Penang, Malaysia - Lone Pine, Batu Ferringhi

Penang's weather is a lot like the other parts of Malaysia. It's very hot and very humid...

We arrived at the Lone Pine Hotel in Batu Ferringhi, Penang before check-in and had to kill time :) - see picture below of Jeremy relaxing in a hammock tied to tall trees within the grounds of the hotel. It was rather pleasant.


We didn't do much on day 1, just gathering useful information like access to the internet, transport, food places, etc. We checked out the night market which operates along the main road offering a variety of goods like fake designer watches, clothes, art pieces, fake designer handbags etc. Food was aplenty from tacky bars and restaurants offering local and western food (this could mean anything - from baked beans, bacon, sausages, steak - that is not a traditional local cuisine), and a hawker center close-by which was bustling. We had quite a long wait for our food.
