Some info on Redang island

Posted by tezza on 15/8/2011 at 17:52

Redang has some of the whitest beaches and best snorkelling on east coast peninsula Malaysia. Diving is pretty good too. But the most popular beach is crowded. BEST BEACH. Hard to say. The main twin beach area of of Pasir Panjang at the north end of the east coast would have been one of the best in Malaysia before development. Now it is packed with midrange resorts and has a holiday camp atmosphere with hundreds of middle class Singaporean /KL families and couples out to have a good time. It's ...

Cameron Highlands or Similar in December

Posted by mattspeak on 15/12/2011 at 15:00

Hi Thanks for reading! My partner and I have decided to do a week of a trip away from a beach (Koh Lipe) and we'd like to do a trek/hike through some amazing scenery – i would love to see miles and miles of rice paddy's – just to remind myself that im actually in asia. My partner wants to see some nature too...which shouldn't be hard! So, if we're coming from Penang – i guess it would be natural to suggest cameron highlands.... but I'm not sold – would it be wet wet wet around the st ...

Newish Borneo Budget Options

Posted by LJ on 15/12/2011 at 07:09

Thought I'd share some places there are bit new and improved for the budget traveler that I found on my recent visit to Sabah. Apart from Uncle Tans and Mescot these were all not here a few years ago and makes the chances to get slightly off the beaten track independently a little more easier in Sabah. If you are happy to hire a motorbike Go Go Sabah seems to be popular and the bikes reasonable value to hire and they are in KK. http://www.facebook.com/tampatdoamanKudat At the very tip of Bor ...

Langkawi, Malaysia - accomodation question

Posted by caseyprich on 11/10/2011 at 17:26

Hey all, Haven't been on the board in a long time as recently Travelfish has been blocked in China. However, at a friend's place with a VPN so need to ask some advice as I'm preparing for my Spring Festival trip to Langkawi. A couple questions: 1) What is the advice for things to do in Langkawi - I'm guessing beach, would like to hear any good ideas. 2) We've been recommended to stay at Panang Cenang. However, it sounds like that is the central beach, not very quiet. If you know of any ch ...
