more information click here.

The second hotel is Maritime Waterfront Hotel. We were very lucky to receive a free upgrade to the Family Suite room with Sea View and 2 bedrooms. I totally recommend staying here, each room is more like an apartment unit complete with minimalist kitchen along with the appliances, dining table, spacious living area. Did I tell you that it's a 2-storey room? The master bedroom is at the upper storey facing the floor-ceiling window to the ocean. This hotel is about 20mins cab ride to Gurney area, here's the link to the site.

Look out for my next post! I will go over my shopping haul or maybe I should say 'my most recently catched preys'.
