Kuala Lumpur- Day 16- 19

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 9 Jun 2015 | Views [209]

OK at the time of writing I am extremely behind with writing (around two weeks late).   We stayed in a double room in Travel Hub High Street. We were lucky and got one of the few rooms with windows. This was one of the best places we stayed ... Read more >

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 4 Jun 2015 | Views [227]

The journey to the highlands was one of our most difficult. Leaving Pangkor was difficult and from Lumut we had to wait over an hour to catch our bus to Ipoh to catch another bus. We had no clue which bus was ours and got delayed in Ipoh. Finally arriving ... Read more >

Pulau Pangkor- Day 7- 10/11

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 28 May 2015 | Views [382]

Originally we wanted to stay on coral bay but with only one accommodation we could see charging RM 150 per night (our budget being RM 110) when the guide warned us this place made up prices to whatever they felt like. We stayed at Nazri Nipah Camp on ... Read more >

Georgetown- Day 5-6

MALAYSIA | Monday, 25 May 2015 | Views [188]

We only spent one full day on Penang island which we spent in Georgetown. As soon as we arrived we noticed Georgetown is such a mishmash of different cultures and architecture, driving down a road you could believe you were in London.   ... Read more >

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 21 May 2015 | Views [231]

So now we are in Malaysia! Journey to Langkawi was pretty easy, our first Asian ferry replacing our usual longtail boat. We spent 4 nights in Langkawi at Rainbow Lodge on the main tourist strip Pantai Cenang. Although Langkawi is touristy ... Read more >

Day 17-21 Ko Jum (Ao Si)

THAILAND | Friday, 15 May 2015 | Views [219]

Ko Jum is paradise. Not sure what the whole island is like but ao si beach is amazing and Loma Sea view bungalows adds to the islands charm to make it something really special.   We arrived on Ko Jum with a vague idea where to stay but ... Read more >

THAILAND | Saturday, 2 May 2015 | Views [155]

Its not easy to remember everything when you come to write it all down here- seems there's always something to write and something to slip your mind. One thing I forgot to mention yesterday was the fireflies, think its my first time seeing them, ... Read more >

Day 8- Khoa Sok

THAILAND | Friday, 1 May 2015 | Views [151]

We headed back to Talet Kaset II with the 'ticket' we were given the day before and returned to the man. We sat down waiting for bus to arrive, he ripped our 'ticket' up and stuck writing on our sleeve- which I assumed said Khoa Sok. Made me feel ... Read more >

Day 7- Surat Thani

THAILAND | Thursday, 30 Apr 2015 | Views [175]

We decided as we would have to sort out transport the following day we would head over to find Talat Kaset II and see if we could buy our ticket in advance, and if anything know where we were going the next day. We found the station and bought ... Read more >

Day 6- Surat Thani

THAILAND | Wednesday, 29 Apr 2015 | Views [225]

Due to our checkout time and how it lined up with the train times we faced ourselves a 3 hour wait in weather I wasn't adjusting very well to. As we had overslept breakfast I went on the hunt for food at the train station, proudly returning with a tube ... Read more >

Day 1\2 - Bangkok

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 26 Apr 2015 | Views [206]

Since arriving in Bangkok the main thing we've done is sleep. Jet lag has hit us kinda bad, slept through most of Day 2. Taxi from the airport cost us B500 (£10) for a 40min ride into the heart of the city- from research this seems to be the ... Read more >
