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 ...

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 ...
I am looking at 2D1N Mt Kinabalu trek, however being a solo traveller I'm stung by single supplements. Looking for someone to take a hike with me any dates between 26th Sept –> 3rd Oct. Think Borneo Trails are doing 2pax for RM1360 a person (better than 1950 for single person). Let me know if you're interested I'm a solo Traveller from England.
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 ...
For you who doesn't know me, my name is Steve.
Well, i'm just going to be as quick as possible, so let's get start.
2010, was a fantastic year for me, because it's the time and the first time i'm going to Bali.
Bali is such a great place to stay, especially for the trip. The scenery of beach, mountain, through the village, and all, it's amazing. And don't forget to mention : Balinese food. Food in Bali is really, really amazing, with so much spice to complete them all. I remember eating aya ...
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. From what I've read online, long term motorbike rental (for up to a month) seems to be possible in both places. The dates I'm thinking of doing this are (approx) 17 June - 17 July.
I am a 27 year old female from the UK. Im travelling alone, and have previou ...
Hi all, I'm currently in penang alone - from 30/06/2016 to 5/7/2016, I will hopefully be travelling through most SE Asia countries within the next couple of months and happy for any itineraries. Just wanting someone to see the sights with and share the experience! Thanks ? Have a nice travelling ...
Hey y'all! Super easy and fast visa process in Penang , Malaysia for a 60-day single-entry Indonesian tourist visa for Indonesia.
60-day single-entry Indonesian visa process in Penang: I stayed at a clean, affordable hostel in Georgetown (Couzi Couji) and took the 101 bus from the (Jedi/Jetti?) ferry / bus terminal. Maybe about a 30-40 minute bus ride. Get off at Gurney Drive on the corner of Jalan Pemenang and Jalan Kelawai. If you're going in the direction of the bus and looking at Jalan ...
I'm going to Malaysia in 7 weeks time.
My plan is to visit Langkawi, Penang, Melaka and KL. I have 18 days and I would like to stay at a nice east coast beach town. The reviews I have seen for hotels on the Perhentian islands really put me off. Can anyone recommend a nice east coast place to stay? Somewhere for 3 or 4 days relaxing by the sea. Not too far from an airport. I will be flying in from Penang, then heading to KL after.
Thanks in advance

We are a couple in our late 50s and are interested in recommendations for Sabah. We would like to see natural highlights but wont be climbing KK or anything too strenuous.
Does anyone have any recommendations on destinations, great accommodation or other sources of info?
We are travelling to Malaysia for three weeks in Dec/Jan. We have 10 days in Borneo and from Dec 31 to Jan 8 in KL, Langkawi and Penang . We are a family of four with two children (5 and 3).
- With only 9 days, what would you recommend in terms of seeing two or all three of these locations?
- Is 2 days in KL (farm in the city, towers, city center park), 4 days in Langkawi (beach, spice garden?) and 2 days in Penang (sight-seeing around town) enough? or would you do it differently?
-How dif ...

Would very much appreciate help with regard to driving in Malaysia, scenic backroad, hazards and itinerary in general
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 ...
What was meant to be a 2 hr layover now turned into a 4 day holiday in the Malaysian capital (Don't ask lol). Been to KL before and did all the major touristy things so now I'm looking for suggestions more about the cultural, artistic, gastronomical aspect of this city. I'm thinking good food places (cafes, street-food etc), quirky markets, eclectic bars, funky music venues, alternative galleries, places where locals actually go and maybe throw in some outdoorsy things to do such as h ...
