Malaysia for 15 days from Easter
17th January, 2014
Hi everyone! Over easter, I will be travelling with 3 members of my family in Malaysia for 2 weeks. We booked flights to Kuala Lumpur and return flights from Bangkok, as we wanted to do a bit of Malaysia as well as Thailand.
But now that i've read some of the awesome posts here, I am thinking of maybe only doing Malaysia?
Can anybody maybe recommend some great places - starting from Kuala Lumpur and then ending in Bangkok? Would greatly appreciate it, as none of us have ever been there. Thank you & safe travels to everyone

It rather depends on what you like to do - beaches and water sports, hiking, nightlife, food, culture, etc.?
One obvious itinerary is KL - Penang - Langkawi - one of the west coast Thai Islands - Bangkok (at that time of year the west coast rainy season hasn't really gotten going, so you're weather should be okay).
If you're more interested in Malaysia than Thailand (as your post implied above), you could do a circuit from KL - Cameron Highlands - Penang to hit some of Malaysia's top spots before you catch a cheap flight up to Bangkok for a few days. You'll also have time to fit in a few beach days if you like.
Hope that helps - have fun!

It depends on what interests you, but I would include a visit to Malacca.

Hi all, i am italian, sorry for my english...i hope to improve it . I went to Malaysia 2 times. In KL i stayed in chinatown, i think the best and cheap place of the city. This place is located near the old market and the metro, very modern and efficient. In 15 minutes is possible to arrived to the petronas tower. You can go to malacca with bus in about 2 hours. If you have time i suggest you to book a flight with airasia, very chips airlines. From KL you can found air ticket to Kota Baru for 40$. When you will arrive, you must take a taxy outside the airport for the jetty, 1 hours of travel. From the jetty you must take a fastboat to Perhentian Island, you will arrive in 20 minutes. This island is terrific, wild beaches and beautiful sea, clean water with fantastic colors. From Kuala Lumpur is possible to reach Cambodia ( Siem Reap ) It is the easiest and cheap way to reach Cambodia , always with airasia. In Siem Reap is located Angor Wat, one of the best place i ever seen. bye good trip !

My advise is to avoid Melaka during Good Friday and Easter as it get really crowded as most people especially from Singapore will go to Melaka as the Good Friday and Easter is realy grand there. With procession at the ancient church of Saint Peter. The roads wil be really jamed up
