Today we moved into an apartment in Straits Quay for a couple of days. It is about five miles away from the noise and bustle of Georgetown and we can relax, almost put our feet up and make full use of the swimming pool.
First of all though we caught a ferry from Penang Island to the mainland. It cost about 30 pence each and only took about 15 minutes.
Once across at Butterworth we took a quick look, decided that it wasn't very exciting and got straight back on the ferry for the return trip.
We didn't mind though, as the whole point of the outing was the journey, not the arrival.
In the evening we went down to the hawker stalls at Gurney and Margs and Dave went for the adventurous octopus option, while I stuck to the steamed veggies.
