      Peaceful walk 18 Nov @ KL, around Malaysia and the world

      Kuala Lumpur Nov 16, 2016 at 7:41 PM

      This Saturday, many Malaysians will be practising their constitutional rights to have a peaceful dem called BERSIH (Bersih is a Malay word for Clean and the color is yellow). There are a few objectives of the campaign, google it!

      Thus, visitors can choose to support or avoid. Major parts of KL the focal point will be closed to traffic (motorists). Thus for tourists, use the trains as main modes of transport. Trains will continue to operate, unsure about public buses. This is the 5th outing and the authorities are much better at handling the crowd. There are always those who maybe secular and oppose (those wearing red) and they are making threats. Hope the authorities control them because they are threatening to use violence. A scare tactic.

      There's no real reason to be particularly apprehensive about. Just be patient in getting from one place to another, bring some snacks/food, drinking water, umbrella (in case rain or too sunny) and if you are 'stuck' somewhere. Some eateries and shops may be closed for business as business may not be good with everyone concentrating on the rally and prevent shoplifting or looting as some may take advantage. I am unsure about touristic places but the Twin Towers KLCC mall should be open. Chinatown, Brickfields may be mostly closed as it is prime area. If you take a train to Petaling Jaya city, 30 mins train ride from KL, you can go to Amcorp Mall, Paradigm Mall (feeder bus from Kelana Jaya LRT station), One Utama (no direct adjacent train station) and Subang Parade are all Malls with quite nearby train station. Prepare that you may need to 'take it easy' on Saturday especially...many businesses maybe closed.

      You could get on the train and enjoy the sights from the train and atmosphere. Or just hand around the hotel area. Check with your reception desk any latest advice and check the news.

      There maybe some provocation to create trouble by some minorities parties, to create sensation and fear, the message is to stay calm and walk away. This is a non-political peaceful demonstration by Malaysians. Some politicians have taken advantage of it. Using other channels like writing to our leaders, trying to bring it up to Parliament and many others have not been successful.

      Cheers!

      Things to do in Kuching

      by kentut_besar Online Now Jan 31, 2010 at 5:14 AM

      Vanakam.

      I've secured accommodation in Damai Puri Resort for the Rainforest World Music Festival, on 9, 10 & 11 July 2010 :)

      I'm simply thrilled, because I've been trying to do this for 4 years, but with no success; the accommodation in Mount Santubong near the concert venie, the Sarawak Cultural Village (SCV) is always booked solid for this period for up to 7 months in advance !!

      Anyway, I've got a free morning, & I'm wondering what to do in Kuching that morning before my flight back in the evening.

      Welcome any ideas, cheers.

    • Which Park near Kuching to visit on weekend ?

      by vaclavv Online Now Jun 8, 2008 at 12:31 AM

      Hi. This August I will be about five days in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia and plan to visit some of the National Parks near there. In general I would like to spend two days in Bako and a day in Kubah/Matang and another day on Santubong peninsula; the last day I fly out at night I would like to go to Semenggoh.

      Now, within these five days there is a weekend and I expect the Parks are more crowded on weekends. So I am wandering which of the mentioned places I should visit during weekend while avoiding the crowds as much as I can. I figured my best option will be to put those two weekend days on visiting Bako NP as I plan to go there early in the morning, take the Limau Trail, spend the night there at Limau beach (or the Keruin beach) and come back next evening - I guess, not so many people walks so far away and so I may get out of the crowds that way.

      Could anybody familiar with the area to give me his/her opinion about the best itinerary. Thanks.

      Hi there!! I'll planning to visit Kuching in mid December this year (2004) and was hoping to go to Bako National Park. Can anyone tell me whether whether it will be open or will it be closed this time of the year? Also, can anyone tell me whether it rains often during this period? i.e. everyday? If the park opens I am wondering whether it will be worth going if it rains everyday? Thanks. John.

    • Holiday Inn Damai Beach

      by TJBAUS Online Now May 23, 2004 at 9:44 PM

      We are looking to head to Kuching for the first time in Dec 04 / Jan 05. It is a family group and we are intending in staying 4 nights at Holiday Inn Kuching and then 9 nights Holiday Inn Damai Beach. Is there plenty to do whilst staying here and what are these accommodations like? I am particularly interested in hearing anything on Holiday Inn Damai Beach - are there lots of activities offered by the resort, etc. We have been asked by a travel agent back here why we would want to stay there for that long because there is not much to do. Is this correct?? Does anyone know the web site for Holiday Inn Damai Beach. Also what is the beach like - can you swim in it, snorkle, etc. Any information is appreciated, Thank you.
