A recent e-mail received from travelfish mentioned cheap flights with AirAsia. Can anyone who took advantage of one of these flights answer these questions for me. Was the price on the website the total real price you paid or were there add-ons such as meals, additional luggage costs incurred by low baggage allowance, departure or arrival taxes, etc? Also, from the website it shows the window to purchase these will end soon. Is anyone aware whether there may be similar sales in the future? ...
We are flying into Kuching about 9pm on the 24th and thought we really should organise somewhere to sleep before we get there.
Can anyone recommend some budget places we could look into?
Maybe somewhere thats easily accessible from the airport too!
One of our friends has dropped and now we have an extra ticket for an Air Asia flight London STN/Kuala Lumpur/London STN.
I think name changes are allowed (at some fee) in AirAsia, so I wonder whether anyone would be interested in buying this extra ticket
STN/KUL Nov 5 23.05
KUL/STN Nov 22 15.30
305,10 GBP return + applicable fees for name change (no idea how much this can be)
Let me know if you are interested and we discuss details. ...
KLIA Transit (which operates on the same line as the KLIA Express Train (KL-KLIA) but stops at 5 stations instead of 2) has now launched a service linking the train to the LCCT. You take the train to the pneultimate station (Salak Tinggi) and then they have a fleet of air-con busses to take you to the LCCT. The cost is currently RM12.50 and the trip takes about a hour.

I'm a Canadian girl who's been living in Asia for 3 years now. My dad finally has booked a flight out to visit, and I'm trying to put together an itinerary for his 8 day visit. I live in Singapore and really want him to experience more of Asia than just here.
The thing is that I don't really know what he would find interesting and, as he's never traveled out of North America before, I don't ...
Just looking for a few links on websites that could help us with places to stay and help us tally up roughly how much we will need in and around Kuala Lumpur for 2/3 weeks. We are also traveling Thailand, Vietnam, Loas & Cambodia over 6 months so budget is budget.
Thank you ...
For myself, and to share information on this new-ish forum, I am wondering if anyone has experiences to share regarding their travels in Sabah and Brunei.
This is in addition to the topic on Turtle Island.
I am considering Sepilok, KK, going up Mount Kinabalu, and popping over to Brunei (via Pulau Labuan).
Any info to share on travel, where to stay, what to do, what not to do etc would be much appreciated.
Thanks, you lovely informative people. ...
Hi! Has anyone done this independently? I am in KK right now, and it seems that the only info I can get is about packages - and they aree wayyyy beyond my price range. Is it possible to hire a boat, stay for the evening and head back? Does anyone have any budget suggestions?
Trying to find time to fit Malaysia into my travels. Wondering what the weather would be like in January for diving at Sipadan and hiking Mt Kinalabu. I don't mind bad weather but don't want to waste money diving with no visibility. If anyone has been there around this time i'd appreciate any advice. ...
I am going to be backpacking alone through Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand then travelling through Malaysia to get to Singapore where I will meet friends who live there.
A friend of mine will be flying from London to Kuala Lumpa to meet me. We will be travelling home from Singapore together a week later.
My dilemma is my friend will only be away for a week (a long way to go for a week). We want to spend at least 2 days in Singapore and possibly 1/2 days in KL.
As I am away for three months ...
at first i thought, what only rocks? this beach sucks. then it just grew on me and i stayed there for 9 days. a really nice vibe there.
stayed in south pacific chalets for mr27/night.
most small basic bungalows are around the mr30-40 range. then, it jumps to mr100-150 for a/c rooms.
the sand is at either end of the beach and the one at the south end has a bar right on it. they make a decent pizza there too.
happy hour from 5-7. both ends have a bar with happy hour. 3 beers for mr10.
you ca ...
