Motor Bike trip through Malaysia

Posted by samuijimmy on 9/6/2011 at 21:46

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 ...

B-day evening in KL?

Posted by amz155 on 11/6/2011 at 05:37

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 ...

Hey y'all! 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! ...

Taman Negara or Sarawak for nature?

Posted by WDCtraveler on 23/4/2011 at 01:22

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 ...

East Coast of Malaysia in August

Posted by starfish on 17/2/2011 at 19:36

Hi there 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 ...

Markets: KK/Kuching/KL?

Posted by amz155 on 2/6/2011 at 08:51

We like to wander markets at night....everything knick knacks, to food hawker stalls, the local wares. I read about the Gaya St. market in KK on Sundays. Are there other markets in KK, Kuching, KL we should check out as we wander around at night? Not looking to buy anything in particular, just like to pass the time people watching, getting a cheap beer, cheap food, and try our hand at bargaining for the odd doo-dad. Thanks. ...

Bukit Bintang OR Chinatown

I'm trying to find a place to stay in Kuala Lumpur for 2 nights after our international arrival from Canada. Can anyone help me narrow it down to either the Bukit Bintang area OR Chinatown? We are looking for something that's well located to night markets, food stalls (for night) and well located for sight seeeing within KL during the day. Also, we'd like a room for two adults for about ~$35USD (less would be better, lol). I've read about Tune, Grocer's Inn, etc. but I'd like to make sure ...

Malaysia Travel Timing

Posted by teamika on 28/4/2011 at 00:01

I am returning to SE Asia this fall and wanted to start this trip in Malaysia, having never been there before. Looking at the peak travel/tourist seasons and the monsoons I was thinking of arriving in September, spending a little time on the peninsula and then most of October wandering from Kuching to Brunei and then flying back to KL and on to other destination in SE. Maybe Vietnam or where ever. Air Asia makes it SO easy and cheap. Anyway... I am travelling alone and can figure out places ...
