KL to Putrajaya

Hi. We are interested in visiting Putrajaya, specifically the area around the famous Putrajaya mosque. We are arriving at KLIA 2 airport around 3 pm, and tentatively planning to take the train in to our hotel in KL (or else just a taxi). Then, we would like to go back to Putra and visit the mosque at dusk. I am a photographer and planning to shoot the mosque at dusk, so timing is important. Is it realistic to travel into our hotel in the heart of KL (near bukit bintang), check in and leave all…

USD from ATM at KLIA2?

I will be flying through KLIA2 in December and will need to get hold of some USD, preferably without first having to withdraw ringgit as my card is in £ and I don't want to lose money on a double exchange rate. I recall seeing some ATMs on my previous travels in Asia, that would let you withdraw $ or £ or € though I can't remember which airport it was. Does anyone know if KLIA1 or 2 has ATMs like these or if there is a way to buy $ with a card at the airport? Thanks

Malaysian Borneo - Kuching to Tawau - how long for an overland trip?

Malaysian Borneo - Kuching to Tawau - how long for an overland trip?

Just a ballpark figure - will take a few flights to do the major hops - I'm thinking about 3 weeks - is that pushing it or a decent guess? Thanks

Public transport on CNY

Hi, I'm planning on taking a trip to Malaysia around Chinese New Year. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me whether public transport (ie buses and trains) service will be affected by the holiday. Do they still operate? If so how far do i have to book in advance? I was looking to head to Penang from KL and then back down to Melaka.

Any info would be great :)

Adventures in Borneo

Hi,

I'm planning to head to South East Asia for almost 3 weeks from the 29th December to the 17th January. I'll be spending New Year's Eeve with a friend in Thailand, then i'm planning to visit Krabi and the nearby islands, and make my way down the western coast of Malaysia.

With my current itinerary I have 3 full days (not including flights) in Borneo. I'm interested in trekking, seeing some of the jungle and Gunung Mulu looks fantastic. Obviously i'd love to see the orang-utans too. Are…

Clothes shopping in Kuala Lumpur?

Hi there,

We are travelling since 8 months and going to be on a stop over in KL next week. I would like to stock up my travel wardrobe a bit before entering a few more 'conservative countries' e.g. Indonesia, Sri Lanka... I was wondering were in KL (Bukit Bintang area) can I find skirts (cover the knees) or light linen/cotton trousers? I have been several times to KL but only remember shop like Zara, H&M etc and they might do not offer this clothes currently.
Any advice?

Thanks
Tinka

Diving Sipadan & staying on Mabul

Hey, don't see much recent activity on this. Was going to stay at Uncle Changes but trip advisor reviews are really bad. Scuba Junkies seems the best but you have to stay longer & dive more than what we are able to do, so thats out. Anyone have anything good to say about other budget alternatives. Kind of shocked how overpriced everything is, but safety & equipment that works is our main concern. thanks!

Opinion on three-week itinerary

Hey guys,

Would love to hear your opinion on this 24-days itinerary, especially in relation to the 18 days I am spending in Malaysia. It seems like there is so much to see and do in Malaysia, so I am having a hard time deciding on where to go. I like to mix some nature, big cities, interesting sights and beaches. So a little bit of everything.

The plan is to fly between each city.

Kuala Lumpur - 3 days
Langkawi - 5 days
Penang - 3 days
Singapore - 3 days
Krabi (Thailand) - 6 days
