Malaysia in February - Diving, Eating, Hiking/Climbing
16th January, 2014
my name is Isabel, I'm 23 years old and from Germany. I'm currently living inBeijing since beginning of September for a student exchange year. Actually I'msupposed to study a lot of sometimes hardly interesting engineering stuff but Ireally wanna discover a bit of Asia so my personal motto might vary a littlebit from the Chinese one "work hard, study hard"
I’ll fly to Hong Kong on 20thJanuary and stay there until the 26th. Then I’ll fly to KualaLumpur. My next flight is on 12th February from Penang to KotaKinabalu. To be honest I don't really have planned something concrete yet and that’sthe part where I would very much appreciate your help! Generally I was thinkingabout Scuba diving on Palau Perhentian, but I’m not sure if the time is alreadyappropriate to do so. Do you maybe have any recommendation where it is best togo to for getting a SCUBA license during this time of the year?
I heard Penang has great food, what issomething I can enjoy very much (huge foodie) so I’m kind of planning to eat myway through the street markets there. I’ll fly from Penang to Kota Kinabalu on12th February.
In Kota Kinabalu I’d like to do somekind of hiking trip, maybe climbing if possible and if I can still carry my ownbody weight after all the food in Penang
I’ll leave Malaysia from Kota Kinabaluon 19th February and fly to Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam).
If you have any recommendations Iwould be very thankful to hear them. Maybe if some of you guys should happen tobe in Malaysia during that time we could let our paths cross over there!?
Thank you already for reading my post!

I fly into KL on Feb 4 with no concrete plans except my 1st 3nights hostel in KL!
I definitely want to climb Kinabalu and hopefully hit Gunung Mule for a couple of days.
Nothing booked yet though.
Let me know if you are interested in meeting up.

I finished my open water on Mabul Island with Scubajunkie.
Try to contact them in advance in regards to permits for Sipidan.
Overall it was a great experience.
