      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 ;)

      by kiwicass99 Online Now May 14, 2010 at 5:05 PM

      Hi there,

      I am hoping to get some advice. I am heading to the Perhentian Islands next month for about four days. I am not sure whether to book accommodation on Kecil or Besar island?
      I don't dive, but my main requirement is to stay on a beautiful beach with great snorkelling - so I was hoping members could advise on which island is best?
      In terms of accommodation, budget is fine, but am happy to pay more if it is worth it.
      If anyone could be of assistance then that would be wonderful!

      Thanks very much!

      Hello everyone! Which is the best/fastest way from Kuala Lumpur to Perhentian Kecil? As we fly from Shanghai with our 3yo kid, the suggested route ends in Kota Bharu via KL. I see that all boats to Kecil starts from Kuala Besut (which seem to be little far from Kota Bharu). How to reach Kuala Besut from Kota Bharu? Or can we simply go from Kota Bharu to Kecil? Or is there any other direct route option to Kecil? Any suggestion or advice will be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

      Also, it seems like most chalets only take in walk-in bookings but do not allow for reservations. I'm a little worried that they may be no rooms left since I will be travelling in a group. Any advice?

      by petra_zahler Online Now Mar 13, 2007 at 2:06 PM


      we are looking forward to visit perhentian islands. we were already at d'lagoon in 2001 and it was very quiet, nice beach and beautiful snorkelling. can really recommend it for a relaxing holiday! have seen turtles laying their eggs at night and met nice people.

      we first thought to go to redang this time, but after a research on internet we saw that perhentian is fitting better for our holiday.
      we like a quiet, relaxing accommodation where you have nice possibilities for snorkelling and just lay lazy at the beach and read a book. in the evening we would like to enjoy good food, and if there is the possibility, drink a glass of wine. we saw that on most resorts alcool is forbidden.

      the first ten days of our trip we are going to sabah, then KL, after that we want to go right to perhentian islands.
      we plan to go to turtle beach creek for 4nights, then perhentian island resort, and at the end impiani resort. has anobody been at one of these resorts?

      or can somebody recommend another resort?

      thanks everybody for your answer!!
