Deckhand

Posted by Deef on 6/12/2013 at 00:39

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone would be able to offer me some advice on working as a deckhand. I want to travel to Europe without flying but I haven't got enough money to travel as a passenger on a freighter or cruise. I haven't got any working boat experience but I would work for free and even pay towards food costs. I am not afraid of work and am an engineer by trade with experience in car and bike mechanics. I can cook a decent meal for a large number of people, I can clean or I could se ...

KLIA-LCCT to Melaka by bus

Posted by Babalugats on 20/11/2013 at 07:25

Hey. I plan to visit Melaka next June, and I wonder if there are buses at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal, which travel to Melaka. Or is taxi the more-sensible option? I get conflicting responses from colleagues and mates, so here I am, hoping you can help me on this. Thanks! ...

10 night trip to Malaysia in late October/early November

Posted by kpibear28 on 28/8/2013 at 19:40

Hello, We are visiting Malaysia for 11 nights in the end of October/early November. We are flying into and out of Singapore. We are looking for a mixture of culture and wildlife with perhaps limited time on the beach if any. -Is it worth trying to go to Taman Negara during this time? I know the Monsoon season would just be starting but we are hoping to beat it. Alternatively is it worth the effort to take a 2 hour flight to Sandakan for a river safari? We would also like to see Penang ...

Malaysian Borneo Itinerary help

Posted by finnreynolds on 4/11/2013 at 00:05

Hi, My fiance and I are currently three months into our SE Asia trip and recently arrived in Malaysia.

Our next stop is to be Borneo in two or three weeks time (mid to end November). We're trying to fit in various Borneo highlights after our tour of the peninsula bit of Malaysia but it's pretty huge and we're not sure what can and can't be missed. Current shortli ...

Posted by freiburger on 26/8/2013 at 06:46

I am planning to go to Langkawi in November and am just about to book my flights and accomodation. I am looking for some kind of beach bungalow type of accomodation ranging up to 250 Ringit.

Hi I am leaving for KL in 10 days and had a few questions as a first timer in SE Asia.. I have 3 weeks (full travel time) in total but also would like to see Thailand (parts) and Siem Reap.

Getting from Sandakan to Mt. Kinabalu

Posted by Seonach on 20/10/2013 at 09:26

Hi all, Does anyone know about getting by bus from Sandakan to Mt. Kinabalu? The guide book says the express buses from Sandakan to KK will drop you at the turnoff to the national park; is it much of an ordeal to get from there to where the accommodation is? We plan to stay somewhere outside the park for the night, before going on the climb. Thanks. ...

Malaysia honeymoon early november

Posted by catobleppa on 15/9/2013 at 15:15

Hello all, I'm organizing our honeymoon at the moment and we'd love to go to Singapore for 3 days + Malaysia for another 10 days more or less. Leaving on the 28th of Oct. until 11th Nov., we'd be in Malaysia the first 10 days of November. Our original idea was spending a few days visiting Melaka and KL (after Singapore) and then move to some island on the east coast. Unfortunately we've just discovered that it is monsoon season on the east coast, and many resorts and places will be closed in ...

Hi all, I have a question regarding both Perhentian and Tioman : how busy do they get in September? I have done a quick online search, made a few phone calls, and it seems most budget places (at least the ones mentioned online) are booked out. Do you think I could still just go to Tioman or Perhentian and find accommodation, or is that a bad idea? Thanks ...

Bario and Kelabit Highlands questions

Posted by klb5050 on 13/7/2013 at 05:46

Hello all. I am pretty set on spending around 4 days in and around Bario in the Kelabit Highlands in the middle of October this year. I just have a few questions. 1. How expensive is it for a solo traveller compared to other parts of Malaysia? Is it comparatively cheaper or more expensive? 2. How much can I expect to pay for a guide per day if I were to take a longer trek? 3. Is bottled water available to be purchased in Bario? I feel like it probably is, but I just want to be sure. If not, I g ...
