Hey thanks for checking this out, any feedback would be much appreciated. Wanting to hire a car, and drive from either Singapore, or Johor Baru, up the east coast to either Kula Besut or slightly further north Kota Bharu, stopping at a few places on the way.

Petronas twin towers--hassle free visit?

Posted by amz155 on 12/6/2011 at 08:48

I've been reading up a bit about Petronas towers. It seems that visiting the towers can be a real ordeal. Between being there early to line up to get a ticket, to the possibility of being able to buy advance tickets, to waiting around all day to see the towers, to the skydeck vs. the observation deck.... ....Is it really more effort than its worth? This will be our first time in KL and we'd love to see the towers and go up to the obesrvation deck and skybridge but is it really worth the wait? ...

Langkawi to Ko Lanta

Having struggled to find specifics for this leg of my trip I've put together a summary of to to get from Langkawi-Ko Lanta together with the costs. It is possible to buy an all-in ticket for the journey to Lanta from an agent on Langkawi, but if you wish totravel independently then the following was correct as of late October 2011. As a simple comparison, if the all-in ticket from Langkawi-Lanta costs over 100MYR door to door, then you can doit cheaper independently. To make the journey from ...

Alternatives to KL for 24hr layover

Posted by NT1979 on 15/12/2011 at 10:02

Hi everybody. Thanks to Airasia changing my flight times for my upcoming trip in January, I am stuck with a 24 hour layover in KL Airport.

Are there any good destinations, accessible via public transport/taxi etc from the airport, that are suitable for a short-ish trip. (for info, we arrive at 2 ...

I'm not interested in heading to the beach, and I will have already been to Melaka. I was thinking of a day trip to the Batu Caves, though. I was thinking 3 days in KL and 4 days in Penang.
