Kuah town, Langkawi

Posted by gatoguts on 15/2/2017 at 01:19

I will be staying 3 nights in Langkawi and was thinking of spending the first night in Kuah. Is there anything redeeming about Kuah, or should I just head to one of the beach towns? If anyone has stayed in Kuah, I would appreciate your insights. ...

Malaysia - August 2017

Posted by pandd on 10/2/2017 at 18:04

Hi fellow Travelfish folks, My boyfriend and I (late-20s) are travelling SE Asia for 4 months come this June-September. We were planning on doing a month in each of the following countries (in this order): June: Cambodia July: Vietnam August: Malaysia September: Indonesia ... however in looking more closely at what each country has to offer, we're now thinking we may trim our time in Malaysia down to 3 weeks tops instead of the full 4 weeks. We would be in Malaysia during August... and are ...

Posted by Danila on 10/1/2017 at 00:34

Hi there, my husband and I, PADI AOW with 500+ dives, are planning to spend a couple of weeks in Semporna in April, and want to dive Sipadan and surrounding islands. We already have accommodation booked in Semporna, so we're not looking for a dive/stay package. Does anyone have any recommendations/recent experience of dive operators in Semporna who have permits for Sipadan please? Also, do you recommend that we pre-book, or just look for a dive place when we get there? I know permits for Sipad ...

Danum Valley or Kinabatangan Jungle Camp?

Posted by Danila on 29/12/2016 at 22:08

Greetings, still working on our itin for April/May 2016 in Borneo and Indonesia. Strongly thinking of several days with a combo tour through Kinabatangan Jungle Camp/Sepilok. Even thinking of adding on a few days at both, to relax a bit more. Then I read the article here on Danum Valley Conservation Area, and the 4 week suggested itin through Sabah, and Danum gets RAVE reviews! So, Kinabatangan is more within our budget, and Danum would be stretching the budget. Both sound "similar-ish" ...

Recommended connection time in KUL?

Posted by Danila on 30/12/2016 at 08:06

Trying to work out itinerary Malaysia/Indonesia. Currently looking at flying from Sabah (Tawau, KK?) to Bali. I see Air Asia and Malaysia Airlines with connections in KUL. Any thoughts on recommended connection times in KUL? I guess it's domestic to international, so we don't have to allow extra time to clear immigration, right? Any other suggestions on how to get from Sabah to "somewhere in Indonesia" - Bali, Java, Flores?? Thanks so much for any input! Danila ...

Solo Female, looking for a chill spot for awhile

Posted by TerroirTravel on 25/9/2016 at 04:21

Hello, As the title says, I am a solo female traveler that has spent some time in SE Asia already, but not Malaysia, so I was hoping that you could help me narrow some things down. I'm looking to arrive around November, and my US passport allows me 90 days. I don't want to hop and jump to 50 places, and would ideally like to find a chill town to stay in (rent a flat?) for a month or so of that time. Things I like: good local food, spice! Sometimes being able to buy a bottle of wine instead o ...

From Bangkok to Georgetown with a bicycle.

Posted by fujimiro on 24/9/2016 at 02:14

Hi All, In a few weeks time, I'll be traveling to George Town from Bangkok by train. I plan to take my bicycle with me (renting a bike in GT is not an option) and I am wondering what the best course of action would be. A few questions follow. 1. From what I understand, the train from Hua Lomphong now terminates at Padang Besar, from where I need to take another train to Butterworth and finally a ferry to George Town. Please correct if wrong. 2. What is the policy for bicycle transport on e ...

Please be cautious hiking to monkey beach (why health insurance is the most important thing you buy

Posted by antoniamitchell on 16/6/2016 at 04:27

Hi everyone. The various write ups on the hiking path to monkey beach can make it seem quite easy (40 min, 30 if you're a fast walker, etc)... just a walk in the park. The reality is, despite the park having actually improved the trail in the past year or two, this is not the west. A large part of the trail is a narrow dirt and mulch track cut into the sides if a hill, occasionally litered with fallen branches, logs and rocks to step over or clamber over. All it takes is one hiking boot slippi ...
