10 days in Malaysia

Posted by christay2009 on 6/8/2009 at 03:57

I'll be using KL as a hub in order to get home after 3 months [2 in china, 1 in Laos]. I was considering staying for around 10-12 days before flying home. I would prefer to keep travel to a minimum and 'chill' in just a few places. I was considering spending some time in KL before getting the train (?) up to Penang/George town/surrounds before heading back to KL then home! I would appreciate any input Thanks again ...

Help getting started

Posted by jonyd1 on 2/2/2011 at 04:16

Hey all - so I am looking at having about 2 weeks in Malaysia, and I was hoping for some advice on getting started with an itinerary (I am a bit lost...have done a fair amount of research, but I can't seem to get a handle on what would be best). I would be flying into, and out of Singapore. I would like to try to get a good mix of nature and the local culture - I have seen 2-3 days in Kuala Lumpur is probably enough? I have also seen people suggest a few days in the Cameron Highlands, as well a ...

Malaysian health care

Posted by heddenswest on 26/1/2011 at 12:38

I'm going to be traveling for almost 4 months this coming fall. I'll be starting in Bali and passing briefly through Malaysia on my way to Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Burma... I am in the process of determining which vaccinations I need to get but they are expensive and not covered by insurance where I am currently living. Malaysia ostensibly has good health care. Can anyone comment? Any thoughts on getting vaccinated there (Hep A, typhoid, maybe Japanese encephalitis?...)? I'm also c ...

The historic centre of Malacca was inscribed on the World Heritage List on 7 July 2008 together with George Town, the capital of Penang. The Malays who are the original settlers of Malacca since 1400, form the largest community. The Malaccan Malays are rich in culture from their daily life to the building arts. The famous Malacca Steps or Tangga Melaka are common in front of many Malay houses in Malacca.Two of the most important museums in Malacca are the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum and the ...

Traveling through Malaysia by Train (to KL)

Posted by ginger1 on 27/12/2010 at 10:40

Hi! My boyfriend and I are hoping to train our way back down to KL after 2 weeks in Southern Thailand / islands. I know the most direct route (?) is to train from Hat Yai along the west coast down to KL. I saw in another posting on here that someone suggested a different train route through central Malaysia called the "jungle railway." Can anyone recommend one way or the other? We are definitely hoping to stop at at least one or two places on the way down - we will give ourselves 3 ...

Thaipusam festival question

Posted by hypersigil on 16/11/2010 at 09:19

I am going to be arriving in KL on Jan 19, 2011 for the Thaipusam festival at the Batcave near KL, which takes place this year from Jan 20 - 22. I was wondering if anyone here had experienced this festival before and could let me know if it is worthwhile staying for the whole thing, all three days, or if it is rather repetitive after a while. I don't have very long at all in Malaysia. If you think that the whole festival is not worth staying for, which day should I go -- the first, or last? Any ...

Will be traveling for 3 months in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia and have already purchased a round trip ticket flying into Kuala Lumpur and flying out of Jakarta. Not sure yet how I will be traveling between the countries but will most likely be flying on Air Asia. It seems that all of these countries require proof of in/OUT tickets. Will I be granted a tourist visa if I don't have proof that I am leaving the country? I have not yet been to any of these countries and don't know how lo ...

I'm a traveller/photographer & live on Ibiza, (for 10 years ) considering moving to another island, in Asia. Looks like Langkawai might be a good option, but I have only read about people holidaying there for short stays. Has anyone stayed there for months, or a year ? Would like to know if there are any europeans living there, and approximate cost of renting a house (preferably) or apartment annually. Also the climate, what is it like over 12 months ............. is there a heavy rainy sea ...
