    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We wish to make friends with people all around the world because we love to. We used to be rental hosts and we have met many guests and eventually we become friends. We learned a lot from them via cultural exchange through conversation. Malaysia is a unique country with different ethnicity, culture and religion. You can stay with different hosts to understand more about our country.

    Our location is away from the town. It takes around 45 minutes to travel from my place to Georgetown. I will go back to my parents house once a week, which is located at Penang island. You can follow us and we will drop you at Georgetown for sight seeing.
