We are a retired couple (65 years) and we like long bicycle trips. In the past 3 years we biked Thailand, Laos , Cambodia and Vietnam. This year we wish to travel nine weeks (jan +feb) through South-Thailand and Malaysia. We are not obliged to a planned route, anyreservation or a predetermined program... we love freedom... The only thing which is fixed is our return-ticket from Kuala Lumpur to Belgium on 4 march '16.
We are a bit worried about the period around Chinese Lunar New Year. Is ...
My friend and I are planning to visit Malaysia in November. All we know so far is that we are staying in Singapore for 3 nights and that we'd like to spend some days at a nice beach. We have about 12 nights in total.
Do you have any recommendations for where to go in Malaysia in November?
Thank you very much ...
I am planning to visit Penang End of December. Seeing all the horrible reports regarding the tremendous haze in Indonesia I wonder what the situation currently is in Penang. It is not too far away from Sumatra so I imagine Penang might well be affected.

As part of our six month stint through Southeast Asia, we will be spending 10 days in Sarawak. Currently, all we have planned is some time in Kuching, Bako NP, and a visit to the Orangutan sanctuary.
I would very much like to visit and stay in a longhouse during my stay, but have heard mixed reviews about the one close to Kuching.
Can anyone recommend a good area to visit some more traditional longhouses that would be doable in a 10 day visit?
Thank you! ...

I'm are travelling for two weeks in Malaysia on Christmas and New years. I'm nature lover so we would like to do some trekking in nature park in Borneo and/or Peninsular Malaysia. I am just wondering which National Park is the best over there? I'm also looking for best wildlife and is there any wildlife animal sanctuaries somewhere such as orangutans? Is it necessary to book a tour guide to national parks, or should I just find my way with local transportation? Anything else to keep i ...
I'm currently in Thailand and my visa is about to expire. Rather than extend it looks like I can get a return flight to KL for the same price so on a whim I booked up a flight from the 21st Sep. Have yet to book the return segment but will look to have about 7-10 days in the country.
I just wondered if anyone had any suggestions for a rough itinerary for this time of year?
I don't really mind inclement weather and prefer less touristy places if possible (who doesn't?).
I don't have a ...

I see on your Instagram you were recently in Kapitan in Penang. I was there about six years ago, remember it being a great feed for less than $10 for two people with all the trimmings.
Is it still as good? Your dish looks tasty from what I can tell! ...
Hi, we're planning a trip to Sabah over Christmas and wanted to ask about people's experiences of hiring cars/driving in Borneo please. Is it expensive to hire cars and are the roads in good condition with good signage? We're planning on driving from Sandakan to Kk, stopping off at the north tip of Borneo along route. Many thanks ...
I understand this new hotel is quite nice, and thinking of booking. I just have one question, does anyone know if the cheaper rooms all have windows? Any other tips appreciated - gracias!

On August 18 we plan to leave Tioman with ferry then take a night Bus in Mersing heading Kota Bharu. Unfortunately, looking at easybook.com seems like there are no buses available any more for all August! Any cue about what should we do??
Bottom line: would there be anyone interested in sharing a private van for that trip? We are a couple, italians, we enjoy traveling on budget and meeting people from other cultures.

I've gathered that North-East monsoon begins in the east coast of peninsular Malaysia in late October - November. The rainfall begins to increase already in September or earlier.
Does anyone have any good information on if it still is alright to visit east coast and Taman Negara in late September or during October, propably in October in my case? I've read that MOST (not all?) resorts and guesthouses close their doors in Perhentian Islands in the end of October so at least in theor ...
I'm going to Malasya from Thailand and I'll be there for a week. I will be going to Penang first and I want to travel down all the way to Singapore. I really don't want to get into touristy things,I'm want to get into Malasyan culture so I was wondering if anybody knows any city or town, preferably on the west coast which is nice in that way.
Thanks so much! ...
i'm planing a possible trip to Malaysia soon so i was wondering whether it's possible
to get a longer than 90 days visa before going, and if they require any documents
or proofs, etc... wondering if any embassies or consulates provide a 6 month visa
for example.. ...
I would be grateful for any advice. I have just over two weeks in Feb/March (would have been earlier but thought it would be prudent to avoid CNY - is this true of Borneo?) and simply can't decide on an itinerary. I am tempted by what I read about Kuching , but equally by Sabah. I don't climb mountains nor do I dive and being the wrong side of 50 and totally unfit I am also a little concerned that some of my plans may be too much. I am used to solo travelling having done Cambodia many time ...
