Hello everyone,

Would you please be able to help? This is my first post.
I am going to Malaysia and Singapore with a friend for two and a half weeks this August. We are interested in culture (visiting sights as opposed to museums), food, nightlife, nature, beaches and relaxation. We would like to see and experience as much as possible but at a nice easy pace.
I would be interested in some feedback on our itinerary please - are we spending too much or too little time in one place - generally…

Hi,

Me and my travel companion are planning a trip to Malaysian Borneo: first Sarawak and then climb Mount Kinabalu before the last part of the trip where we have the choice to go to Sandakan, Danum and diving islands (Mabul, Sipadan or Langkayan) or stay on the west coast and have a lesser experience (I am a diver). We are planning to go in september but the European/International travel advice for the east coast is negative due to pirates, Abu Sayyaf. Should we take take the risk because we…

Hi, I hold an Indian passport. I'm planning to visit Malaysia & Sabah.

My itinerary is -
India - Kuala Lumpur - Langkawi
Stay for few nights
Langkawi - Kota Kinabulu
Stay for few nights
Kota Kinabulu - Kuala Lumpur
Stay for few nights
Kuala Lumpur - India

When I was searching online, I got to know that entry to Sabah requires a separate Visa even though it's part of Malaysia? does this mean I'll have to apply for a Multiple Entry Malaysian Visa and a Single Entry Visa for Sabah?

This may be a strange question, but we will have just 1 day in KL and I am trying to figure out how much money to exchange to have enough for the meals (average price in Little India, Chinatown, maybe Jalan Alor)
I know that the bus from the airport will be appr. 10MYR per person, the hotel is pre paid, so the rest is just the cost of the food.
thanks

I am persevering about going to Kenong Rimba at the end of January because I have found no other state park that seems so attractive. It is necessary to have a guide. Arif doesn't reply. Another outfit quotes in US dollars (always a bad sign; indeed about five times what I would be prepared to pay), Appu guesthouse in Kuala Lipis is a possible so I emailed them. I got a reply from Amanadarajah saying, hey, January is a long way off but I can help you, just get in touch a month before you want to…

During my month in Sarawak, Borneo, I had the distinct privilege to be "guided" by Alvin Danker, a passionate defender of all things "Borneo" including Orangutans, Indigenous Peoples and the Rainforest. His unrelenting dedication to preserving the precious endangered resources of Borneo led him every day to give vent to an emotional, yet rational and devastating, indictment of the forces corrupting the ability of the country to pursue long-term improvement in the plight of the Orangutan and all…

Kenong Rimba seems like an interesting place to visit. It nuzzles up to Taman Negara but is pretty untouristed. We would like to spend a few days there in January and my wife is particularly interested in birds. Any comments from TTers?

Do you h ave any recommendation for where to eat / what dish not to miss while in Kuala Lumpur?
We will be staying near KL Sentral, plan to walk to Chinatown and hit Jalan Alor.

Thank you.
