In June 2014, we visited Penang for the first time and we had the pleasure to getaway alone without the girls. Penang is quite a easy to go around place to visit and we are planning to bring the girls one day when they are older. This trip, we stayed at the Sunway Hotel Georgetown, Penang. The hotel is clean, easily accessible and modern, just the way we like it.

We were too hungry upon checked in so we ordered Lollipop Chicken for quick bite before heading out to the night market for dinner. These were quite tasty.

The tall building is Komtar Tower where the bus interchange is located. Walkable in less than 8 minutes from the hotel, or there are a few buses that will pass by the main streets near the hotel too. Tip: Check the nearby bus stops around the hotel, their bus routes are quite easy to understand, as there are only two main directions, traveling up and down the streets of Penang.
