The Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang – Experience The Heritage Wing

The Eastern & Oriental Hotel (E&O) stands majestically along Farquhar Street in Penang and each time I pass by it, I’m always awestruck by its elegant beauty.  My fascination with the E&O started way back in the 1970’s when I first stayed in this grand hotel.  Yes, it was grand, even back then when I […]
