This time was our first time in Penang and we wanted to spoil ourselves for a bit. We stayed at the best colonial-style hotel in town, named Eastern & Oriental Hotel. This hotel is renowned for a reason. Luxury with touch of colonial decorations with five-star cleanliness standard. The good friendly services. Of course, not forget to mention their superb and delicious breakfast buffet.
We stayed two nights in the suite connecting rooms. We felt very private and peaceful here. As we booked the suite room, we can as well get the complimentary afternoon tea in the club lounge located next to the swimming pool. Free flowing of wines and soda accompanied with light yummy snacks.

Penang is a town where Malayu and Indian life happily together. Therefore, Indian food in this town are great. In the afternoon, the first day we arrived in Penang, we had Indian food at Kashmir restaurant. It is quite pricey compared to any other Indian restaurant, However, the ambiance and food are pretty fine. They are all delicious especially those tandoori chicken and butter chicken.
After that we catched the traditional tricycle decorated with colorful flowers. It kinds of a-must thing to do in Penang. Bargain is needed before you jump in to this tricycle.
