KL, Cameron Highlands & Penang.

Four of us would like to visit KL, Cameron Highlands & Penang in January. Could anyone let me know the best means of transport, how long to stay in each place & where are the best places to stay for good accomodation & great local food.

All other recommendations would be greatly appreciated as well.

I have not travelled to Malaysia before.

Bus (coach) would be the best transport option given the places you want to visit.

Personally I would do 4 days KL, 2 days Cameron and 3days Penang but it all depends on your interest.

You would be able to check the popular hotels via TA but imo best areas to stay are Bukit Bintang in KL, Tanah Rata area at Cameron and Georgetown at Penang.

As`we will be in Malaysia for two weeks should we do 4 nights KL, 4 nights Cameron Highlands & 6 nights Penang. I have heard of an all day food tour in Penang which I am very interested in...... & I know I am going to enjoy it all!

4 nights in CH is too long, 2 days is sufficient.

For the extra days go to Melaka, 1 or 2 nights. Melaka ia a Unesco Heritage Site where you will be able to see history .... Portugese, Dutch and British were here since 1511. Melaka is just 2hrs drive from KL. There are many tourist attractions here. The River cruise, walking tour of Kampung Morten, the revolving Taming Sari Tower and various museums are a must visit site. Enjoy yr trip. :-)
