December 15 - January 15 at Malaysia
1st July, 2010
Were staying a month in Malaysia. Celebrating christmas and new year there. So where should we go?
We would like beaches but not too quiet village but absolutely not too party place. Also sunny weather is close to our hearts.
Were on budget travelling so our night budget is 20e per night total.
Thank you for any help.

Yes, probbaly you could cover the whole of malaysian paninsula and\a bit of borneo's Sabah and Sarawak for a month holiday.
May I ask, what do you want to see really? Its very subjuective actualy and it all depends on what you wanna do and see. For starters, try head to Taman Negara from KL. The check off point is from Jerantut, where transportation may be arranged by the hotels at Jerantut or straight from KL itself. Stay in the jungle for a whille.
Afer TN, go the highlands at Cameron highlands. and then to Kota Baru. Visit the war muziuem if you are hstorically inclined. Forget perhentian , though its just south of Kota baru, as it will be in midst of Monsoon period. Instead, head west to Pangkor or Langkawi island. For christmas you may stay at one of these islands if sun and sea are your fav pasttime.Or else, head to mainland and get to Penang. Party at Georgetown.
Or if you rewrite your schedule, you may also spend christmas at Melaka. Nice little historical town, with old buildings anc cobbled streets.

Weather is nice in Langkawi that time of year. Pretty nice island. The second main beach, Tengah, fits your asks. But book soon, Langkawi is popular with holidaying Malaysians.

Penang is a great place to spend Christmas to get sun, delicious food, and of course lots of local culture.
