    If you have to go out at night, be careful where you tread & watch out for snakes. Normally the snakes don't bother us if we leave them alone, and most of the time you can see them just lying in the middle of the road until they get hit by the passing vehicle. We always carry small torch with us; it's handy to have one because some place doesn't...

    Use The Limepaste On The Affected Areas 2 more images

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insects repellent, Medication For stings And Bite And Also Lime Paste.
    Insects repellent for mosquitoes and also medication for stings and bite (in case you get stung by a jellyfish)
    If you get bitten by the notorious small insects either mosquitoes or sand flies (A bite from sand flies is much more nastier and itchier than mosquitoes) even before you can apply the insects repellent or use your mosquitoes patch…
    Don’t scratch because it will get worst and leave a nasty scar. Try applying the limestone paste instead (The Malays called it 'Kapur'). You can get it at any Indian's shop that sells betel leaves. We always bring it together with us and so far it work.

    Miscellaneous: Maybe you should bring some snacks and bottle mineral water too because most of The warong will be closing early at night and the provision shop is very far away.

  • Tip 3

    Probably the busiest main street here is this one where I snap most of all the photos. Life here is slower than where I came from, most houses are still wooden of those days, good for us to snap.

    more
  • Tip 2

    The street of this location is obviously less cars less peoples, some motorcyclists riding relax without helmet on, they look at visitors just that easy as if nothing is more enjoying than the moment.
