hi, i’m an organising committee for a class trip (3 days 2 nights) to penang. we have not found a suitable place yet. there will be 35 participants and our budget per person for transortation & hotel is around rm150. i’ve searched online but none has given me an offer that i’m looking for. kindly drop me some suggestions

Penang Local Boy answers:

RM150 per person for the whole trip?? Hmmm… Not sure if it if possible, but I used to stay in Royal Hotel Penang for RM141 (for 2 persons without breakfast).

I just checked their website again, they are having a promotion for RM140 for 2 persons with breakfast, which comes to RM140 per person for 2 nights. Looks good to me. As for transportation, I have no information on that… Sorry…

My son was cheated by a hotel financially at Penang,Malaysia. Who should I contact to complain?

One hotel at Penang,Malaysia had offered a job and received huge amount through Bank transaction and after receiving the money stopped giving reply. He is not responding to our mails. We would like to lodge a complaint against the individual/firm. Please advise whom should we complain at Malaysia.

Penang Local Boy answers:

I think your son been conned / cheated or scammed.

If a company offering job/s.Why should your son pays them?your question is NOT complete in details.

If your son got a job offer from e-mail.he can says bye bye to his money .Always source the job/s offerings from legitimate websites.Not from emails whom you dont know.( also known as Nigerian scams )But if your sons job was by a local agent ( from your country ) you can approach his local agent.

Answer to your question is contact the press in malaysia.Maybe they might highlight your problem

Penang Local Boy answers:

Suggest you book only for the ist night online.
Following morning go hotel hunting for one you like. There are many beautiful hotel rooms available around US$50.00-75.00. Stay around Penang Road/McAlistor Road area for easy access to food and shopping.
