We dropped by Hard Rock Hotel to have a look....that's the beach in front of the hotel. I supposed to have a jump pose but end up like this....funny right? Actually I'm holding nothing xoxo


 

The swimming pool in Hard Rock Hotel is impressive! If you are staying at ground floor, you can just jump into the pool right in front your room! What's more, the water is crystal clear!
   
 

The unique, open top buses equipped with live interactive commentaries by the crews. Not forgetting the WIFI service provided in the bus, unfortunately I was unable to connect when I boarded in the bus that day.

  5. Used to have this HOHO bus in Kuching, initiated by Sarawak Tourism Board but I think it has discontinued. Maybe lack of response or insufficient advertising.

    Now I know how to travel in Penang. I like free and easy. Less stress and can see more. Thanks for sharing, Emily.
