3 Weeks Malaysia late November / early December

Posted by nochnbier on 27/10/2010 at 14:36

I read it's rainy-season, so does it even make sense to go there? If it does, I'm happy for some tips If it doesn't, does anybody have any suggestions what to do / where to travel? I have been to Vietnam and Thailand. I had to skip Laos and Cambodia on my last holiday, but I'm not sure if it's worth to fly over to SEA only for these two... How about Indonesia? ...

Perhentians: robbery, it true?

Posted by Aloyacska on 22/5/2010 at 05:25

I hope the articles saying all this were very exaggarating and its safe to travel there:) Thanks!! PS: Im mo ...

2 weeks in Malaysia - itinerary advice please

Posted by slordan on 2/9/2010 at 19:17

Hi I'm going to Malaysia on 18 September for two weeks and I have not really put much thought into what I'm going to do. At the moment I only have my flight to KL booked. Places I am interested to see are KL, Perhenthian islands maybe Redang island also. And if I can fit Langkawi - I might go there too. but that might be trying to fit too much in? Am I better to stick to either east or west coast when I only have 2 weeks? Perhaps instead of going to Langkawi there are more interesting things ...

perhentians? should i go?

Hey all, I've read a few bad reports about the Perhentians - over-development, theft, drugs - I'm heading there mid-September and after reading these I am not too sure... Are there any Thai islands that they are roughly comparable to? Travelled widely there and am pretty aware you have to take the usual precautions wherever you go.. We are in our late 20s and looking to chill out in a few low-key beach bars and nice beaches.. my full-moon days are over.. would besar or kecil be best? Thanks! ...
