Penang Trip-Day 1

Day 1

Our cab came about 6.45am to pick us up to the airport. We (me & my niece) reach airport almost 8am. After check in our luggage, we going to have our breakfast at Marry brown..don’t really like their morning breakfast. Our broading time at 9am and our flight at 9.40am (on time).

We reach Penang about 10.30am, walking around to look for the company to rent a car and we found the cheapest on at HERTZ- RM103.30 per day after discount. We rent it for 3 days about RM310.60 including tax and insurance. We rent Hyundai I10, is a very nice and small car, that we like and is easy to drive.

We wait for about 10 min , cos they need to wash the car before giving to the customers. We need to fill up the petrol when we return to car otherwise it will charge quite expensive (according to the customer service). Using wave or GPS to bring us to the NEO + Penang, where we staying (near town area). Is was surrounded by all the shopping malls and normally is all walking distance. We reach the hotel at 12.30pm, lucky we can check in early since we requested a Family Room. Our room no is 802 and is on the 8th floor…restaurant is on the 2nd floor while the swimming pool is on the 25th floor.. you can see nice view from there. Is hotel was newly open, the environment is very nice and clean. The staff was friendly too. (my review was post in trip advisor ).


We took our crazy photo in our room before heading out for lunch. We don’t have any clue where we take our lunch, we just walk around the area and spot some hawker stalls where they selling delicious “char keow thau” and a few more delicious foods, even though is just a hawker stall but pack with people who enjoy every minutes of it.


After our lunch we going to the shopping mall to get some drinking waters for a couple of days. Then we walk back to hotel before we going to Street Arts in Lebuh Armenian (Armenian Street). Is all about walking distance, you can see those art on the walls after a few block away from each street. Even some shop renting out bicycle to the tourists. The streets is the venue of the weekly Armenian Street Fair. Along the street you can found quite a lot of accommodation, restaurants and sights seeing. If you do walk to the end of Chew Jetty, you’ll see the remnants of Ernest Zacharevic’s Children in a boat mural on the side of Chew Jetty Vacation Home…but it’s gone.


There still have a lot of street to walk around but due to distance we decided to heading back to our car since cloudy. When we reach, the rain started to rain heavily. Thank god!!!!

We had our dinner at Perangin Mall @ Saffron, is actually a steak house and the price is reasonable, we have free buffet after we had order 3 main courses. Before dinner my niece & my cousin going for a swim even thought is slightly rain. The night view is beautiful when all the lights is on. We didn’t walk much at the mall because is kinda of late, most of the shop was close for a day.
