SE Asia Trip in 2018...Help with Malaysia

Posted by Chadster152 on 16/9/2016 at 22:16

Hey there! I'm planning a long trip (4-5 months) to Southeast Asia starting in 2018 with a friend of mine. We're planning on flying out of San Francisco, CA, and traveling to Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, then flying back to SF. I'm currently mapping out a route and I'm having some trouble with Malaysia. So far I have a plan of us coming up from Singapore to Johor Bahru, then to Malacca (Malaka?), then to Seremban, then to Kuala Lumpur...and that's where the i ...

Solo Female, looking for a chill spot for awhile

Posted by TerroirTravel on 25/9/2016 at 04:21

Hello, As the title says, I am a solo female traveler that has spent some time in SE Asia already, but not Malaysia, so I was hoping that you could help me narrow some things down. I'm looking to arrive around November, and my US passport allows me 90 days. I don't want to hop and jump to 50 places, and would ideally like to find a chill town to stay in (rent a flat?) for a month or so of that time. Things I like: good local food, spice! Sometimes being able to buy a bottle of wine instead o ...

From Bangkok to Georgetown with a bicycle.

Posted by fujimiro on 24/9/2016 at 02:14

Hi All, In a few weeks time, I'll be traveling to George Town from Bangkok by train. I plan to take my bicycle with me (renting a bike in GT is not an option) and I am wondering what the best course of action would be. A few questions follow. 1. From what I understand, the train from Hua Lomphong now terminates at Padang Besar, from where I need to take another train to Butterworth and finally a ferry to George Town. Please correct if wrong. 2. What is the policy for bicycle transport on e ...

Please be cautious hiking to monkey beach (why health insurance is the most important thing you buy

Posted by antoniamitchell on 16/6/2016 at 04:27

Hi everyone. The various write ups on the hiking path to monkey beach can make it seem quite easy (40 min, 30 if you're a fast walker, etc)... just a walk in the park. The reality is, despite the park having actually improved the trail in the past year or two, this is not the west. A large part of the trail is a narrow dirt and mulch track cut into the sides if a hill, occasionally litered with fallen branches, logs and rocks to step over or clamber over. All it takes is one hiking boot slippi ...

Motorbiking Malaysian Borneo or Sulawesi

Posted by Abi2016 on 5/6/2016 at 02:39

Hi all, I am looking for a travel buddy to join me on a motorbike trip around either Sulawesi (Indonesia) or Malaysian Borneo. I am relatively flexible in terms of my travel options, and haven't decided yet which of the two would be best.

I am a 27 year old female from the UK. Im travelling alone, and have previou ...

border crossing by bicycle

Posted by mumpat on 16/11/2015 at 04:21

I know that being holder of a Belgian passport I'm granted a visa-free entry to Malaysia for 90 days. But, as I am travelling by bike I will cross the Thailand-Malaysia border over land. Last year I had a bad experience at the Laos-Thailand border where I received a visum for only 15 days because I arrived in Thailand over land (when you arrive by plane you receive 30 days). So, I want to know if I cross the border over land I will get the same Visum on Arrival (90 days) as someone who arrives ...
