Motorcycle Hire Borneo

Posted by RossAngeles on 20/3/2014 at 19:15

Greetings Fellow Adventurers, My girlfriend and I are planning to go to Borneo next month. We are currently trying to decide on Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo) or Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo). I know Indonesian Borneo is meant to be way less touristy and much wilder (which is what we are after), but communication is much harder and getting around more difficult. We would like to hire a motorbike and use that as our means of transportation around Borneo for a month. Does anyone have any information ...

Report: visa extension in Malacca - cheap and easy

Posted by lifemagic on 24/3/2014 at 04:38

Just back from Immigration today, to extend my Malaysian visa, easy and cheap but no info 'out there', so I'm adding this. Situation: British passport. Entered and got ninety days in Padang Besar 'social visit pass'. Last year I extended by a visa run after 90 days but was hassled coming back, so this year went for an extension rather than leaving Malaysia and coming straight back. First, you will need your passport. The visa needs to be in it's last week of validity or they can't do it. A tic ...

So this plane that's gone missing

Posted by chinarocks on 10/3/2014 at 04:26

An absolute tragedy and a scary story; currently looks like mid-air disintegration given lack of debris which would normally be found if the aircraft only broke up on impact with the sea. What are people's theories? Terrorism has to be a real possibility. Would the Uighurs of Xingjiang have the capability (or incentive) to do something like this as a proxy attack on Beijing, given the predominance of Chinese passengers on board? ...

Advice for memorable Southeast Asian holiday

Hi I am planning a holiday, for just over two weeks, in August with a couple of friends. We are all 22 year old British female students. Ideally, we would like a holiday that combines culture, wildlife and a good nightlife. However, one of the travellers has asthma, so we cannot go to a country with a high altitude as she may struggle to breathe comfortably. At the moment, we are looking into either Thailand or Borneo. For Thailand, I am hesitant about the weather in August (we are travellin ...
