A 3 week trip from KL to southern thailand best beaches/islands ands back???
15th January, 2013
Me and my friend are thinking about planning a 3 - 3,5 week trip to Asia. (Malasia - Thailand)
in March/April . the main purpuse of the trip is relaxing at the most beautiful beaches. eat good food and a little sightseeing.
and we dont wan''t to have the idea of hurrying.
We think to fly (From Amsterdam) to Kula Lumpur. and stay there for 2 or 3 days . and from their up to thailand.
who knows a good route, and nice places to visit . andd tell us what the easiest way is to get on those places. (Plain,boat,bus,train???)
some places we are thinking about are langkawi , Pangkor , Pengang , koh lipe , koh lanta , koh pipi and finaly from phuket or something straight back to KL...
who can give us some good advice about what is the best route / travelplan / accomodations etc etc
thank you verry verry much

Check here for the beaches:
Skip Pangkor which sucks and Phuket because it's overdeveloped (feeling like Rimini or Mallorca).
Overland transport (bus) is easily possible if you limit yourself to the peninsula and skip Borneo. Borneo is interesting but if you also want to do Thailand, there is no time.
A route could be KL, Cameron highlands, Pinang, then from there island-hop until Krabi, over to Koh Samui, then back to Malaysia, possibly doing Perhentian, Redang. Possibly Taman Negara (rainforest) and Melaka (colonial heritage).
Limit the list of places you want to see to 6 or 7.
For CH 1-2 days are sufficient, for Pinang 2-3, Melaka can be done as an overnight stay, 2 days are enough for Taman Negara. On the islands/beaches you can choose yourself how long you'd like to stay.
The best beaches are the following:
Perhentian and Redang (Malaysia)
Koh Samui and other islands in Thailand (check my photos)
