Arrived Georgetown Penang on a short 3Days 2 Nights stay and had our accommodation booked at The Prestige Penang, constructed out of old shophouses and warehouses, to this amazing hotel. The hotel website features a detailed description that attracted us to stay here. When we arrived, our expectation was high. But gladly the hotel staff made us feel welcome the minute we stepped in. My first impression on whats around : seeing a small lobby area / shiny platinum checking in counter,the on site dining area right on the opposite side, the lounge area, & the arcade , they were all in a separate area of space unlike a traditional big hotels, making it uniquely prestigious!
So we have longed wanted to visit Malacca but never had enough time to spare each time when we are in the area. Its a 2 hour pleasant drive from Kuala Lumpur, though not on a cloudy and rainy day. Thanks to my college best friend, Flora, who made the arrangement and made this trip possible. We weren’t lucky enough to choose this day as it was raining intermittently all day through. Also thanks to Danny for guiding us on this trip. We had a wonderful lunch at Siew Tin’s Nyonya Kitchen to savor the Nyonya dishes. And here are some of the very colorful scenes I have ever taken in pictures.
Walking tour in Rio was a pretty good idea to do! This place is so amazing to visit and there is so much to see, its a much needed place to visit! You can see churches in every corner, I mean they are 18th Century churches with wonderful designs and structures. You can even have a chance to see the old gold plated church in Rio!
On the trail, Some of the sulphuric springs have dried up during our visit. The temperature was about 90F. Good to see this place again after the last visit 7 years ago.
Its always cloudy whenever we visit this place. There is always a crowd but each time we have a chance to be here or just passing though, this place stays majestic. Good to see these enormous sculptures again.
