Remember the famous Ali Feringghi Guesthouse by the beach up at Batu Feringghi Penang?
Ali Ferringhi Guesthouse Penang is one of the only few places that used to offer comfortable budget rooms by the beach in Penang.
Well it got burnt down together with Shalini Guesthouse Penang in a fire that started in the kitchen of the guesthouse. Luckily all the tourists were out at the beach when the incident happened.
The shitty part was, that this premise was illegal and didn’t have any insurance on the property. The last we heard was that there was an argument from the tourists demanding compensation for their belongings that were lost in the fire. Poor tourists, who had all their clothes, money, passports and id all burnt by the fire.
