For adventurous seeker, you MUST try out the 4WD off road adventure trip. Not only you could feel how it was for a real 4WD but also you get to know a group of nice people. In fact, I was now crazy about it. Will not miss any opportunity to join. Just imagine your 4WD got stuck in the mud and you couldnt up to a 45 degrees slope ... imagine you up and down the sandpits .... where you can only see the sky when the car driving up and ground when it come down .... sound a bit like roller coaster huh .... should try it especially during raining season when the road are extremly wet and slipperly.... the car gotta move like a crab - horizontally !!!! bla bla bla .....

most of the travelers go to Thailand Cambodia and Vietnam. Less visited are Burma and Malaysia. Burma is an absolute jewel of a place to travel. easy to get there from Bangkok. keep Air Asia in mind as they fly to all the places you wish to go and they are not expensive and reliable.
Malaysia is truly a very diverse country and the tourism is increasing, it is more developed than the other countries mentioned, the food is absolutely wonderful, varied scenery, English speaking population and much to see and enjoy.
Most people who visit Cambodia and Vietnam go on a set route, very rarely they go off the tourist path.

I stayed in Bario at Nacy Harris Homestay, did a little 2 day trek with a guide called Petrus, who took me to his home village, and talked to some government officials who where there to find out how people lived in isolated areas of Sarawak. Overall I found Bario to be a "state of mind" thing, an altogether pleasant experience. I still have a credit with Nancy so I might actually go back, well, that's only an excuse!

If you are having a vacation in Malaysia for a longer period particularly in southern parts of West Malaysia like Melaka, Pahang and Johore states, take a several days trip down south, i.e. to beautiful Singapore! Singapore has tremendous numbers of lovely and wonderful tourist attractions.
Among the popular tourist attractions in Singapore are the colourful Chinatown, the Little India, Sri Mariamman Temple, Ann Siang Hill, Istana Negara, Peranakan Palace, Singapore Botanical Gardens, Singapore Zoological Gardens, Fort Canning Park, Raffles Hotel, Lau Pa Sat, cruise along Singapore River, Boat Quay, Merlion Statue and Arab Street just to name a few. Of course there are many old and lovely churches, mosques and temples that attract many foreign tourists.
The other popular resort in Singapore not to be missed by any foreign tourists is Sentosa Island. Among its attractions are Fort Siloso, Musical Fountain, Underwater World and Butterfly Park.

In Penang there is a hotel on the top of Penang Hill which has a Restaurant which specializes in Hot pot. We werer there with my inlaws and after eating I went out with my sons to enjoy the breeze and view. After 10 minutes the owner asked me if i noticed anything which i had not. He them pointed out the canopy of the veranda was crawling with hagman's vipers a poisonous snake found in penang snake temple. Luckily they are very non agressive and will only bite if really provoked. The snakes previously sometimes fell on diners which gave people near heart attacks. Nowdays he has a wire mesh to prevent the snakes falling. He doesnt try to get rid of them as they keep rats and mice down. Needless to say I would never stay at that hotel!! But I have great videos of my kids and their cousins sitting on the verandah and a snake curled up on a ledge about 3 foot above their head.

going in a 4x4 down muddy lanes and across tracks to reach the glory that are the lakes of Perak. Go visit the real Malaysian countryside and see buffalo and otters, fish in the fish crammed lakes, or just wander in a 4x4 getting 'down and dirty' in the real Malaysia.
Get away from the cities, especially KL, Cyberjaya and Putrajaya and go into the countryside.

We just had our breakfast at a small restaurant somewhere in Tranquera and I was about to take a smoke when I noticed something was moving in the small canal at the side of the road. I'll just let the photos describe what I found.

This place is superb - visit if you can! The wildlife is amazing and easy to see.
Getting to Tabin from KK involves a flight to Lahad Datu (easily available through FAX) and then a 90 minute road journey through endless palm oil plantations, but once there it is worth it for the very real chance of seeing rainforest wildlife in close quarters. Try not to get demoralised by the journey through the planations, by thinking about what used to be there, and focus on the conservation that it taking place.
The camp is small and features a natural swimming hole. In this swimming hole alone we saw bats, a family of otters (brilliant), macaques (fighting & mating!), water monitor lizards, hornbills and numerous insects and butterflies - all within 200 metres of our chalet. There were few guests when we stayed, meaning the accomodation was extremely quiet and the animals don't seem put off by the human activity.
The guides (Victor & Danny) are genuinely enthusiastic and the whole place has a very, very chilled out atmosphere. On one of the night safaris we also saw a flying squirrel, which we watched glide between trees - that was worth the trip alone. To cap it all, we bumped into a herd of elephants on the journey back to the airport - including a baby.
One final point - don't go expecting lots of big old tress - a lot of the conservation area is secondary forest (although you will feel like you are in the jungle, don't worry). The upside of this is that the animals are easier to see.
Make the effort, get to Tabin, have fun, relax, spot novelty wildlife and support the conservation efforts - it's worth it.
