      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.

      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!

    • Land transport from Tawau to KK

      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?

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,

      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..?

      Cheers,
