The Penang region

Penang Island has a great history of multiculturalism, and a fine example of races and religions comfortably living together, the architecture is so varied and the colours of daily life fantastic. In George Town there is never a dull moment, for photographers, it's truly heaven!

There is always something to see and do and never a shortage of people to talk to, a smile is all that is needed to start a conversation, plus the majority of Malaysians speak English. Anyone will tell you that Penang is one big kitchen! Half the Island seems to be cooking whilst the other half are eating, that, together with the shopping, makes it an ideal place to do both and so inexpensively!

Many web sites are available re. the tourist attractions. But plan to take in some of the major festivals, one of the 5 New Years! Christmas, Thaipusum, Bon Odori, Hungry Ghost, Nine Emperor Gods, just to name a few. Take a look at www.visitpenang.gov.my for a Calendar of Events

Packing for Penang is easy, the weather hardly varies, lows of high 20's and highs of mid 30's. even when it rains, its warm rain! We don't have a monsoon season, just a few more showers around Sept. Oct. So you can pack light and leave room to take home all the bargains!

Georgetown

Our properties are in the heart of George Town for those who want to really get to know their chosen holiday destination. In walking distance is the famous Blue Mansion Chong Fatt Tze, tours of the fabulous 1800's example how the 'haves' lived are conducted at 11am and 3pm.

The Peranakan Mansion, another lovely Straights Chinese home now housing a magnificent private collection of everything relating to that period and people. The Penang Museum, Sun Yet Sen Museum, The Clan Jetty's are fantastic, these homes built over the water are so unusual, each jetty belonging to a separate clan, Chew, Tan etc. and only those of that clan are allowed to live there.

Upper Penang Rd is the place to go for night life, night clubs, resaurants, cafes, bars aplenty, and on the last Sunday of each month a market is held under cover here, with fantastic hand made items, jewellery, antiques, art works etc. and entertainment and of course, being Penang, food, from 9am to 2pm. Chowrasta Market in Penang Rd (all day) is about 5 mins away and is just a riot of colours, this is the place if you want fabrics and next to that is the produce morning market from 8am to 11am, a must see.

Further down Penang Rd is the 4 way pedestrian overpass taking you to Komtar, the tallest building on the island, housing most of the Gov. offices and a viewing floor, worth seeing as it is only from above that you can appreciate what seems like small early shop lots from street level but from the 58th floor one realises that these narrow buildings, 15 to 20ft wide, can sometimes stretch back 150ft!

Next to this is Prangin Mall, everything you ever wanted in shoes, clothing, shoes, DVDs,computor games Playstation games, electronic equipment etc. deparment stores oh, did I mention shoes? And this is just some of the things to see, Penang is best seen on foot and that means at night as well, a whole new George Town emerges at night, all the food hawkers take to the streets and it is just one long constant eatathon!

By the way, the food and the water are perfectly safe to consume, in 8 years of living here and eating at just about every stall, we have never had a problem! If there is a crowd there, the food is good and so cheap, you can eat all day for about RM15!

Being an Island has the advantage of no matter where you are, you are never far from the sea, a short stroll from our property will have you sitting by the sea, eating and watching the sun set or going to the Spice Gardens, so cool under all the greenery and ovelooking the water. Or choose a day out at the many Beaches , but watch out for the sun!

"Perfect place to experience exotic city as one of the locals"

My husband and I stayed in Green House for 8 days in April on a well earned holiday. We found it via browsing the net and boy aren’t we glad we did! The house is everything the website shows and promises; spacious rooms, well provided facilities, all the utilities one needs for a home away from home. It had a very comfortable and homely feel and the beautiful historical architectural features throughout the house made it very pleasant indeed. Our bedroom had two tall cupboards for our clothes and the small laundry had perfect facilities for washing and drying them. Bathroom was cute with clean and spacious shower, and living room was very comfy with big sofas to lounge on and watch well provided cable TV with myriad of channels – and there was a big stack of DVDs too! Kitchen was a full size eat-in kitchen containing all the pots and pans and crockery needed – not that we cooked there many times as the temptation was just too much to eat out all the time! And yes, it had the airconditioning and ceiling fans in the main rooms, ensuring comfort even in the hottest of days. The location was handy too, just at the border of the Unesco heritage area in an area consisting of different types of houses and mixed shops, right in the middle of where local people actually live, work, shop and entertain. This is what we look for when away for a holiday, rather than staying in an area dominated by holiday makers and travellers. Transport options were close by too, for example buses to the beach resorts or to the city centre just around the corner. Although just stepping out of the door and starting to walk to any direction got us to interesting places too – this is what we did on most days. Little India especially was very close. The environment was exotic to us, and some shabbiness, uneven roads and walkways, time-weathered buildings and uncovered water drains only added to the feeling of being in “real Asia”. We loved the feeling of being independent and among the locals – the best way to experience a new city. We absolutely recommend this house for anyone who wants to experience an exotic city this way, almost like living there, with all the amenities and everyday luxuries we westerners are being used to!
