Daniel asks…

Advice for a holiday in Malaysia?

My girlfriend and I are going to go to Malaysia at the start of March. We already have flights booked and don’t want to do a package holiday but travel around. I have three questions:

1. What’s a recommended daily budget? We want to stay in nice but relatively inexpensive guesthouses and huts (as opposed to hotels), eat cheaply and drink a few beers.

2. Where are the nice, quiet-ish Islands in Malaysia with beautiful beaches? Should we go to Langkawi?

3. We’re only there for two weeks, and want to spend most of the time on islands and beaches. However, we do want to spend some time in KL. How long do you think we should stay in KL to see a good bit of it?

Many thanks for any help you can give.

Cuti-cuti Malaysia answers:

Hi there! Two weeks is not that long, but if you fail to plan properly your trip will turns sour. So, do lots of research on the net. Anyway, as a local, i’ll give you some indications;

1. Decent accommodation at an island will cost you about RM50 – RM100/nite. Food is very cheap, at RM5-RM10/meal if you take them at normal restaurant. Decent accommodation in KL will cost you RM100/nite. Try www.tune.com (this is www.airasia.com budget hotel – they have tune hotels in most big cities in Malaysia).

2. I would recommend the islands at the east coast of Malaysia namely Redang Island, Tioman Island or Perhentian Island. But these islands are a bit far from KL, i.e. Approx. 4km by road. If you have a chance to go to Sabah, sample their islands and beaches too. You could try Langkawi, it’s not bad, but to me it’s already too commercialised.

3. Erm, 3-4 days in KL should suffice to taste the KL life. Perhaps KL could be your last stop after islands hopping and right before you fly back to your home.
