Thinking About Our Next Trip - Malaysia?

Jump to last reply

I have looked at other posts on this and people seem to be as confused as I am. I have looked at a couple of guide books and read both of Kathie's trip reports and know that we want a diversified experience - some history, some city, some beach, some country/villages. We'll probably have 12-13 days on the ground - not sure exactly when but it doesn't really seem to matter, weatherwise. We have the airline points now to get there.

First question is Singapore versus Kuala Lampur - not sure we need to "do" two cities on this trip - FF miles may favor Singapore. Can we miss Kuala Lampur?

We really need to slow it down on our next trip - less flying and more time at destinations. This does not mean going to a beach or other resort and hanging, doing nothing. It means going to a place with lots to do relatively close by - history, moderate hiking, wildlife, snorkeling and local tribal culture (photo ops). Unfortunately, it seems that the more hassle it is to get some place, the more rewarding it tends to be - Kathie's trip to the Borneo Rain Forest Lodge is a good example of this.

I think Jeane (my wife) is pretty psyched on this destination due to a recommendation from a patient. It has been on my list for a while. A combination of tourist spots such as Penang/Georgetown, Lankawi and/or Kuching plus an isolated destination (suggestions?) would be ideal - probably 3 total plus Singapore (if that is the consensus) would make for a great trip.

Looking forward to all suggestions - there is not a lot of information here.

P.S. Yes, I am working on our photos from India.
