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" ...

New to KL - Tour Advice and Recommendations

Posted by dmartora on 25/2/2017 at 18:10

Hi, I am hoping I can get some direction from some seasoned KL visitors or dwellers. 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?

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 ...
