I'm going to be stopping off in KL, as I fly from Siem Reap to Bali. I'm a bit pressed for time, but I'm thinking if I'm going to stop there anyhow, I might as well spend the night. Do you think it's worth changing money, getting out of the airport, finding accommodation, and then lugging myself back to the airport in the morning? Can I see and eat enough in KL in less than 24 hours to justify it?
I will be in Borneo in March next year and really want to visit Danam Valley. I'm struggling to find out about accomodation/ tours there. I love the look of staying at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge but quite expensive. Does anyone have any other recommendations or advice on how to go about the whole thing?! ...

Thanks in advace. ...

-day in the city (see Chinatown, museum, mosque, cat statues, etc.)

Also, can anyone recommend a company to book a kayaking tour with if ...
Doe sthe first week of September tend to get super busy in the Perhentians due to the Singapore school holiday?
I'm debating going either first week of September or last week of September. Pro of going the last week of September is to avoid the crowds but I'm not sure the weather will still be good as October approaches. ...
I live in Thailand and thinking of doing a motor bike trip down into Malaysia in July... (my own bike.... will get necessary paper work before hand! )
Just wondering if anyone has done motor bike trips around the Malaysia?
I know the roads in southern Thailand are generally very good (main highways & bi ways)... Would I be correct in assuming roads (at least the main roads in Malaysia would much the same?....)
I hate bus trips, as you pass so many interesting spots, where you just can ...
We will be in KL for three days after arriving from Canada.
One of those nights will be my finace's birthday. The trip will also be our honeymoon.
I'm wondering if people could give me ideas for how we could celebrate his birthday in KL? We aren't looking to spend a lot of money. And we are backpacking it so won't have fancy clothes. Is there anything fun we can do at night that doesn't involve a super expensive meal or require fancy clothes?
We will either be staying in Bukit Bintang or Ch ...
A friend and I will be traveling throughout SE Asia from October 2011-January 2012, during which time we plan to get PADI certified. We are planning to do the certification in either Indonesia or Malaysia, so I am looking for input on which one is better and why? Has anyone done a great program in either of these countries that they would recommend? What about cost comparison?
Thanks in advance for all of your input! ...
This May I'm taking a one-week vacation to Malaysia (as an add-on to a business trip to Singapore), with plans to visit Penang and KL for a day or two each. But this urban dweller and mostly urban traveler would like to leave her comfort zone and try a not-too-strenuous foray into the jungle to see animals, plants, and if possible, indigenous people. I've narrowed it down to Taman Negara or Sarawak around Kuching. TN would mean one less flight and probably more time in KL, but Kuching sounds l ...
We are a mixed age group (10 years to 50) spending 3 weeks on the East Coast of Malaysia in August. We initially wanted to visit the Perhentian Islands but are finding mid range accommodation almost impossible to book. We don't mind basic but it has to be very clean. Should we give these a miss and just head for Tioman or any ideas for other islands/beach resorts to visit. We don't want anything too touristy just nice beaches, good food and laid back atmosphere. Any help would ...
