This stay is perfect for those seeking an experience of living in an authentic house in Penang's Chinatown. The house is in the UNESCO heritage zone, which means any external renovations have to be in the true original style, meaning wooden shutters, tiled front verandah,...More

We didn't notice the bars on the windows or the doors before we rented. Double locks on doors, plus really nasty walk ways. All the neighbors also had bars and locks. The home itself is very nice except for really poor lighting if one would...More

About the neighbourhood
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 Sund...

How to get there
Airport: Penang International Airport: 20.0 km
Railway: Butterworth: 13.0 km
Ferry: Weld Quay: 2.0 km
By air is the most usual, Penang is well serviced by all the major and budget airlines, cruise ships also make George Town a port of call.

Many travellers arrive here as part of their Asian Experience, hence coming via Singapore, Thailand or Kuala Lumpur so as well as flights, there are long distance buses to suit different budgets but still very low cost, or hiring a car is another inexpensive option.

If you are arriving via Butterworth on the mainland, still part of Penang State, then you have a choice of the ferry or a bus, both of which terminate in George Town or if you are driving, the ferry also takes vehicles or travel via the 13 kl bridge connecting George Town to the Mainland.

Penang has a wide ranging and very economical bus service that covers the majority of tourist att...
