Langkawi accommodation for first time solo traveller..

Posted by lp4eva1 on 20/6/2017 at 17:55

Hi all, I'm travelling to Malaysia in August and spending 9 days in Langkawi , but really struggling with accommodation choices! I'm looking to split my time in 2, 4 nights where I can explore and be close to things (I'm planning on visiting the Marine park for Diving weather pending) and the final 5 nights somewhere quiet and relaxing, where I can laze on the beach and/or check out rainforest. Not a big party person, so looking for a chilled out vibe, preferably with minimal children around. ...

Islands good for seclusion and diving?

Posted by luoldeng9 on 3/6/2017 at 04:30

I am in Bangkok now for another week and then plan to spend about a week at a beach/island. My guess is that the islands in Malaysia have the better weather in June than Thailand and the Philippines. I want to stay at an island that is secluded with fewer tourists and a Robinson Crusoe feeling I also would like to see wildlife like turtles if possible, but it's not a deal breaker. It would also be nice if I could go scuba diving. I've been to El Nido at Palawan a few years ago and loved it. It ...

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" ...

We are a family of 6 (5 Adults and 1 child) travelling to KL in mid-April for a couple of days on the way to Cherating Beach.

Recommended connection time in KUL?

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 ...
