Penang's historic architecture is centred mainly in George Town. Its rows of 100 year-old shophouses and colonial villas give George Town its distinctive atmosphere. Penang was the venue for several historical movies, such as Anna and the King and the French film Indochine.

The best way to capture Penang's mixed heritage is to stroll around town. The aged buildings are noted for their faded colours and crumbling walls. Old houses have columns or multi-coloured Peranakan tiles. The Aceh Mosque is the oldest house of worship in the city. The smell of incense drifts in the air amidst gold settings of Burmese, Thai and Chinese temples. The Khoo Kongsi is a traditional form of Chinese art with its delicately carved wooden panels. Other long-time occupants include elderly Chinese shopkeepers, colourful Indian food stalls and trishaws with their drivers.

Travel Tips for a Better Holiday Experience

No matter where you go in the world, plenty of small details will make the difference between an average holiday and one that you will remember fondly for a lifetime. It is all about traveling for a better experience and catering to your own taste; however from our own mishaps we are able to give many hints on how to explore the world easily and avoid stress.  Here they are

Have a Better Holiday Experience with These Travel Tips

1: Don’t be scared about delving into local street food. More often than not, the vendors are just as clean as normal restaurants and street food is a great way to learn about local culture without breaking the bank

2: Most holiday sickness stems from dehydration or sun stroke. Remember to drink lots of water and carry a bottle where ever you go, especially in hot countries like Turkey

3: Always be aware of opportunity crime. When most people travel, they tend to let their hair down and forget small safety tips such as not accepting drinks from strangers and keeping that wallet hidden out of sight.

4: Ring your bank or credit card provider if you are travelling abroad. When credit or debit cards are used in a different country, it will often flag a security breech. By informing your bank before you leave, you prevent the scenario of having your cards cancelled while you are abroad.

5: Don’t overpack because this just means more luggage to carry of which a lot you probably won’t use. Most locations and hotels also offer laundrette or clothe cleaning services

6: If you want to use wi-fi, look for the hotels that offer it free of charge. There are plenty of them across the world and only the luxury hotels charge for it. If needed, look around locally for restaurants that keep their signal open as well. They often display this on signs at the entrance

7: People who have the best travel experience never class themselves as foreigners. They view themselves as visitors eager to meet the locals, taste the food, and learn about the culture and traditions. Break out of your comfort zone and make the most of every country you visit.

Very happy with our Udrive car rental in Penang. The car was actually provided by Avis, which was good and they were easy to find at the airport. The price offered by Udrive was very good, and included nearly everything.

We bought the extra insurance from Udrive (the Allianz policy?) which turned out to be very lucky, as a stone flicked up from the verge and caused a huge crack in the windscreen. This is not covered by many car insurance policies, but the $400!! was luckily covered by the Allianz policy. Udrive helped us with the claim, which turned out to be quite easy and straightforward. We did have to pay Avis and then get reimbursed by Allianz, but we were only out of pocket for a matter of days. 

Avis acted very quickly and replaced the car for the last 24 hours of our rental, taking away the car with the cracked windscreen. Could not have asked for better service after a piece of bad luck.
