Malaysia & Brunei

About this blog

Cashed in 20,000 Aeroplan miles for a free return ticket to Singapore + $50 Airport Taxes

Incheon (KR) > Singapore > Kuching (MY) > Brunei (BR) > Kota Kinabalu (MY) > Penang (MY) > Alor Setar (MY) > Langkawi (MY) > Medan (IN) > Singapore

The final place I wanted to explore in SE Asia was Brunei which is a bit tricky and costly to get to. I'd already visited the capitals of Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore in 2008.

This time I wanted to explore more of Malaysia outside of Kuala Lumpur which I had already seen. I also threw in an overnight stay on Sumatra Island in Indonesia which I've also never been to before (only exploring Java Island last time).

Rule of thumb for exchange rates

> Malaysia : Divide by 3

> Singapore/Brunei : Subtract 20%

> Indonesia : Drop four zeros and divide by 2


3 MY = $1

1.25 SGD = $1

10,000 IDR = $1
