Snorkelling off the beach Not large multi storey hotels, rather somewhere with some character A little bit of luxury Not so isolated that we can't eat outside the resort While I wouldn't say money is no object, we are looking for a bit of spoiling.

Posted by gogohanneson on 17/2/2010 at 00:13

Will be in Singapore and Malaysia with three other people for a frustratingly short seven days in early March. I've looked all through the Malaysia forum (and have culled lots of helpful info about KL to Taman Negara, thanks to Bruce Moon and SBE, especially)but haven't seen this particular itinerary. Is it possible to fit in the following, even if we fly in some places: Jungle Railroad (even if just for a stretch), Singapore, KL, Taman Negara, and Kuching? And obviously, we'd just be hitting ...
