      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.

      Which Malaysian (penisular) islands should I visit in january-february?

      Malaysia Nov 6, 2016 at 3:00 AM


      I'm thinking about going in Peninsular Malaysia in january or february and I'd like to try scuba-diving/snorkelling and relax on beaches, on one of the numerous little islands along the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia such as Tenggol, Tioman or Redang islands.

      But about what I've heard, winter is the monsoon season and all the ferries and lodges are closed and cancelled. I've been in Malaysia once at that period and I didn't notice the weather was so terrible, but I guess it's justified.

      So I wanted to know if there are some islands in Peninsular Malaysia that offers this tropical-coral like background for scuba-diving with working infrastructures at that period (outside of Langkawi that I already know)?

      Thanks a lot ;)

      Travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Pulau Pangkor

      by Daihappydai Online Now May 13, 2012 at 1:16 AM

      We will be arriving in KL at 10am on Friday 13th July. We are flying in from Kota Kinabalu with Air Asia, so we will be at the LCCT.
      We would like to go from the airport directly to Pulau Pangkor. I have found the website for Star Shuttle buses that go directly from the airport to Sitiawan but looking at the schedule, there is a bus at 9 am (too early) and the next is not until 12.30.
      My question is, how long does it take, and how do we get to Puduraya Bus Station from LCCT to get an earlier bus, and if we did this, would we need to book in advance?
      Also, if we waited for the Star Shuttle bus, would we need to book that one in advance?
      Thank you in anticipation.

    • Penang to KL via Pulau Pangkor

      by sma19710 Online Now Jun 16, 2011 at 4:54 PM

      We want to travel from Penang to Pulau Pangkor, spend 4 nights, before travelling to KL to get international flight home. What would be the best way of doing this? There seen to be no flights now. Would it be cheaper to hire a car for the 5 days (seems excessive, to have it parked by the Jetty for 4 of them) or just to get a taxi? Don't want to do public bus thing as we have kids. Any advice would be appreciated.
