      alternative way to visit taman negara

      Taman Negara Dec 3, 2014 at 12:14 PM

      Hi,
      We are traveling to malaysia in the summer 2015 and are looking for a great way to visit taman negara np. We don't like the touristy tourist things. Can anyone give us tips about a guided not very touristic trekking. We are not rhe kind of hero's that go in the park ourselves. Is there a possibility to arrange a private guide, and where can we find a good one?

      Thank you
      ArBanis

      Hi everyone ! Hope you can help me with some good landmarks
      I will have some days in Malaysia... Landing to Kuala Lumpur on 24th January
      Sure i will spend 2 days in KL
      Then i have some more time from 27 jan to visit the western coast before to fly to Philippines
      I can both book a flight to Manila from Singapore or again from Kuala Lumpur
      So need to leave on the 2nd feb is the only thing i know.
      What do you recommend?
      I can have 2 days more once Returning from Manila at the end of the month (before Returning to Italy)
      I travel smart, guest houses and buses are fine, local experience and open to suggestions. If one nice Beach is on the way recommend, i would love to chill one/tuo days but lets say is not really necessary,
      So totally i will have
      3 night in KL and then 6 more nights around the country.
      Thank you for all your help in advance and please you are welcome to Italy my friends.
      Cheers

      by pyrrhous Online Now Jan 16, 2012 at 11:02 PM

      Buses from Tawau to KK cost about RM70plus but they leave only in the evening and takes 8 hrs. Any idea how much it would cost for a private taxi/bus/car for 3 people? Would it be faster also? I emailed some travel operators but no response from them. Any contacts?

      Best islands to stay

      by poepat Online Now Aug 4, 2011 at 4:37 AM

      Hi all, still putting the finishing touches to our 2012 holidays in March. We are considering visiting the islands around Sipidan and staying on one of them for a couple of nights. We want to experience pristine white sand beaches, good snorkelling (no diving lthough we understand this area to be the finest in the worl, and good dining at the chosen resort. The Islands we are looking at are Mabul,,,Mataking,,,,,Kapalai,,,,and Pom Pom,
      Any comments on these islands or other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
      We will be staying at Tawau for a couple of nights before going to the Islands
      Many thanks for your help

      Diving around Tawau

      by Michele75 Online Now May 24, 2006 at 3:11 AM

      I'm planning a dive trip from Tawau, possibly but not necessarily Sipadan. Net seems to be full of operators offering expensive package sin USD. How are the things in Tawau itself.. if I just get a flight there and start looking, what am I likely to find...?

      What other good stuff is there besides overprized Sipadan..?
