What You Could Get in Penang for $10 – Enjoy the View of Penang from the Top at Penang Hill

First of all, I would like to apologize for the late post of this week’s $10 series. It’s not that I wasn’t aware of this, because I really was. It’s just that the circumstance didn’t let me publish this post on time.

I was planning to come back home from Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday, only for me to find out that I booked the wrong flight which departed earlier in the morning. As a result, I got panic, I had to extend my stay for one more night and buy a new return ticket. All those things, with a lot of things to do work-wise.

But here I am… Back to the $10 series, as now we’ve got Priyanka of On My Canvas to share with you how to spend $10 in one of the cities that I visited recently, Penang.

Hotel Around KLIA/KLIA2: Bary Inn Hotel, an Affordable Place for a Short Layover Near Kuala Lumpur International Airport

Hi everyone!

As some of you probably know, I’m currently on the Indochina trip that I had been longing for so long. And for exactly the same reason, I kept procrastinating to update my blog post with fresh content about my current journey. Like, I’ve had plenty of stories to tell yet I’m too lazy to start one, to begin with. What is life?! 😛

So, now that I’m in the mood to actually work, I decided to finally start my first post covering a piece of my journey.

And the first post would be a review about a hotel where I stayed for my short layover in Kuala Lumpur before heading to Saigon the next day. If you know me personally and you’ve talked about traveling with me in person, then you probably know that Kuala Lumpur is my favorite city to have a layover for so many different reasons.

One of them would be the option to pick a place to crash during a layover for a good price. So, after reviewing Capsule by Container in KLIA2, this time I’m going to review one of the hotels around KLIA/KLIA2 that could be your next choice for a layover in Kuala Lumpur.

It is a convenient place to stay with an affordable nightly rate. What more do you need?

Try Destinations A Bit More Off the Radar

It’s easy to be so cautious when choosing a destination for your next holiday. A lot of people like to go for the same sort of holiday destinations because they know what they’re getting.

You can’t really go wrong with an all-inclusive in Europe. They’re pretty much safe, the hotels are great, and you know exactly what you’re getting when you’re going.

But this style of holiday is preventing you from seeing the world in a different light. There is just so much to see and do out there, you shouldn’t keep yourself sheltered behind the doors of an all-inclusive.

Instead, you should have a read of the holiday destinations that we have below, and see if you’d like to go for any of them.

FAQs Answered By a Woman Traveler: Traveling Solo Around Southeast Asia

Hi everyone!

So, in case you didn’t know, I’m finally back to Vietnam after 3 years. It was the first country that I visited as a solo traveler.

And while this time I kinda get used to doing everything alone when I travel, I understand as someone who comes from Southeast Asia region, some people just ask you a lot of questions about your journey.

Some ask questions out of curiosity, some do it because they’re inspired to do it too, while the other one has a little concern about the idea of you traveling alone. And that’s totally fine with me. After all, not everyone has their privilege to experience solo traveling, I guess?

Now that I’m in Chau Doc, I’ve got some spare time to write as I’ll be on my way to Ha Tien tomorrow, and then continue my journey crossing the border to Cambodia the next day.

This time, I’ll share with you some questions frequently asked about traveling solo in Southeast Asia. The questions that I often get asked, especially as a woman traveling alone around the region.
