    • Sarawak In January, weather and accesibility of National Parks

      Borneo Dec 25, 2016 at 2:30 PM

      Hi,
      I was planning to fly to Sarawak, Malaysia on the January 5. and spend about 5 weeks in Sarawak and Brunei. The Lonely Planet Guide says there is no particularly good or bad time to travel in Borneo because there is no real dry season and weather can vary very much from year to year, so I didn't think there is going to be a problem with travelling in Sarawak in January. But now I see that many travel-websites don't recommend to go to Sarawak in January at all due to very bad weather.
      Is there somebody who has been there in January or even better lives in Sarawak who can tell me what I can expect?
      Let me tell you first what I would expect from this trip. In Germany I work in nature conservation, so I spend most summer working outside. So with the right equipment some rain doesn't scare me. Also I want to spend most of the time in National Parks and am most interested in Botany (Orchids, Ferns) and also Insects, Spiders, Scorpions, Snakes. I could live without seeing Orangutans which are apparently hard to find when it's raining a lot. I would like to spend a lot of time in Nationalparks with dayhiking trails where I don't need a guide so I can take my time for taking pictures. But I'm also looking forward to expolring the caves in Gunung Mulu and Niah National Parks.
      So my main concern is: Will all the National Parks and also accomadations in or around National Parks be open and accessible during January? How likely is it that National Parks will not be accessible due to floodings or storms etc. What do I have to expect exactly from the weather. Does it rain all day long, or is it more very strong but short raining episodes and then long periodes without rain during the day. Is it raining more during the day or at night? (I've been in Java during rainy season three years ago and it rained mostly during the night.) I wouldn't mind it too much If there is some rain every day but I also need dry periods for taking pictures. What I woldn't like is to be stuck in my hotels for days because it is raining non stop.
      Also will there be any other tourists in the Parks? I don't want the places to be crowded of course, but honestly I don't like it when I'm always alone or the only guest in a hotel because I'm travelling alone.
      The thing is that i will spend three month in Southeastasia, and right now I'm planning to start in Sarawak, but I could also reschedule and visit Sarawak in March. The weather is supposed to be much better in March but are the most attractive National Parks allready crowded in March? What would you recommend under the circumstances I described, go in January or reschedule and go in March? Also, does anybody happen to know when most of the Orchids are in bloom? I suspect it is in the wettest months.

      A lot of questions here, I know. I would be very grateful for any advice.
      And Merry Christmas to everybody!

      I will be staying near the KLCC in Kuala lumpur. How do I get to Fraser's hill on January 31st 2017, during the Chinese New year season? We are not local, so we need the easiest way and least hassle. Would that be by coach or train or cab.

      I was there last June and noticed that the shops were closed for renovations near the clock tower. I'm just wondering if the shops are up and running. Is the old provision shop still open as we are planning a return trip and are wondering if there will be a chance to buy some beer and liquor to warm ourselves in the night.

    • Bus service up to Fraser's Hill

      by xinanelz Online Now Jan 22, 2006 at 11:19 PM

      Hi All,

      I have an urgent question to ask as I'll be leaving for KL this weekend (CNY 28/02/06)! We are from Singapore going to KL and planning to go up to Fraser's Hill for 3 days. Have already booked Silverpark Hotel. Hope it's good. Any comments?

      Also there seems to be different timings for the bus up to Fraser's Hill. Anyone have taken a bus from Kuala Kubu before? As we are staying at Pan Pacific in KL, how long do you think we need to get to Kuala Kubu and catch the bus to Fraser's Hill? And how long will the whole journey last?

      Also mentioned in one website, the bus will drop us at The Gap and we need to walk up 7km to Fraser's Hill??? Is that true? Any other way we can arrive directly to Fraser's Hill?

      How much will a taxi fare cost? Heard that taxis is Msia not that reliable, we are all girls and a bit worried about travelling in a taxi.

      Can someone plese reply ASAP?! Thanks a lot. My post is probably all over the place but I hope you guys get what I'm trying to ask. Thank you again for replying. :)

      Public transport to Fraser Hill - so many versions.....which is accurate?

      by serenemok Online Now Sep 22, 2004 at 6:32 PM

      Hi, Need help to confirm the place and timing for going up Fraser Hill . We'll be travelling up from KL city via public transport - next week 4 Oct 04. From the resources in the web, Most mentioned take bus from Pudaraya bus terminal platform but there is someone advising from MYDIN at Kotaraya. When reaching KKB, you'll need to change to another bus for the one way traffic up the hill. Some said daily only once from KKB to Fraser hill and some said twice at 8:30 and 12 noon. Also one advise at 10:30am. Since we cannot miss the bus and also ned to plan what time to take off from KL town, really appreciate someone that can confidently advise the accurate timing. Cheers. Serene
