Hi! I was hoping you guys might give me some advice :).
Early May 2017 I'm going to Borneo (Sabah) with my husband for a week. I had my mind set on going to the Borneo Rainforest Lodge (Danum) for 2 or 3 nights, but I can't justify a $1,000 per night stay (no matter how spectacular). So after a lot of reading I still find it hard to make a proper itinerary. How do you get to places easiest? Plane, car hire? I'm not a big fan of fancy hotels, but prefer to do things the way the locals do it.
We will have a 2 nights, one full day in Kuala Lumpur, where we have never been before.
Our interest are walking around, checking Chinatown, perhaps Little India, taste local food (is Jallan Alor the best place>)and to see Petronas towers – probably not to visit them, just to see them from a distance. Not interested in shopping and bar scene.
I am having a bit of hard time to narrow down what part of town to base ourselves. We land internationally at 17:30, this means, we have to go…
Hi, I've read and used lonely planet countless times but this is my first time posting as I couldn't find the exact answer I need for my questions.
My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to semporna for diving in mabul and preferably sipadan too in may/June. Will probably be doing a 4d3n trip.
Neither of us have a PADI diving license and we are planning to get it done during the trip.
My main concern is if it is worth doing the course there. I've gotten a few replies from hotel/tour…

Roughly how much for a taxi from Bukit Bintang to Sungai Besi, have it wait a couple of hours, then back to Bk. Bintang? I'm told taxis are hard to find in Sg. Besi and public transport non-existent. Of course, if anyone knows different...
I will be flying from Kolkata to Kuala Lumpur and then after 2 days from Sngapore to Darwin in Australia. I don't want to fly from KL to Singapore, I will most probably hitchhike. What is the chance of being asked about onward ticket by AirAsia? Will ticket from Singapore to Darwin be sufficient as onward travel ticket?
We're going from Melaka to Ipoh, and I've seen that there is a bus, which takes about 5 hours. Does the bus stop in KL or is it a direct bus?
Which is the best time of the day to take this kind of bus in order to avoid traffic jams?
Which cave temple of Ipoh do you recommend most? We're basically going to see Ipoh old town and maybe also some wall paintings of new town and Kellie's castle if we have time.
We'd like to go by Ferry from Kuala Perlis to Langkawi in the end of August.
- Is it easy to get tickets without prebooking at the Ferry terminal?
- Which company would you recommend, especially to avoid getting sea-sick?
- Are the ferries better compared to those on the Kuala Kedah - Langkawi or Pedang - Langkawi route?
Thanks and cheers!!
