Hai All,

I am planning to travel to Malaysia by next April 2010. I have interest in backpack traveling. I like natural beauty than city beauty. Some blog is really helpful, like the one "Kuala Lumpur starter kit". thanks mate. Though I dont want to stick in KL. I will go for highland or forest or beach.

Please can any one make my trip plan in cheap & exiting. I will be delighted.

Hi there,

There's heaps of natural beauty in Malaysia, you're in luck! Some places you may wish to visit on peninsular Malaysia include the Cameron Highlands, and Taman Negara National Park for walking, scenery and wildlife. In terms of beaches, there is the Perhentian Islands, Langkawi and Pulau Tioman - all of these places you can get too easily from KL.

How long are you planning on going for? And I take it you're not planning on going to Malaysian Borneo?

You can't go wrong in Malaysia for natural beauty. The jungle is world-class, the islands are awesome and the beaches are among the best in the world. As Sian said, it really depends how long you're going for..

hi,
u may want to visit Borneo island, sabah and sarawak.

If you are into scuba diving in Sipadan island and mountain climbing , Mt Kinabalu in Sabah, then Sabah is the place.

If you wish to visit Sarawak, go explore Mulu caves, see the profile of Abraham lincoln on a cave, watch over 3million bats coming out in evening scourging for food, the Pinnacles and longhouse visits, then you must visit sarawak.

cheers,

Hello there, when you are in KL, try to look for a budget hostel near all those important amenities, especially the transportation. Backpacker in KL is quite reasonable, one of those I can suggest is Wheelers Guest House. You more details from their website at :-

A lot of people like the east coast because of the resorts, but you might want to check out the west coast. Going south there is Port Dickson and Malacca or going north there is Ipoh and Penang which is great. Be sure to try the nonya food!

Yes, its worth checking out. By the way I Spelt the food wrong it should be nyonya, the two best variations Ive found are in Malacca (which has more of an Indonesian flavour) and in Penang (Check out the Hot Wok near batu fegingghi). The food is actually an original fusion food of Chinese, Portuguese, Indonesian and Tamil... there is some debate about all that but ignore it and enjoy the food.
First time I went to Malaysia it was Malaya I was up in kedah in a place now known as Pantai Merdekah, that was almost 40 years ago and it wasn't a whole lot of fun. Has anyone been there recently?

Beside Kuala Lumpur that you decided to go, if you like nature, Id recommend you 2 places you should go: Miri Mulu and Kuching:

- Miri is on the coast of the South China Sea. There are beautiful beach that will give you satisfaction when you take the warm sunny and explore friendly tropical beach. From Miru to Mulu, its the easy way by air or cruise by river so that you can enjoy sightseeing and breathing the fresh air. There are many interesting places attract in Miri Mulu: Mulu Caves National Park, Lotus Hill, Lambir Hills National Park, Niah National Park, etc

- Kuching is located on the banks of the Sarawak River, which is a lively and beautiful town on a river. There also many interesting place such as: Damai Beach, Ching Shan Yan Temple, Jongs Crocodile Farm

Hope you will enjoy all of them and have a great trip.

If you like natural beauty, you'll love Peninsular Malaysia's Eastern Seaboard.

Just two of the reasons we like this stretch? The endless jungle, the deafening silence. Bonus reason: the awesome beaches smile.gif

Whenever we crave a hefty dose of rest and peaceful quiet or just some time away from the ever-present big-city throngs, we just hop over to the Seri Buat Archipelago, for instance.

Tioman, one of the archipelago's many islands, boasts spectacular landscapes and seascapes that simply take our breath away.

Best of all, there are plenty of locations for backpackers there, like Salang, to enjoy the countless beach activities and outdoors fun on offer in Tioman.

That said, the mainland areas North and South of Mersing have us coming back for more too; Desaru, Air Papan, Tanjung Resang, all are stunning capes with lots of pristine wilderness and plenty of opportunities for good old-fashioned fun in the sun.

Sailing, kite-surfing, windsurfing, stand up paddling, or just snorkeling, scuba diving or jungle-trekking. We're loving it all.

Check it out some time eh.

Cheers.

So to say, there too many tourist attraction around Malaysia and I simply find countless attraction to be discovered week by week and to me 3 days is not enough and most opf the packages offered online did not manage to fill up the 3 days vacation that most tourists had. And mostly regrets that they missed some of the major attractions & activities during those 3 days stay in Malaysia so as I must say to all..plan your vacation wisely.

I had found these inevitable discounts & offers from http://www.hotelreservation.com.my on their fantastic year end & new year promotion period which for me..quite fascinating for travellers to try with.
