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 ...

Malaysia Itinerary

Posted by mark_mcc85 on 23/11/2011 at 08:07

I have just arrived in Kuala Lumpur and plan on just spending one full day here (maybe two). After KL I will get a bus either at the end of day one (2moro night) or possibly sometime in day two to Melaka , spending about 2 days here. From Melaka I plan on travelling up to either the Cameron Highlands or Taman Negara. Most likely Taman Negara as I read on TravelFish that C ...

Planning on Climbing Mt Kilabalu

Posted by Rossigray on 11/10/2011 at 09:59

Hi, I'm flying out to Kota Kinabalu on the 6th November and was hoping to Climb Mt Kilabalu. Just from looking at a range of information provided on the internet has gotten me a little confused of what I need to arrange prior to arrival. Can anybody help and state what is needed to be booked beforehand and what I can book whilst I am there? I already have a hostel booked for my first night. Can I book it all from the hostel or is there a cheaper alternative? I'll only be in Borneo for a total of ...

Steel-toed Boots a Problem?

Posted by kejumonyet on 20/11/2011 at 20:32

I've posted this in the Indonesia forum also, here: I will be travelling alone to Indonesia and Malaysia in a few weeks. I always wear steel cap boots as I find them comfortable and I'm used to them, but my parents are afraid that I might get hassled by police while I'm over there. Has anyone had this experience or heard of this happening? I am not expecting that I'll be let into nightclubs with them on, so I'll be ...

KL to Butterworth by rail

Posted by nightowlers on 20/9/2011 at 12:50

Arriving by air in KL, and plan to travel to Thailand and Laos. Rather than fly to Bangkok, we are considering the rail option, possibly spending a few days in Penang before continuing north. Would love to hear from anyone who has travelled by rail to Butterworth, as to their experience. As we know KL well, and will stay there en route back to Australia, we are thinking of taking the train the same day we arrive. We arrive in KL around 12:30pm. Believe the sleeper to Butterworth leaves KL at 2 ...

How to get to diving in Brunei and Borneo...

Doing research now but any help would be appreciated. I am currently in Koh Tao, Thailand, diving, but am probably heading off in the next day or so back to mainland, and then heading towards Singapore to meet a friend. From there, I was hoping to make my way to Borneo area (Sipadan, Layang Layang, Lankayan Island) to get some diving in but I am not sure how to get around once I land in Brunei (I found cheap flights to there via AirAsia)... All I know so far is that I would have to fly from Kua ...
