im traveling to KL on the 22nd of October 2015. I've heard there is a lot of smoke and contamination from the fires in Indonesia. My question is, has it settled down a little or is it still ongoing? any body there at the moment who can provide some up to date information.
Thanks a lot!
I just returned from three weeks in Malaysia, and the only bad experience I had was staying the the de Plateau Lodge in Bario. I wanted to stay at Jungle Dreams, but it was full. The de Plateau Lodge was mentioned in Lonely Planet and Rough Guide, but not Trip Advisor. The owner wrote back quickly, so I thought I would try it.
De Plateau was the dirtiest place I have ever stayed. The showers were thick with cobwebs, and the rooms are dirty (I noticed trash in my room from the last guest). The…
I'm planning to visit Malaysia for New Year's Eve and I would like to know what do you think about this itinerary:
- 3 nights in KL (with one day excursion in Taman Negara)
- 1 night in Ipoh
- 4 nights in Pangkor Laut
Is it the right period to enjoy some sun and sea?
Planning a 9 night trip to Malaysia with family consisting of wife and a 18 year old son. Travel dates 30 June - 9 July 2016. We are interested in everything a tourist would normally do on such trips and have no particular bias for one type of activity over another. Need a critique on the following itinerary:
3 nights – Langkawi
2 nights – Penang
4 nights – KL (including a day trip to Genting)
Does this sound good? Please feel free to suggest changes. Thanks,
We plan to visit Malaysia in December, and will be travelling more or less constantly until then, hence cannot apply through the "normal" process at home, which takes more than the time we have available. We will need a visitor visa. One option, which we have pursued before, is to go to Singapore and apply there. This has to be done through an agency. Last time we did this the agency was less than efficient; although we did get the visa it was a stressful process.
Please suggest agencies in…
Next summer I want to study in Malaysia for a nursing diploma. But its really difficult to find information! I hope there will be some people up here, who can help me out a bit. I would like to know what university's give nursing courses in mostly english and prefer to go to Penang. Is there some site were I can compare university's and the costs? When will the first semester start? I noticed that foreign people have to pay some fees to get into a university, is this normal or are…
I could use some help with planning my honeymoon to Malaysia. We are used to visit a lot of places, travel by public transit and staying in cheap hotels. We want our honeymoon to be special so we will spend a little more, but we are definately not the usual expensive resort honeymooners ;-) We like to visit cities (tempels, colonial and modern architecture, history museums), go on a day hike to see some wildlife, we like nice food and my boyfriend likes to go snorkelling (but I don't, so…
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…
