It was the first day of Chinese New Year and we did not have a lot of things left to do in our itinerary. We decided to relax, enjoying the hotel while packing our stuffs. At around 10 we left the hotel for a last minute walk around George Town. We wanted to visit The Blue Mansion but well, it was closed for the New Year celebration.
Our day started early, despite staying up late the previous day. We were just too excited to explore Penang! We had complimentary breakfast at the hotel then walked to our first destination: Pinang Peranakan Mansion. It took us around 10 minutes to get there, very convenient.
We arrived in Penang Saturday afternoon, after a mere 2.5 hours flight from Jakarta. Upon arrival, we took Uber straight to George Town, where our hotel – Ren i Tang is located (I will review the hotel in a separate post!). George Town is one of UNESCO world heritage sites and a popular tourist spot. Since it was our first time in Penang and we only had 2 nights.. staying in George Town was perfect.
